The Disadvantages Of Live-In Relationships
1. Lack of commitment
2. Takes the charm out of marriage
Marriage has little to offer to couples who have already been living together for a few years. They are already too used to each other and physical intimacy with one another is also not something new.
Also live-in partners get to know each others flaws so they might not want to get married after living-in. Dealing with a heartbreak of a live-in relationship is tougher.
3. Social censure

5. Lack of social support
Because you have to remember when you are living in you are pretty much on your own because most often your relatives and your family are not aware of your live-in status and even if they are aware they are not involved in your life.
Marriage legally binds you to your respective families but when you are living in in case of emergencies or financial need you have to turn to friends. Family is not there with you.
6. You get to know the terrible side of your partner
7. You can become clingy
