Should You Live Alone Before Getting Married?

After college, I was lucky enough to find a reasonable 1-bedroom apartment that I could rent on my own. It was so great to come home and not have to deal with anyone nagging me about my dirty dishes or my wet towel on the carpet. I could take a shower when I wanted to, play music as loud as I pleased, and go to bed when I felt like it.


If you can afford your own place, I think it's so important to live alone before you get married because once you get married, that's it. You'll never be able to have your own place again. The whole experience has taught me a lot about myself, and eventually when I do get married, I won't regret not living alone.

So tell me, do you think it's important to live alone before you wed?
