The Consequences of Cohabitation

The number of marriages in America has dropped by 50% since 1970, while cohabitation has become the norm. Yet 1/2 of all cohabiting relationships end within fifteen months— without a wedding. And 2/3 of those who do marry wind up divorced. Not only is this devastating to the couples involved, but it leaves the children of these failed relationships scarred for life. Today, over 40% of all births are to unmarried mothers. Out-of-wedlock births rose from 224,000 in 1960 to 1.5 Million in 2005. 

What is God's answer? Maybe Father DOES know best?


Greater Than I Ministries (GTImin.com) is a non-profit ministry providing Worldview RESOURCES such as Christian educational videos, podcasts, and books for the benefit of Christians worldwide. These products are specifically designed for the purpose of “equipping the saints for the work of the ministry” (Eph. 2:11-14). In each video we present, the purpose is simply to answer the question "What Does the Bible say about that subject? Hosea 4:6 states “My people perish from lack of knowledge”. We firmly believe that the parents (and future parents) within the church can – and must – reclaim the faith and our families by once again taking personal responsibility to educate ourselves and our children. The goal of GTI Ministries is therefore to encourage and promote intelligent, thoughtful application of Scripture to every vocation or station in life, and thereby to reestablish Christians as leaders who are being Salt and Light in this bland, dark world... A world that is desperately in need of the Truth of Christ that will overcome the lies of this age!
