To marry or not – that is the question! Some people prefer to create families and get married officially, some remain just life-partners choosing cohabitation and enjoy life as it is. Many men – many minds, but it is curious if this fact influences people’s happiness after all?

Both had been in official relationships before, and as that hadn’t been a successful experience, both decided not to repeat it again.

Goldie confessed to Elle, that she does not believe that the act of marriage itself is the key to building a strong bond between partners. “It is about compatibility and communication” – she adds. It is hard to argue with that!

Goldie is sure that not marrying each other gives them a freedom of choice. They stay together not because they are tied with obligations, but because they want to.

In 2012 there have been a research published in Journal of Marriage and Family. It stated that couples which just lived together without marriage felt happier, more secure and satisfied with relationships.

From another study of John Helliwell from University of British Columbia it is clear that among the factors which lead to life satisfaction was friendship between partners, and not the act of marrying each other.
