Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?

While marriage has traditionally been associated with moving in together and sharing a home with your spouse post-wedding, more and more couples are making the decision to live together before they get married. This premarital cohabitation has become increasingly common in the U.S., where cohabitation has increased at the same time as marriage rates have decreased; in other countries throughout Europe, however, marriage remains a more stable option than premarital cohabitation.
The benefits of living together before marriage.
Now for what we know you’ve been waiting for—all the reasons to celebrate and say, “Yes! We live together!”
Living together before marriage can be advantageous because:
You will have more opportunities to learn intimate details about your partner before marrying them.
You’ll learn to live together in a way that is healthy and productive by sharing household chores and moments of domesticity.
Add to myWE:
You will gain insight into whether or not you and your partner could be compatible when living together in the long term.
You can save money by splitting utility bills and rent.
At the very least, living with your partner before getting married means that you can glimpse a bit of marriage before you commit!
For some couples, on the other hand, moving in together may not always be the right choice. Why?
It’s possible that living together will make you feel obligated to get married. In some countries or families, living together prior to marriage may be frowned upon.
Living with your partner does not mean benefits such as health insurance or social security will transfer to them, unlike when you are married.
Cohabitants cannot file taxes jointly, while one of the benefits of marriage is that spouses can save money by filing their taxes together.
Choosing to live together before a strong relationship has formed may result in disagreements or reveal incompatibilities you don’t yet have the ability to work through together.
Thinking it through.
Sometimes, it’s impossible to come up with the answer on your own. Perhaps you and your partner have differing views, or maybe both of you are stuck. When you’re not sure how to proceed, we can’t overstate the importance of getting a third-party opinion from a professional Online Counselor or Life Coach.
