None of this is new - 20 years ago my mom broke it off with a the man she was dating because their relationship had reached the place for that decision - they didn't want to violate their religious values by living together, but both of them were on several very expensive medications and, while their incomes individually allowed them both to qualify for help paying for their prescriptions, their combined incomes would have forced them to pay for the majority of their pills out of pocket.

They decided to go their separate ways instead.

A few years later, my mom stated she regretted the decision and if presented with the choice again would choose cohabitation.

But, hey, you know - as long as no one is taking advantage of taxpayers and living on the government dole (greedy lazy welfare retirees anyway!) it's all good...

Everything should be done to encourage marriage.

Perhaps if they can't have children they should not be getting married. (tongue in cheek) It is sad to think that money should keep people from this greatest of institutions.
