Why I’m in favour of cohabitation before marriage -Simi

The Nigerian musician Simi Kosoko, better known by her stage as Simi, has declared her support for engaged couples living together before marriage.

She clarified that cohabiting will enable a prospective pair to get to know one another better before determining to tie the knot.

Simi disclosed that she lived with her husband, Adekunle Gold, prior to their marriage in an interview with the most recent episode of the Tea With Tay Podcast.

She maintained, “I used to go over to Adekunle Gold’s place for us to spend time together.

“I am of the opinion that… Maybe I shouldn’t share this opinion because I feel like religious people might not agree with me.

I personally think that people who want to get married should live together for a little bit before they do that.

The way someone is when they are outside in their best behaviour is different from how they are when they are cranky and they haven’t eaten or when they wake up in the morning or when they are snoring.

“When you live with someone you know all the sides to them, that is when you really know if you can do forever with them. Millions of people have gotten married without living together. But I personally think it’s a good idea to cohabit before marriage. It doesn’t have to be for long.”
