Relationships Australia rep Kylie Dunjey said that a lot of people are in long-term relationships, living together under the same roof, and choosing to make a final commitment of marriage further down the track. The spokeswoman asserted that people, especially those who come from divorced parents, are waiting longer to get married because they want to be certain of their partner. Dunjey added that many young couples also wanted to buy a home and save up for the wedding before marrying.Source: ANI << Researchers Identify a Rescuer for Vital Tumor-Suppressor Smartwatches may Not be Hot Picks This Year >> Recommended Reading It's The Tiny Things That Can Ruin A Good Marriage Reveals A New Study Do you and your partner love spending every waking hour together?
