Not Thinking Realistically
Two people who are romantically involved with each other may be so in love that they fail to see their relationship can go either one of two ways. The reality today is that partnerships—romantic or otherwise—also face a high likelihood of dissolution even if those involved are so confident in their compatibility with their significant other that they believe ‘happily ever after’ is inevitable, even if they decide against ever getting married.
Careful consideration of the possibility of a break-up should be done by any unmarried couple prior to purchasing a house or any other property for use by both members. Doing so will spare them of any further problems later on, not the least of which is the huge financial and emotional burden of having to deal with the result of a choice they made during happier times.
