Simi Kosoko, the popular Nigerian singer, who is simply known as Simi, has said she is in support of intending couples living together before marriage.

She explained that cohabiting would allow an intending couple to know each other better before deciding to get married.

Speaking in the latest episode of the Tea With Tay podcast, Simi revealed that she was cohabiting with her husband, Adekunle Gold before they got married.

She said:-

“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. Because I don’t think you really know someone that you’re going to marry until you cohabit. 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.”
