According to Dusit plore's survey, This survey is about attitude of modern Thai teenagers with staying together before marry.Subjects of Dusit plore were 1,437 teenagers in Bangkok. This survey shows that most of them (61.26%) think staying together before marry is normal while few of them (28.61%) don't think so because they think staying together before marry is conflict with Thai culture and they think that it isn't fair for women.I think staying together before marry has many advantages because we can know character of our couple and many things that we can't know if we don't stay together.Although it has many advantages, I think it isn't appropriate for Thai society.Finally staying together before marry is depend on your attitude and your society

In my opinion, Most of people chose to live together before marrying because they want to know and understand more about their lovers. At the first time, when they choose to be boyfriend or girlfriend, they would present all the good way to each other but it is not actual thing for them. So when they become closer and live together, they will know each other for a long time. Everything canít be hide, they will become themselves and they can know that they can live together or not.
However, This survey is about teenagerís opinion and I think that most of them are students. So if they love someone and they choose to live together while they are studying, it doesnít appropriate and it is conflict with Thaiís tradition also. Moreover, it will cause many problems if they live together and woman has pregnant before marrying. Certainly most of Thais canít accept it because they may think that woman doesnít have prestige and she will be insulted from her friends. Furthermore if her boyfriend doesnít accept her baby, it will cause problems again such as suicide, abandon child, etc. On the contrary, If they marry before living and have a baby, the baby will be accepted from her husband and Thaiís social by law and those problems would not happen. By the way, living before marriage or marriage before living has both advantage and disadvantage but I think that the important thing to help we live together are understanding, accepting, real and forgiving.
