Living Together Before Marriage?

Destinie • Redhead. Mom of two. Engaged & inlove

So my fiance and I have been together 5 years and we have 2 beautiful children together. We live separate and the kids live with me. We have outings and spend time together to maintain a healthy family relationship. We both want to live together but I always thought that couples who live together before marriage have a lasting relationship because they have experience with each other's life style. I was told that couples who live together before marriage usually end up getting divorced.. Now I'm completely lost on what to think. As I said before, we both want to live together and have our family together. I haven't told him I've been questioning it because I'm afraid of upsetting him or causing a rift in our relationship. Anybody out there have any advice? Sorry this was kinda lengthy I just wanted to give the whole situation. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
