Now more than ever, couples live together and share finances before marriage as a means of testing the waters of their relationship prior to making a permanent commitment. Some couples even purchase homes prior to their marriage. In some instances, one party purchases the home, titling it in his or her own name and paying for the home with his or her separate funds.
