Without commitment. No it isn't the same. Living together is simply a sloppy way of acting like a married couple without the responsibilities. Many people will argue "Well, it's only a piece of paper! Big deal!" It's not about the legal piece of paper, but it's committing to someone you love and what better way can you do this then by committing to marriage. Anything else is a cheap way to try and get what you want without taking responsibility for anything. I'd rather live on me own .... it's simpler that way.
