If you’re in a relationship and cohabiting, you’re not alone. In fact, you’re part of a growing trend where it’s increasingly common to live together without marriage as a goal. However, just over half of cohabiting couples get married. Fifty-four percent of first marriages as of the early 1990s began as cohabitation first.

Modern Valentine’s Day is a far cry from its roots in Ancient Rome, which celebrated the Lupercalia festival in mid-February. Our current Valentine’s Day focuses more on poetic cards, sweet chocolates, and beautiful flowers exchanged with people we love.

They can be a romantic start for a new family, memorable wedding venue, honeymoon destination, or just a place to rekindle love.
