Living together

I can’t find a Bible verse that says that it is sin to live together, so why is it sin?

Hi, and thanks for your question.

The Bible doesn’t use the phrase ‘living together’, but it does describe living in a sexual relationship outside marriage, the lifelong covenant between a man and a woman, as ‘fornication’. Marriage as a way of living and an institution is found throughout the Bible and is taken for granted when the New Testament speaks of the relationship between a man and a woman. Creation accounts are often referred to, see Genesis 1:27; 2:24.

Other Bible verses relating to this are: Malachi 2:14; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Corinthians 7:2, 9 and 1 Thessalonians 4:3–5.
