From freedictionary.com, Cohabitation is the act of heterosexual couples (partners) living together and having a sexual relationship (especially without being legally married). It is also the living together of a man and woman in a “supposed” sexual relationship.
“Remember, true marriage has nothing to do with the social or religious formulas of this barbaric humanity. The authentic marriage is performed when a couple unites in spirit, soul, and sex; the true marriage must be pure like a lotus flower.” – Samael Aun Weor, The Major Mysteries
It is not uncommon in the Gnostic Movement for partners to practice cohabitation. Cohabitation is on the rise within the last two decades. This is mostly because that legal marriages and weddings are expensive. By expensive, weddings from the United States can average from at least $10,000 to a whopping $88,000. Legal marriages are a barbaric formula of the society of the humanoids. All legal marriages are called false marriages.
For this reason (by the will of the Shekinah [Virgin Mary]), a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife. Together, they shall be one flesh. From Genesis 2:24.
To be one flesh is the sacred act of the Perfect Matrimony. The Perfect Matrimony itself is true marriage. This leads us to this question: Must we get (legally) married in order to perform the immaculate sexual act?
As one of the most frequent questions in Gnostic Teachings, marriage is only performed by sex.
As stated in “The Binding of Marriage”, marriage is not established by words, statutes, constitutions, or laws. It is only established by immaculate sexuality.

To co-habituate with your spouse is never to be taken lightly. Cohabitation is always serious and binding. Both you and your spouse must renounce fornication forever as part of your vows of cohabitation.
Once you and your partner are married by the sexual act, the marriage is permanent and irreversible. As a result, you and your spouse must co-habituate with each other forever.
Cohabitation is a very cheap alternative against legal marriage. If you are living in a city, state (US States as examples: Mississippi or Michigan), or nation that bans cohabitation, I, Juan Mirieth Auriel, recommend revolving out of the city, state, or nation if you are able to do so.
