A large number of couples in Texas as well as throughout the country are choosing to cohabit either as a step towards marriage or in lieu of it. Some of these couples may also consider purchasing homes together, but doing so may not be a good idea. If a couple does decide to move forward with purchasing a home while they are unmarried, there are a few things they might want to do in order to protect their interests.

In fact, a study by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found it was the second-most fought over issue among older divorcing couples.
