What is the reasoning for the individual to not want their partner as co-owner? Do you believe this is a make it or break it for the relationship?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The person feels it is a stability issue. The feeling of being stable without knowing if the relationship will eventually end up in marriage. Yes, it is a make it or break it moment. Will the two decide to live together in this arrangement, or end the 5-year relationship.

well 5 years is a lengthy time and I would think would show the person that there's been a lengthy period of stability - unless the relationship has been on and off for those 5 years, in which case - I would say the individuals need to determine if they're in it for the long haul or not. Do both want to get married at some point?
