We're supposed to use the views of Judaism Christianity and Islam..

Answers
Ah now this question is begging you to make a bold opening statement-something along the lines of "This discussion asserts that cohabitation does, as far as religious believers are concerned, undermine the sanctity of marriage"or"Cohabitation, for the most part, does not undermine the sanctity of marriage"Now you've chosen your opinion, look at these links below:https://www.openbible.info/topics/the_sanctity_of_marriagehttp://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/jewish-marriage/http://www.islamswomen.com/marriage/marriage_in_islam.phpWhat do these tell you about the 'sanctity', or importance and 'holiness' of marriage?Then think of how going against the tradition of marriage and engaging in a non-binding (cohabitational) relationship might go against some of these guidelines?An example can be found in Islam. Muslims believe that monogamy (the taking of one partner as opposed to several) is the best way to preserve the community and promote family life. To go against this, and not enter marriage, is seen as unclean and detrimental to the chastity (purity) of the individual, as evidenced by this Quran quote:"Whoever has the ability should marry for it is better in lowering the gaze and guarding one's chastity. Whoever is not able, let him fast for it is for him a restraint."You can use quotes like this back up your argument- be careful to include 'the other side' in your argument however, and explain what others might think and why.I hope this helps!
