Britain's NSA stated the following, based on the already stated UHJ guidance, and noted that economical or practical reasons might necessitate such living arrangements:Dear Walrus,
it's interesting that some NSA's have ruled that cohabitation is permissible. Do you have any documents available in this regard?
I have been in a similar situation before I married my wife and our NSA gave us a deadline to either separate or marry. Sadly the reason we couldn't get married at that stage was not that we were unwilling but that my mother-in-law did not accept the law of consent at all and refused to give us an answer.
"With regard to mixed sex accommodation, in general, the National Spiritual Assembly understands the situation of people of opposite sexes who share accommodation for financial or other practical reasons. In these somewhat dangerous times, it is even sometimes advisable for a group of young women to share accommodation with young men as a protection against intruders and those who might threaten them, providing, of course, that they are clearly accommodated in separate bedrooms and there is no suggestion that there is a sexual relationship among them."
