VerbEdit

live in sin

  1. (intransitive, idiomatic) To cohabit as if man and wife without being married.
    • 1922, John Galsworthy, A Family Man, act 2:
      Ralph: Athene gone and got married?
      Builder: No. It's—it's that she's gone and—and not got married. . . . I suppose you'd have me eat humble pie and tell Athene she can go on living in sin and offending society.
