Hello all :) I need help!
I am 21 and currently in a very serious relationship. We are in love and discuss our future together on an every day basics. I still live at home with my parents because I am trying to save up money for school come this fall. Not to mention they pay all my "main" bills. I plan on living at home once school starts as well. Problem is, my boyfriend (whom is 26 and still lives at home with his parents) wants me to move in with him as soon as we get engaged. This is the one thing that's holding us back right now.. He always says that he doesn't want to be paying for the house himself and he doesn't know what I'm like to live with. He says he doesn't want to marry someone that he hasn't lived with. Now, my parents are completely against this. They have strong beliefs that I should be married before I live with someone. I am so confused. My boyfriend and I have such a great relationship and this issue is the only one we ever get into an argument over. Should he be more understanding of my parents wishes or should I be more understanding of his? What's the solution?!
