Hey everyone! I'm basically new on here but have been lurking around for a while. My boyfriend currently owes about 8k in student/credit card debt, and is spending the majority of his paycheck on this, after rent, and debt he doesn't have enough left over to save up for a ring. We recently calculated a timeline as to when he'd be done paying off loans so he could start saving up for getting engaged, and it'll take a while. We both want to get engaged next year (2012) and I am lucky enough to be living in my apartment for free, so I am thinking I might offer him to move in with me temporarily, for 4-6 months so he can save up that rent money for a ring, with the condition that that money is being set aside for the engagement. Once he's saved up enough he can get his own place until the wedding. I am wondering if this is a good idea. We currently live together unofficially, as he has spent every single day/night here for the past 6 months, so he is basically paying for his apartment as storage until his lease is up. Are any of ya'll currently doing this? Do you think it's a good idea? Thanks for the input!
