I’m just wondering if I’m the only one?! I’m 25 and the fella and I have been living with my parents for over 18 months now to save for our first home. Well the saving part has happened, we have a nice little deposit now and are just about to sign for our first block of land and put a house on it. Our house will be finished in September, just in time for our November wedding. However, on a day like today where I’ve had a stupid fight with my mum September feels like an eternity away!
Is anyone else out there struggling with living with the parents?

You are not the only one! I live with FI and his parents. We basically have our own apartment in the basement. We’re saving up to buy a house, so we’ll probably even be there for a year or two after the wedding. His parents are very laid back and are hardly ever home, so it works out well for us.
It may be tough now, but it’s worth it when you can buy a home without wasting tons of money on rent while you save up! You’ve only got a few more months to go. Good luck!

Mr. KM is right now! His lease with his roommate ended and there wasn’t anyone he wanted to live with and living alone was more than he wanted to spend! So now he’s saving money, lol.

Yeah, I am moving back in with my mom (I’m actually at the airport as we speak :(((((((( ) after living with FH for a year and a half! I’ll be with mom for about 7 months, cause I’m taking a semester of leave to go to an internship or something. Haven’t quite figured that part out yet. She just wants me home

I actually just spent my last night at my mothers house.
The house my FI and I bought closes today!!! 🙂
My FI will stay at his parents place until after the wedding. (I live farther away so it made sense for me to move in to the new house)
My emotions are everywhere! Excited, a little sad…

You’re not the only one SparkleSpaniel! FH and I currently rent with my mom at the moment to save us on some cash for the wedding and to buy our future home. I’ll be glad when this is over though – I love my mom but we’ve been here for just over 2 years!

I think there are a lot of us in this situation. I am living with my parents to save money to buy a house and FI was doing the same with his parents, but since they wanted to charge him rent he moved in with me and my parents. I swear lately every little thing they do drives me. We are now counting the days!

Mr. P and I are living with his parents. So far, it’s been the smartest decision we’ve ever made. Like you, we have been able to save a lot of money because of the generosity of my in-laws.
I wrote a post about this here: http://www.weddingbee.com/2009/12/01/a-new-family/

Me & FI are each living with our parents. We’re not allowed to move in together before the wedding for religious reasons, which is hard, so we won’t be moving in together until after the wedding. Depending on how it goes, we might be staying with his parents, but his house is split into upstairs & downstairs, so they’re like apartments.

yes, Mr.D and I are living with my parents at the moment, while we were in England we were with his! We’re hoping to be able to move out this spring. He just got his greencard – so that should really help!

We lived with his parents for a few months over the summer. But my friend lived with her inlaws for a year after they got married to save up.

My parents have an in-law suite off their house. My grandmother lived there for 11 years. When I moved back to NY from DC I lived in the suite. Its a cozy apt with living rm, bdrm, kitchen and bath- just perfect for me. Plus, I love my parents so making the decision to move back home was an easy one.
Now that Im married (eeee!!!) and going through the immigration process into Canada- I still maintain my apt. for legal purposes. Mr. W and I stay there when we’re in town as well- so its our home away from home. Its absolutely perfect!

I’m with my parents at the moment, because I’m on semester break. I live in a house owned by my university during the semester.
