- Wedding: September 2015
I’m a waiting bee, and it looks like my SO and I are officically going to be moving in together in March. We practically live together now, but we are in an apartment that he rented on his own and doesn’t have much room for both of our stuff. Also, I love his place but wouldn’t have picked it myself. I want my own closet and such, and will now be paying part of the bills. We are going to pick a place together for us and our dog where we can move all of our storage from our parents’ garages.
A little about us, we have been together 3+ years, I am 21 and he is 31. We are best friends, argue very little, and we get along in our current living situation. I never saw myself living with someone before marriage, because I am a virgin, though that’s a whole nother issue and I am not looking to argue that. We aren’t religious, so I am not concerned about any of that. I’m not concerned about what others think anymore either, I know I am a virgin no matter where I sleep at night. We don’t make a ton of money, so there will be stress at times. We know we are going to get married to each other, probably engaged sometime next year, though we are not rushing it. We both want to get to a point financially where we can support the other as well as ourselves, if something were to happen. We also have a combined $20,000 in the bank, so we are doing okay.
I guess I am looking for guidance from other waiting bees or bees who have been in a similar situation. I don’t have any friends who are even out of college yet, let alone looking to move in with someone. I’m not so much worried about things, but I get very stressed out about change, wondering how things will be different. I would love some encouragement, guidance, stories, etc. How did it work for you? I just need a big sister type to tell me what to expect.
Thanks in advance bees!
