Hi, I am 25 yrs old and I have never lived with my FH. We’ve been together for 9y and I’ve always lived with my mom so I would be able to financially help out (she’s a single mother and has raised me and my younger sister, 16ys, by her self). Now 1 month before the wedding and I am litterally getting freaked out at the aspect of moving out. Of course I want to be married but every time I think abt leaving I just can’t see myslef doing it. I partly think its guilt since my moving out will also mean that my mom and sis will wither have to rent out my bedroom to stay there or move out also. What to do!?!

Wow.. that’s a pretty unusual situation. I was excited to move in with my husband (just my boyfriend at the time) but my moving didn’t have a negative financial effect on anyone else. I know it’s not the most romantic newlywed situation but would it be possible for your FI to move in with you and your family for a while? I just don’t think I could leave my family in a situation where they had to move or have a stranger live with them because I’m not there to help with the cost any more.

I am really excited but a tiny bit sad at the same time. I just can’t believe this chapter of my life is coming to an end and that makes me a little scared but I am really excited about what is to come.

I’m sure it will all work out for the best, things have a tendency to do that. Talk to your mom about it you’d feel better to know what’s her plan in keeping afloat once your gone.

FI is really pushing it, but I’m nervous too. I went to college really close to where my parents live, and I’ve always pretty much lived at home (I was in the dorms, but I frequently went home). Added to that – I HATE change. With a passion. I’m super nervous too. Not sure how that would help you, but at least you’re not alone!

I am really nervous :S. I have never lived with ANY guy, and yes I know that he isn’t just ‘any’ guy, but this is all very foreign to me.. *sigh*. It also doesn’t help that I will be relocating to the U.S, which in my opinion, both these changes are A LOT to deal with at once. 🙁

I’m fairly excited to move in with FH after the wedding. I think it has helped that I moved 1500 miles away from my family for college so I don’t have that dependency. Also, I have had a terrible history with (female) roommates so I spent all my free time at his place last year and the year before (after we started dating). This year I seem to have pretty great roommates so we’ll see how that goes. But moving in (and getting married, period) will simplify so many things and in general make our lives better.
Is there anyway your family can afford their current house with your mother and maybe your sister working?

I was excited to move in with my hubby (then we were just dating). I was living with my parents, and wanted out. And I loved him and loved being with him, so I thought it would be awesome.
We did have some issues though, the first couple of weeks I lived with him. Just lack of communication, but we worked it all out.

My FI and I won’t be living together till we’re married either. I’m mostly excited but a little nervous, too.

We’re waiting to move in together till we’re married, but I am SO SO excited to live with him!! It’s just going to be so much more convenient haha… we won’t be 45 min away from each other, we can just be together, and set up our house how we want it.
Sigh… so excited!!
