It’ll be okay!  I have lots of friends who have done this to help save money.  It’s helpful to everyone involved in the situation (You help with your friend’s mortgage while also saving money!).  It’s a good friend, so you already know the roommate and can communicate about issues without feeling awkward.  I know it’ll be an adjustment, but just keep thinking about how it’s for the best!

We lived with DH’s younger brother.  My advice would be to establish some rules with your Fiance about spending time together.  For example, does he come home from work everyday and just play x box with his friend?  How do you two determine or get on the same page regarding when is couple time?

For us, things worked out fine.  We were also working from home though so DH’s brother was often gone. The biggest problems were that he NEVER cleaned up after himself.

Maybe go in on a collective house cleaner?
