So, after almost 3 1/2 years together, my fiance and I are beyond ready to move in together! With the wedding only 33 days way, we have been hunting for a rental. We want to buy eventually, but I have 2 years of nursing school left and we want to relocate to his hometown before we buy. So, I found a perfect rental that is close to my college, 2 bedroom, 1 bath, W/D in the house for $850/month with a 1 year lease. It is definitely a starter home and the price is at the top of our budget, but we both love it.
Well, he called his mom to tell her we found a place and her response was, “I thought you guys were going to live with her parents and save money for a while.” WHAT?! That was NEVER discussed and definitely was NEVER an option! After all this time not living together, we are beyond ready to have our own place. Anyone else have in-laws or parents that assume their ideas are the best, even when they are the worst ideas ever?! It was definitely a face-palm moment for us!

Omg let me move to wherever your state is! Here a two bedroom with one bath (no washer or dryer, you have to use the coin operated ones.) with nothing included (meaning water, electric, etc. are seperate bills) is $1740 a month on the low end. I’d kill for that D: Back onto the topic though! When my SO and I told his parents we were moving in together they almost had a heart attack. His mother even thanked Jesus that her mother wasn’t alive anymore to see her child living in sin (as in moving in with someone unmarried). Both of them then proceded to spend the next few days trying to convince him not to do it. So…. there’s that…….
