    You should absolutely bring this up. I was just talking about this subject with my fiance and his brother a couple days ago. You can’t expect your fiance to live up to your expectations if you don’t tell him what your expectations are!!! And guys are kind of dense and forgetful, so don’t assume he remembers talking about getting engaged before moving in. I, personally, think honesty is usually the way to go and definately with something as important as engagement! Be clear. Be honest. Be open minded. Go for it!

    Definitely bring up an engagement if that’s what you want before moving in! That’s the smart thing to do!

    Also, if you rented out your current room, could you keep your place/keep accruing equity and still afford to move in with your SO? Don’t forget that you’d be able to live in a 1-bedroom with him, which is like having a roommate in a much cheaper place. Might help offset the costs of moving to a more expensive area. Plus, Pasadena is awesome!
