Another vote for “hell no”. I’d be done. He is not a partner, he’s just some guy looking out for himself.

He doesn’t seem committed to a future with you. Do you think it’s possible that he’s planning to leave you? Seems like he’s getting his ducks in a row before he breaks up with you. Sorry, bee… But you’d probably be better off without a partner who cares so little about your feelings/input anyway…

Major. Red. Flag. Buying a house is a massive decision and it’s incredibly shady of him to be sneaking around and having everything in his name. Turn and walk away.

Having a really hard time coming up with valid justifications in my head for his actions.  I’d get to the bottom of it, quickly, and engage the people in your life you are close with in case you need to lean on them in the future should you find that his actions are nefarious.  At the very least, his presentation is not impressive, and communication is something he will need to invest time into improving risk losing your trust in him permanently (if it is not already too late).

Your engaged, but no date has been set. He’s making lasting future decisions without you. I’m getting the vibe that he proposed to stall you and is not ready to commit.

This man is not ready for marriage. Marriage means you collaborate on almost everything. I would not want to partner up with someone where my input means ZERO. You are going to feel very alone never being valued. 

I work with alot of ladies. I asked a happily married woman lately what the key is to her successful 20 year marriage. She said “we never spend more than $500 without checking in with each other first” I think that’s respect right there. 

At best your FI is a moron at worst he’s gearing up to leave you. I’m sorry this is happening to you. If I were you I would be getting my ducks in a row to protect myself financially and otherwise.

I don’t know. I kind of disagree with some of the other comments. While I do think he is being unreasonable by not discussing this with you and I do think you need to sit down and have a good discussion about it. I don’t think you have to break off your engagement based on this information alone. My husband and I very much kept everything separate until a few months of being married. We got engaged at 24, still quite young, and we pretty much kept everything separate until we were about 27 after getting married at 26. Then it just happened naturally where everything became ours and it was no longer “your account, my account, my house, your house, my money, your money”. Now at as 30 and after 4 years of marriage it just feels natural for everything to be “ours” where as before I didn’t. I definitely think take on board what everyone has said. You don’t have to set a date just because your engaged. You’re allowed to be just engaged for as long as you both want.

cathiemaney :  They live together. He bought a house without her. Would you have been ok if your fiance bought a house & moved out without consulting you? You think this is something she should just ignore? She’ll be living in their apartment by herself if she doesn’t follow him to HIS new house.

I actually have a coworker who lives in a house her husband bought without her. I assure you their marriage is not one to emulate. 

Please reconsider this relationship. I fear that you will try to overlook this house-buying nonsense because you don’t want to break up, and moving into a house seems like the easier, better choice. But this is not about the house, it is about his character. He has an utter disregard for you, your relationship, and the future of your relationship. You are not his partner. And if you marry him, you will be entering a marriage filled to the brim with situations just like this one, because he is not going to change.

cathiemaney :  I really don’t see any of this being a problem stemming from keeping finances separate, god knows a massive percentage of the bee are adamantly against buying a house with someone until marriage and plenty of couples keep finances separate after marriage.  The problem here is OPs fiancé didn’t include her in a single part of the process, so either he wants her to move out of their home and into a house he bought but hasn’t even let her see or he doesn’t want her to live in the new house at all, neither of those scenarios are very positive.
