Congrats on your new found freedom! I’m sure it’s a very liberating experience. And I second what you said about living together. Nothing earth shattering was revealed in the 5 months we lived together before marriage, and here were are almost 13 years later and guess what??? Still nothing new. I think that’s an excuse for a lot of (not all) people. If I had to do it over I would’ve waited until after the wedding, but our circumstances were a little different. Bottom line, my parents moved out of state and I had nowhere to live because I couldn’t afford my own place. So it was either move 8 hours away with my family or move in with my now husband. 

Regardless, rock on! Happy for you!

Another bee chiming in to say, good on you.  Also, agreeing with the living together thing.  I did live with my husband before marriage but I learned the most about him while we were living 6,635 miles apart and from traveling together. That’s when I learned how he communicated,  how he managed stress, how he handled his anger, how he felt about marriage and kids, etc.  The things I learned from living together were so small in comparison.

Congrats! How was he able to get away with all the furniture? Just out of curiosity bc in my situation I have records of me purchasing/paying off the furniture so if we broke up there’s no way he’d keep it.

It sounds like you were right, and that if you had been honest with him earlier he would have made your remaining time living with him incredibly uncomfortable.


I think you did the right thing. Congratulations on getting yourself out of that situation.

Breathe! Enjoy being yourself! Not much furniture around for now, means you have space to dance.

You did the right thing.
