Nope, my man would never do that. He would rather work extra shifts before giving up his pride and privacy to live with my parents. And I would have never asked him, as I would have never wanted to start out my married life that way. What’s easiest isn’t always what’s best.

Fiance and i are moving back in with my parents for the foreseeable future.
he doesn’t love the idea of living with them, but it’s going to work out. we can’t afford to pay rent on our own. plus, we both have screwed up credit and 99% of apartments require good credit back in the area we want to be. so we’re moving in with my parents. they have a big enough house that it won’t be an issue.

We lived at my mom’s for a month after our wedding because we had to wait for the previous tenant to move out before we moved in. We got married on February 14 and our apartment was ready on March 15. It was so stressful to begin our marriage in that way, plus we had to live in the garage bedroom and we had ZERO personal space or privacy. My stuff was EVERYWHERE between my old bedroom and the garage. I would never do it again unless we HAD to because of an emergency (housing damage) or a financial emergency. Now my mom is moving and we would have more space if we ever had to stay with her temporarily, but my husband wouldn’t make it out with his sanity and the stress and toll it would take on me having to deal with the entire situation would be very hard to recover from.

I couldn’t live with my parents. They stress me out too much and Dear Fiance would be uncomfortable living there. Maybe we could live with his if we had no other choice, but I think it would be stressful.
If you’re trying to save money, I wouldn’t suggest quitting your job. My Dear Fiance would be pissed if I quit and we had to move home.

I just saw your previous post about losing your job. I’m sorry. And I agree that finding a new one would be difficult under the circumstances.
