    Yes, but just one other person

    IMO couples need intimacy. 

    I would consider it for personal financial reasons, or if I had a family member or very close friend that needed support for a short period of time, but if not… No way in hell!

    Nope, not at all. I don’t like people. LOL Okay that sounded bad. But I LOVE my privacy! I like walking out of the shower with just a towel on & going into the living room. I like that my husband & I can just relax & watch movies with no interruptions. I like that we can have sex when & where we want. That we can cook what we want when we want, not have people talking keeping us up all night/day (my husband works night shift), ect ect ect!

    My husband’s uncle & his uncle’s fiance mentioned this to me. Actually she mentioned it, that it would be nice to find a couple they could trust/have a good time with/get along with to get a place together to help out on rent, ect. But that is a no go for my husband & I.

    I don’t see it as a problem for other people if that is what they want though! To each their own! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ugh, we’ve been engaged for over a year and got an apartment together WITH a room mate: Terrible Decision!! There is no alone time to do anything together whether it be cuddling or arguing =P it seriously blows but it saves money while saving for the wedding..

    I would be open to it depending on the situation but DH would only open our doors to a fmaily memeber or freind in need. In fact, I had a roomate recently as DH lives M-F in another city for work and I found someone with a partner in another city who was doing the weekend commute before deciding if it was the right time to live together. That was short lived as my roomate decided after 2 months that he was spending so much time with his partner he may as well just move in. He found me a replacement (single guy) and I declined. In the situation that we had more than 2 bedrooms/1 bathroom, I would be fine with a roomate/couple with segregated living quarters. We stayed with my aunt and uncle for 3 weeks and it worked well because we had a bathroom and bedroom on the second floor while they were on the first and their kitchen/living room/ den common spaces are plenty big enough that no one felt cramped. Also, it was a clear visit not a long term living situation so the dynamics were of course different.

    Frick, i’m still trying to oust my stupid SIL because she won’t take the initiative to leave.  I’m getting married in Jan and we’ve had her living here for two years.  Enough is enough.

    When I asked her at first when she was planning on moving out, she was like, “maybe when you guys have kids.”  That’s like three years down the road for me after marriage.  Is she retarded or something? What kind of person lingers somewhere after a couple gets married, despite having that couple make repeated requests for you to leave.

    I hate it.  It’s so hard because its my fiance’s family and he likes the money-saving part.

    Ugh, need to make more money!

    The option I would choose is not there. I would live with housemates as long as they were family on either side. I would only consider a non-family housemate, couple or otherwise, if our finances were really, truly desperate and we had no other choice.
