Ouch! I have a similarly conservative set of standards, and I, too, will find myself living under the same roof as Fiance for four weeks before the wedding. Around the few but vocal people who may squawk about it, I’m just not making a huge point of it.

@LaTortuga: I see what you’re saying now, especially after reading Brielle’s post. Sometimes the mere appearance of a person sinning might lead others astray, and while living together isn’t a sin as far as I can tell, leading others astray is.
OP, not judging you either way, but if he does move in and stay there the week before, my recommendation is to be very discreet.

This in your face, up your nose… in your personal business (the bedrooms of the nation stuff) is crap !!
Plain & Simple we are all responsible for JUST OUR OWN SOULS.
It doesn’t matter an iota what other people say or think… it is what you DO (or don’t do… at 1 o’clock in the afteroon in the park, or 1 o’clock in the morning in your own home … the choice is yours… after all they call it FREE WILL for a reason)
These religious zealots who see themselves as being mighter than thou should read more of the Bible with all the extra time they seem to have … they seem to have misssed the part on Judgement and the condemnation of others !!

Meh. Ignore them for the 7 days. If you feel that you and your Fiance are honoring your beliefs and just happen to be moving in together a week before the wedding then there is nothing wrong with it. I love PPs comments telling them he is sleeping in another room, the couch or outside if they get really nosy.

That’s the thing we decided either a) he will be sleeping in another bedroom or b) I’ll stay with my parents for those 7 days. But people think it’s their place to react. Like I said our parents have no problem with it because they know (since I own my own home) that we are adults and if we wanted to we would have had many opportunities before now. They trust us, but others not so much. My biggest thing is that I don’t need the drama 10 days before our wedding.

Just tell them it’s okay because you only have ear sex so you’re still a virgin.

@missbumblebee: I think you staying at your parents’ house for that week is a fantastic idea! Not only would this resolve the concern of the appearance of evil and help alleviate any potential extra temptation you and your Fiance may have faced, but also it offers you a unique opportunity to spend some precious time with your parents before your wedding. Even though you do not currently live with them and have your own home, I think it would be very special for you to have that time with your parents, especially your mom! 🙂
