So, my fiance proposed that we move in with his mom and dad next year. Currently, they live with us (in my fiance’s home) while their new house is being built. I want to buy a new house next year. FI says that in order to save more money to build our dream home, we could move in with his parents then we can stay there rent free while we rent out his house to tenants. Bascally saving us around $1,000 per month. It sounds like a great idea but I am a little worried about moving in with his parents since we will be newly weds (lack of privacy). Oh year, and his parents love me and we all get along fine. Please give me your advice, opinions, or experiences. Thanks!!

@Charlies_Angel: I know that saving that money sounds great but let me tell you that living with other people is so hard. We had my sister and her husband living with us for a while and I regrete it because during that time, my sister and I didnt get along. I thought our relatiionship was doomed but as soon as she moved out, we got really close.
I would rather not live with my family in order to save our relationships because no one ever see’s eye to eye. It might change living with them because now you will be in their house. What if it takes longer then you expect?
There is a lot to consider but I am sure you and your fiance will make the right choice for your family. Good Luck!

My Fiance and I are currently living with his parents while we save up for the wedding and a house of our own. As of right now, I have no complaints. His mom cooks for us from time to time and the best thing of all, you get to save money!
If the lack of privacy is your only problem moving in with them then you’ve got it good. We make the best out of our situation. We shower together late at night while his parents are asleep and we just stay quiet in our room =) You guys have bigger plans for the future so concentrate on that. You will have all the privacy you want once you guys get your own place =)

How long have they been living with you guys? How are things going now? If they are going fine living with you, personally, I’d probably take the chance and live with them for a little to save up. I dont see why lack of privacy should be an issue and any different now vs after marriage. To me, things dont really change *that* much after marriage if you are already living together… its not like the marriage is a magic wand that is going to make you want to hump like rabbits (assuming having sex is what you were concerned about with lack of privacy)
