@Kat_Kit2000:  I wouldn’t officially move in. I regret moving imy with my SO so soon. It’s great now but it went from the honeymoon period to house work etc! Just this evening I got a informative chat about how to use the water boiler, I said to SO ” wow this really turns me on  you know”……not!!”

you have a lot going on with school and I’m 30 and still go home to my parents every second weekend! some ppl think its sad but I love my family and I want to make sure I never feel guilty for not spending enough time with my patents!

just play it by ear and when you feel like having a sleep over have one! And if you’d rather spend time with your family than you won’t feel bad either!

What bills of yours is your family paying? I’m assuming gas and food…

When I started staying Friday though Monday with DH, he never asked me to contribute to his grocery bill!

Can you find something to pay for gas? Maybe pick up a Saturday shift waitressing?

@Kat_Kit2000:  Yeah I think you should just stick at your parents for now and perhaps think about continuing with the idea of easing your way into being with SO more, and just get a taster of what the better option is while you’re finishing grad school.

I’m in a similar position to you. I’m still in school and rely almost completely on my parents to pay my tuition, books, cell phone, food etc. I felt (and still do feel) completely helpless. I have a part-time lab position, but I make only a little above minimum wage and can’t work too many hours due to my courseload, so my paycheck is negligible. I am so grateful to my parents for their generosity for lending me this money, but it’s to the point now I wish I had taken loans from the government instead. I do now live with my SO, but since he is in grad school as well his income is fairly limited. My SO and I do have a joint bank account and I end up spending quite a bit of his money for living expenses, but my parents still give me significant amounts of money to make ends meet. It’s not a great feeling that I’m dependent on so many different people in the process of getting my degrees 🙁 It’s not like I’m buying lots of extra stuff or anything extravagant, but everything seems to add up very, very quickly. I don’t have any advice for you, but just wanted to let you know others can commiserate.
