I'm just curious what you ladies think. There are a lot of pros and cons but I think my decision will ultimately be not to move in with BF, unless I read some persuasive arguments here. I'd just love to know what you guys have to say on the topic. BF and I haven't been together very long but have known each other since highschool. He's buying a condo and wants me to move in with him when my lease is up. We already spend every single night together, and have been for months! Practically everything he owns is already at my place. The pro is that I'd pay much less rent than I do now for a much better living space (my cat would have more room to play, this is no small consideration!). My mom always said that "once a guy gets the milk, he doesn't want to buy the cow." I AM looking to get hitched in a couple years (is this un-politically-correct to admit?). Honestly, everything in my experience has contradicted my mom's maxim: I've known a lot of young women who have moved in with boyfriends and have gotten married shortly thereafter. But one other obvious con: an even messier breakup. Did you move in with your SO before getting married or engaged?
