Talk To Steph: Should I Move In With My Boyfriend?

Hello Stephanie,

I have been dating my boyfriend for six months. It has not been easy, we have had a lot of arguments and have broken up a few times. He thinks the solution to the problem we are having is if I move in with him so we can know how to live together. He says he needs to feel the presence of a woman in his house before he can propose or take me seriously.

My problem is: my father will kill me if I do that. I told my boyfriend this but he says that if I am serious about the relationship and want to get married, I have to focus on him and not on what anybody else says. I love my boyfriend and my greatest wish is to get married soon, but my family are against it and I know that if I continue to delay, I might lose my relationship. I am 25 and I don’t have that much time to be jumping in and out of love.

What should I do? Should I move in and later explain everything to my family?

    No offence, but I think he’s not being responsible. Because a responsible man would have much respect for ur family for raising u in such a disciplined way. If in 6 months, you’ve been having a lot of disagreements, what makes u think that u will have less disagreements when u move in with him. My dear, being 25 doesn’t mean u’re too old. Take ur time and study ur partner (not necessarily from his house) b4 u make the big decision. All the best.
