Re: Living together before marriage. Yay or nay?

I didn't read all the responses but I imagine you got some wonderful advice already. I moved in with my ex because of a very unplanned pregnancy. He was not "the one" but I was pregnant and wanted my baby having a traditional family. We were talking about marriage and I was going to do "the right thing". Then I had my baby and I totally snappedout of it. I immediately broke up with him and never looked back. I think deep down I knew what was right, but I was so worried about appearances. Now I don't care at all what anyone thinks. I always do what is best for me and for my DD.

My advice is don't move in with him because you're pregnant. That's just a horrible thing to do, trust me. Also you aren't ready to move in by the sounds of it. You two seem to be on different oases when talking about the future. Unfortunately pregnancy just speeds relations up, buti highly recommend taking it slowly and doing what feels right, not what society or friends or family are pressuring you to do.
