Should I move in with my boyfriend at 18?
please save the nasty comments about me not being mature enough to handle it, because I am just as mature if not more mature than any adult I know. my boyfriend Chase and I have been together a year and 3 months. I can honestly say that I have never been in love with someone before until him. Chase is the best person for means I love him and I know this with every fiber of my being.I used to do drugs and drink and a few of my past boyfriends didn't want me to do it but I did anyways. Once I started dating Chase he told me that I am a lot better than that. Nobody has ever had the power to change my mind on anything before. Chase and I have discussed it with his parents and we have come to a conclusion. Chases sister Shea just moved out so his mom, Debbie, and his dad, Bob, told me I can move into her room when I'm 18. Shea is even fine with it. Q1: My main worries are what's going to change in our relationship. I've been reading a lot of bad and a lot of great things about it. What are your thoughts on this?Q2: I've noticed that most of the things I've read just are the thoughts of people moving in alone with their partner and no parents. Do the patents being there make a difference? Or would they?Q3: I have also mainly been reading things on couples having to sleep together. This is something we won't do for a long while if not until we're married. Q4: Even though we are young, I know that we will be together through a lot. We already have. My grandparents are high school sweethearts and so are my aunt and uncle. Is it smart to move in when I'm 18 or am I risking everything by doing so? If it is bad, why do you think so. If not, why is it not?Q5: My two oldest brothers have lived with their girlfriends for 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 years and they seem to be just as close as ever. Am I just seeing their good sides?Q6: If I do move in with Chase, what are some things to know before I mess something up other than knowing I have to be more patient. Open to seeing him at my worst. Open to knowing his quirks. Open to sharing my space. Open to knowing I'll be with him 24/7 and may get annoyed like I do with my little brother. And all if this is for him to have to deal with about me as well. Q7: What are some ways so keep our relationship as alive as ever if I end up moving in with him? And also the opposite. If I don't end up moving in with him how can I keep it from going down the drain? Thank you do much for the answers! I am super nervous and I cannot make up my mind and I need advice from people that have gone through this situation or something similar to it. Thanks again! I really appreciate everything!(:
