Hey everyone.. Just to let you know, he's 36 and I'm 29. I moved in for about two weeks but found I couldn't handle it. We've broken up and to be honest, I'm kind of glad this all happened; it helped me work out that he was all wrong for me.

Maybe he really wants to move in with you but haven't been able to find his own place yet, so he suggested that as a temporary solution? You can live there and at the same time search for your own place together. Maybe you should try it out, OP. However, if he just doesn't want to leave his parents' house then you should sit down and talk with him. Be honest! I hope you can work it out, good luck!

Or maybe they've been going out since 15/16 and the boyfriend is still living with his parents at 21 which is a reasonable age - most likely college students.

#8- Firstly what a stupid comment, its not the first of its kind I've seen of it either. The preconception that Asians and Middle Easteners rape young girls is very ignorant. IMO it stems from the fact that in the earlier centuries the age on consent and for marriage was 12/13, and yes some backward countries still follow this. But to generalise a whole country and culture for the practise of a few is ignorant to say the least, education and an open mind is essential if you don't want to be stuc

34, That's not very impressive. FML staff sometimes randomly delete comments (completely silently, by the way). Even if those comments contain no offensive words, no swearing, even if they're well though-out and even if they were upvoted. I'm not sure if that's staff fault or if there's programming error somewhere, but it happens sometimes. COmment #8 was a rape joke, by the way. Maybe it had it coming. Still wiping it out completely doesn't look right to me. "comment has been moderated

Maybe suggest to him that you guys get your own place? Communication OP. Let him know what you want, even if its something you think he should already.

It's petter to be a family guy than being alone. Especially since the American economy has reached one of the louis-t points in the 21st century. At this point, they're lucky that they don't have to eat rock stew- ie is smarter than you think. I mean I wouldn't mind living with my parents for a while since brian' a house or renting an apartment is difficult. And all of these condescending comments are megan' me crazy! Was that too much?

Jesus Chris-t, I forgot to mention the last one! What was his name again? Oh well, as I was saying, you got to be gr- effin' kidding me if no one is finding an upside to this FML.

Made my night! I used to see a guy who lived with his parents, things got a bit loud one night then I ran into his dad at the shops. He said "So, sounds like you had a good night!" Needless to say things got very awkward.

my girlfriend's brother has the room right next to hers, so as a courtesy I don't do anything in their house. but that doesn't stop him from loudly boinking his loud girlfriend right next to his sister's room! ahh family stinks sometimes

The idea of living under the rules of someone else's parents sounds horrifying to me. OP can still save up money whether she's living with her boyfriend's parents or living with her own parents.

My boyfriend and his dad are living with his grandma so his dad can afford their own place. The rules aren't the most convenient, but they need to get back on their feet. I don't understand why someone else's rules would be horrifying to you.

I guess it depends on what sort of parents OP's boyfriend has and how old the OP is. But from my experience, living with my own parents past the "normal" moving-out age was hard enough. I couldn't imagine living under the rules of someone else's parents. I like having my independence. It sounds like OP wants to live with her boyfriend in their own house, so I'm guessing they're old enough to move out and/or have enough money to move. It sounds like she wants that independence and to

my and my fiance moved in with his parents for 4 months after finishing uni. yes, it's not ideal but as long as the parents don't object there should be no problem. it allows you to live together whilst saving up for a place of your own. as for these people saying 'no rent, housework or bills', i would think out of common courtesy you'd offer to help around the house. i washed up every night and cooked once a week, as well as offering to pay for food whenever they went shopping. moving in with
