Still, he just is not comfortable allowing a romantic partner to live with him until they tie the knot– because, in his eyes, they are just dating.
“And marriage is when you go all in together, and I’d be happy to do that once we’re actually married,” he reasoned.
It’s also important to note that he was once married before during his early twenties. But, his ex-wife cheated on him very early on, which is why he wants to make sure that he gets it right the next time he decides to tie the knot.
So, he believes that two years is an extremely reasonable timeline. He also made it clear that he still views his girlfriend as wife material.
“I’m not just stringing her along,” he vented.
Still, his girlfriend being upset has made him wonder whether refusing to let her move in with him right now makes him a real jerk.
Can you understand why he thinks it’s too soon to move in together? At the same time, do you think couples should wait to move in together before they get married, or is it better to try living with someone before you say, “I do?” How should he handle this situation?
