    Ronni, I suppose a trial run isn't acceptable?
    After a 25 year marriage ended in divorce, I met a man who wanted to live together. October will be 35 years living together, not without some moments!
    He does things which irritate me to distraction. I'm sure I NEVER annoy him!
    I entered the arrangement with the idea if it isn't working, I can leave. I learned it isn't that easy to leave someone you respect and care for.
    Ronni, all the advice in the world won't make it right or wrong for you. Use your own judgement and love and forgive. Happiness!

    It is absolutely acceptable! We're not getting married till 2020. Living together is the next logical step, and so we're going to do that for a while, but I'm planning to take even that in stages. The kids will miss me a whole bunch (River started crying when he realized that I was actually going to move out! ) and even though I'm looking forward to this next stage in my life, I'm still going to miss everyone here dreadfully so I'm going to have to ease into this transition in stages.

    And if Ron doesn't get his @#$% together and get the work rolling on the Master bedroom, we're going to be married before I ever move in!!! :mad:;):heart: Just kidding...we're both working hard on finishing up the Den while also whipping the laundry room into shape which has been half finished since I met him!!

    You haven't said what age nor how many kids you have.
    Is he good with your kids? How are you with his kids?
    This will be a vital part of your relationship.
