So you’ve been dating for a while and are pretty sure he’s the one.

Congratulations!

A natural next step might be moving in together.

You could definitely make it work, but many relationship experts caution against it.

If you’re on the fence, it pays to do your research and balance the pros and cons before jumping into something that you both might regret.2

You’ve probably heard all the reasons for moving in with him, but here are some that you should consider that say hold off for a while.

1. It Might Deter You from Making a Marriage Commitment

Unless you can both agree that you’re good with your relationship as is and you don’t want it to lead to marriage, relationship experts say to stay living apart.2

With the economy these days, more and more young people are living at home with Mom and Dad to save on expenses.

Moving in together might solve the financial aspect, but if that’s the only reason why you’re making the move, your relationship could suffer.

My boyfriend asked me to move in with him. Uh, no. With a capital N. Cohabitation, shaking up - whatever you want to call it, may lead to a disaster. Maybe not. Two each his own. Personally, when we're ready to make that move to foreverland, then we'll move in together.

Getting married makes more sense than moving in with a guy

Moved in with the love of my love( on and off type relationship) because he wanted to move out of his parents bad. And guess what? It was a bad idea! I think the relationship lasted 6 months. We were not ready and moved in for the wrong reasons. Not pessimistic @claire, it's more like smart. We parted for a couple months, and are currently living together again because we decided we were finally ready. Guess what? We have never been better! Going strong (been living together for a year now, now deciding maybe a house next?? ☺️)

How pessimistic.

My friend moved in with her boyfriend after a year of dating. Two years of living together and he wasn't making any steps toward marriage. She broke up with him and realizing she wouldn't have room had to leave her dog of 2 years behind. 😔
