I’m curious on your thoughts about moving in together before marriage. My parents had lived together before getting married, they had a successful relationship for 30+ Years until my dad passed away. I’m comfortable with the idea and think it’s the next logical relationship progression however my girlfriend seems pretty adamant that she needs to have a ring before considering moving in together. She thinks that if we are cohabitating there’s no point in getting married and we should just be roommates. I get her point of view but don’t know how to navigate this. She made it seem like she would “give in” to the idea if push came to shove but i dont want that as i fear resentment would grow down the line.
