I have been planning on moving in with my boyfriend for over a year now. We’re a few months away from it and I found out today that his parents vote no on me moving in. They don’t hate me or anything but their logic is he’s paid for his house and everything he owns alone for the past 3 years so he doesn’t need my help. Nothing about us living together is a matter of financial desperation. Yes there will be financial benefits for both of us but that is just a perk. I enjoy his company and we both want the same things out of life and have discussed them at length. I’m also over at his house so much it just makes sense. Will then not fully supporting our decision harm our relationship? Is it possible they could convince him to postpone moving? He’s very close with his parents which I find extremely attractive but sometimes they tend to be a bit overbearing and I don’t want him caught in the middle either. I know I’m probably overthinking this and in the end it’s our life’s but any advice would be helpful.
