What would you do, how would you do it?
BF and I have been living together for 5 years. We get along well and do love each other, but the romantic love just isn't there anymore and it hasn't been for a couple years. We're good friends who respect each other but that's it. After a serious talk recently, we both admitted that marriage just doesn't seem like it's in our future. If we were to get married, we wouldn't be excited about it.
It's not an easy decision because we're comfortable where we are, but we both agreed that it's probably best if we moved out and got our own places. So that's where question comes in - BF does not have consistent income (commission only sales job) and has been struggling, but working so hard, the last couple years. I've been covering rent. I don't think he'd be able to pay a full rent on his own (where we live has a HIGH cost of living), and he has a lot of furniture so renting a room from a friend is probably not an option. Do I extend our current flexible lease a few months until he can support himself? Do I get a smaller cheaper place, but allow him to come with me until he can support himself? What would you do, oh helpful and wise Question Club? :)
