When deciding to move in, remember that just because you aren’t legally bound, doesn’t mean your finances can’t be impacted by the other person’s decisions.
Jay L. from Greensboro, North Carolina, shares her story:
“My boyfriend and I were together five years and planning to get married. So we purchased a home together, instead of us both paying rent. When our relationship began to unravel and I decided to move out of the house, I quickly realized what a mistake I made. Shortly after I left he stopped paying the mortgage and the home went into foreclosure. I’m still trying to clean up my credit from the mess I got into from living with that man!”
