My GF and I are on the verge of moving in together and I plan to pop the question shortly after. (We've been together for 18 months.) Her parents are telling her it'd be a big mistake to move in together before marriage because 70% (can't remember exact %) of couples who move in together before marriage, split up. Well no shit! Probably because they couldn't stand each other all day long, everyday! And being married would have just made it harder and made a divorce. But if you live together first you can tell if you could live together well or not. And they're telling her that since we've been serious in our relationship (for the past 14 months or so) that my Gf has had no life and it's blended into mine and she revolves around me. It makes me feel like she thinks I'm one of those controlling BF's, when I'm really far from it. True, my GF and I don't really hang out with anyone else but isn't that pretty common? I never really had many friends, two or three realy good friends who all now have serious relationships as well. My Gf used to always to go parties, hang out with tons of people but she stopped once we got serious and her mom sees that as her life revolving around me. I've always thought her mom seemed almost jealous of our relationship and would try to cause problems with us. She'd always say BS like "ya'll spend too much time together" and "There's no way ya'll are really that happy, someone is hiding something" .... Well, just wanted to get that out mainly.
