I took five seconds to search your previous posts to find something dumb. It yielded no results, so congratz. C-walking for sure.

In a practical sense, we wouldn't be here as a species if not for eons of uninhibited laizzez faire fucking. Living together before marriage is a good way to evaluate the relationship, save on expenses, and get laid more regularly. People who argue that this is wrong because their magical holy book tells them so are, in this respect, dumbasses.

Anyway, if you're really beat, sneak in some quick porn and then head into the shower to "freshen up." Nothing beats a good shower wank. If you absolutely must be in front of your porn you won't like it though. Imagination is required.

Glass of milk in one hand? The more appropriate question would be, "How are you going to do that without a girlfriend around?

Woahhh, OP. You are coming out east to go to my TTT??? If you want to receive your mail at my place and lay out a sleeping bag in the bathtub when your girl's parents come out, I'm sure that will take care of your problem. I'm sure it can be arranged for a reasonable price. :lol:

Love the length of this topic. OP, do what you want and fuck the rest of 'em. Okay, maybe not quite that zealously, but you and your gf need to do what you both want. If you are willing to take the consequences from her parents, go for it. But obviously these consequences must be evaluated. Personally, I think living with a significant other is a foolish idea for reasons completely outside the scope of religion and morality. With that aside, live your life my man

Ever heard of sample bias?

Here's one possibility: Couples who wait to cohabit until they get married are likely to be more religious and, thus, more likely to have religious objections to divorce and, hence, less likely to get divorced. Thus, couples who do not cohabit are less likely to get divorced than couples who do cohabit due to religious views rather than to cohabiting.

Mennonite parents here. I hear ya OP. But sometimes I wished I had listened to my uber religious parents a little more, or I would have avoided making a mess when I was younger.

If I were you, I'd just do what you want to do, but don't talk about it. There's no real need to tell her parents anything. Why would you anyway unless you're looking for a fight?

I have successfully lived a debauched life for several years, and my parents haven't a clue. It's pretty easy to do.

All this moralizing going on is BS. Different things work for different people / Do what you want / Nobody cares.


well quite possibly a contributing factor, a lot of other research in support of this (also along the veins of divorced parents, etc.) have really been focused on the idea of the permanency of relationships (which goes back to the religious exceptions) -- so in a way, your concern is tied to the reality of it (ppl's views on relationship permanency).

that being said, it also seems to apply to OP's situation IF the OP were a statistic...lol

Didn't read the whole thread, so maybe this has been covered.

The problem the OP posits isn't with his girlfriend's parents, it's with his girlfriend.

She is an adult. She needs to decide for herself what kind of relationship she wants with her parents. If she objects to living together because of her own views, that is one thing. If she is objecting to living together because her parents don't approve, that is an entirely different matter (and more problematic, IMHO).

I'm gay, and I have had a similar situation with my parents and my long-term boyfriend. While the situation isn't completely resolved, I think the best option is just to go for it, and let them come around. At the end of the day, her parents love her and want her to be happy, or at least they should. They'll fight it in the beginning because they think you aren't in her best interest. However, a year or two down the road, when she is still with you and their relationship with her is falling apart, they'll realize that you aren't going anywhere and they'll start to accept you. It isn't easy, and it really sucks short term, but sometimes you just gotta do it.

If she isn't prepared to make that sacrifice, well....you know where her priorities are.

+1. At first I thought this said Wednesday, May ___ (as in three days ago). Then I saw it said March, and I felt like an idiot for reading through the whole thread to make a contribution. :evil:

Disappointed I missed this thread though. Reading through it has been a great reminder that religion is silly willy.

I hate to bring this thread back to life but I have to report the end result.

She moved in with me and the sky didn't fall and the threats didn't actually come to fruition.

I dated and lived with a girl with a conservative catholic mother who was divorced from the not so conservative catholic father. The mom was nonplussed on the idea of living together and the if the father cared he kept it to himself. At the end of the day, when it comes to religion, remember that you are not dating/marrying the parents, being respectful of their beliefs is a goal to strive for, but not when their beliefs impinge on your quality of life or opinions on how to live happily. Living together before marriage is always a good idea.

Good to hear OP, glad it worked out.
