This or That: Tiny Pad or Parents' Place?

This or That: Tiny Pad or Parents' Place?

Financially speaking, times are tough for you and your fiancé. He was recently laid off and your job doesn’t pay well to begin with. Unfortunately, he’s been having a difficult time getting a new job, and now that your lease is up, you guys need to downgrade in order to make ends meet. Your apartment hunt has hit a few snags, but you desperately need to get out of your current place before drowning in credit card debt. Would it be worse if . . .

This: You get stuck with the only affordable apartment around, which is a 200-ft. studio that doesn’t even have a closet? The neighborhood is nice, but still, you'll literally be stepping all over each other.


That: You end up back in his old bedroom at his parents' house, who only asks that you’re home for dinner every night, and breakfast on Sunday mornings? It's spacious and cheap, but they're completely demanding!
