You Asked: Should I Be Worried That My Boyfriend Is Moving in With a Girl?

Dear Sugar,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year and are very much in love. I know a year does not seem like a long time, but I know that he is the one for me, and we plan on getting married in the future. However, he is moving an hour away for law school while I finish my undergraduate degree. He is currently looking for places to live but he doesn't want to live alone for financial reasons. One of his options is living with a female six years older than him who neither of us have before. I completely trust him, but for some reason I'm wary of him living with a woman. Should I be worried or am I overreacting? — Concerned Constance

To see DearSugar's answer,


Even though you trust your boyfriend, if the idea of him living with a girl makes you uncomfortable, something's got to change. If you haven't already done so, talk to your boyfriend and let him know how you're feeling. Long-distance relationships are already hard enough as it is, so there's no use in complicating matters even more by a living situation you're not comfortable with.

Hopefully he'll be understanding and willing to find a different roommate that you both agree on. I'm sure there will be plenty of other men attending his law school looking for a roommate as well, so don't lose too much sleep over this — he hasn't even signed a lease yet!
