Moving In With Boyfriend When Parents Don't Approve

Boyfriend Wants Me to Move Out and In With Him, Parents Don't

This post comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

Hello all. I need help! I am 24 years old and currently in a two-year relationship. We are very serious, in love, and discussing our future together. I live at home with my parents because I am trying to save up money for when I go back to school in the Fall. I also plan on living at home during that time as well. Problem is, my boyfriend wants me to move in with him so we are able to spend more time together, especially since school will take up most of my time.

My parents on the other hand are completely against this. They have strong beliefs that I should be married and not living in sin. They have me kind of roped in because they have decided to pay for my schooling. I am so confused and do not know what to do. If I move in with my boyfriend, my parents may hate me forever and may not pay for my tuition, but if I stay at home then my boyfriend thinks we won't be able to spend as much time together and the relationship will suffer. My boyfriend and I have such a great relationship and this issue is the only one we ever get into an argument over. Should he be more understanding of my parents wishes, or should I be more understanding of his? What is the solution?!
