INTRO: I hesistate to post this because I will get an overwhelming amount of responses telling me Im stupid and I shouldnt be doing this, but Im going to post because I hope there is someone out there that has done the same thing SUCCESSFULLY and has any sort of tips or advice for me to make it go as smoothly as possible. SITUATION: Boyfriend and I broke up. Dont know if you remember my thread about our sex life going down the tubes but it was inevitable. Problem is, we just bought a place together three months ago. Because the mortage is new, we would lose money if we sold right now. Also, our payment is higher than what we could rent the place for. If either of us moved out, the other could not afford the payment alone. Ive considered moving out and he can get roommates, but I dont want to move right now with Christmas and all. It isnt an option for him to move and me get roommates because I have kids. So our plan is to stay put until the end of January and re-evaluate then. We moved my son to the basement and separated our bedrooms. We try hard to get along while the kids are there, and for the most part succeed. We have always been great friends, so we try and focus on that. QUESTION: Has anyone else ever done this and had a good experience? I know most will say im crazy, and a lot of friends have already told me that, but without completely financially devastating myself I cannot do anything else. Advice?
