my little poly dream might be coming true :)
So here's where we are...
My husband and I rent a house that also has a separate basement suite for rent. Our landlord has been doing some renovations down there and it will be ready by June 1st.
My bf of 8 months is rather unhappy in his current living arrangement. Our basement suite would be a vast improvement, it's larger, cheaper, has easier bus access, etc.
Now although not exactly like living together, as he would have a completely separate suite, this would still be pretty damn close to living together.
All three of us sat and down and talked about it tonight and agree that this is something that we can do. A final decision hasn't been made yet, need to speak to the landlord about some details.
I'm daring to hope that my little poly dream is coming true... I've thought about this for awhile now, having my bf join our family, really have him in my life without reservations.
Can we really do this? I've read a bit on the forums about why things can 'go south' with these kind of arrangements. We're talking about possible issues now, trying to get ahead of what might come up. Since some of the renovations done were adding insulation in the ceiling, we even did a 'sound' test to see how much we could really hear from the bedrooms :P To my relief, I had to holler pretty loud before I was heard!
I'm nervous as hell, can this really happen? I'm just so excited by the possibility, I don't want to miss any obvious issues.
Finances are totally separate. We're not going to have free reign of each others suites, they will remain two households.
Any suggestions as to what else we may need to consider?
