Me and my DF are getting married in six days. I want to be moved out by next year (or early next year). We currently live with his mother and family. Well, long story short-living with them is getting difficult. And I don't think our marriage will make it any easier. Fiancially, I make about 1000 a month and his income is very unpredictable and unreliable (anywhere from 200-500 a month). We have about 400 dollars worth of bills right now (phone/insurance/credit card/ect). I found a house about 45 minutes from work asking 186,900$. 10 acers of land with a barn and pond. It's a nice looking house and I have been asking questions about it. My question for ya'll is- do you think we could do it? I mean, could there be ANY way we could pull this off? Should we wait (grin and bear it) for DF to get a reliable full-time job (preferably) or a reliable part-time job? I hate putting my personal financial stuff out there like that but I need help. I would talk to MIL but she isn't ready to "cut the umbilical cord" so to speak. How well off were you when you ventured off on your own? This will be our first home.
