So I’ve been dating my boyfriend for about 8 months. We have talked about the idea of getting married before (not so much legally but in a personal vows sense), and I’m totally for the idea. But now things are complicated. We both lived in SC when we met, but he separated from the military to go to school in Texas (yay gi bill). Now I’m wondering how this could work. He wants to get married, though he lives 1000 miles away. I have options to move myself down there, but without going into gritty details… they would require quite a bit of capital expenditure and personal sacrifice. (if we could only get married legally, there would be literally no problem :/)
So I guess the question is: am I crazy to put myself through a life altering change to be with the man I love? I can’t imagine myself getting burned by him, but I’m sure guy’s whose wives run away with their fortunes say the same thing. At the same time, I know straight couples invest in their marriages, in the same way, all the time. My mind is looking at the logic, and not a fan of betting my future, but my heart doesn’t have a single qualm.
