Miss thing Posted March 3, 2017 Share Posted March 3, 2017 My boyfriend and I have been dating for 1 year and 3 months. Recently we have discussed buying land together and then building a house on the land after a short while. I think this is a good idea and we both agree on the area that we would like to live. I don’t believe in living together until we are engaged. He agrees with me on this, but thinks we should buy land together before we are engaged. I’m not too sure however I’m leaning on the idea that such a big financial decision needs an equally big commitment such as an engagement. His thinking is more pragmatic and he thinks that all our money should go into the deposit then he will take some time to save up for an engagement ring then get engaged before we start to build the house. He likes this idea because it allows us to have a bigger deposit and then gives him time to save up for a diamond engagement ring. I on the other hand care very little about having a pricey engagement ring and am more concerned with having a very stable commitment before you make a huge financial commitment and decide on where you will live together. Please feel free to add your thoughts and advice. Link to comment
