Would you let your partner live with you rent free?
Depends on their situation. Just being a lazy 🍑? No. Temporarily going through some hard times? Yes.
They are in debt due to studies?
I think we could work something out.
yes, they would only pay if they had to
My house barely has space for another person, so yes.
If he's trying hard to find a job but he's not being lucky, yes.
And if he is not.
I'd allow that as long as there's a reasonable and good excuse for it. If I was rich..I wouldnt care but even then, I don't like freeloading people tbh.
Because there in debt?
What's the reason why they're in debt and why don't they work?
University and there looking for work.
I would let him stay at home meanwhile then.
Maybe for a month (like if their house in inhabitable) but after time I'd ask them to contribute.
Nah it's because they have to pay of there debts?
Their debts, their problem - rent please
They can't afford both?
then bye bye I'd break up with them. I'm a caring person, but I have little patience for people who wont look after themselves.
They are trying to pay there debt back though isn't that looking after themselves?
They've put themselves into this position where they would basically be homeless if its not for you putting them up - thats not something I want to be a part of
Ah even though the debt is to do with them going to university to study and get a better job at the end of it?
Yup, don't gamble with house money if it you can't afford basic living costs.
What do you mean house money?
Money that isn't yours (i.e. the partner spending your money to do things when there money should be going to basic living costs).
They are not they are spending all there money to pay of this debt once the debt is payed of they will contribute to the house?
Again - thats putting their priorities over the relationship. Its expectant to focus on your debts while someone else keeps you afloat.
If my partner is in a tight financial situation sure.
If he was struggling, certainly. But there would be a limit
What would be the limit?
I mean if I didn't NEED her money I guess it would be fine, but NGL I would be irritated if she didn't work and did nothing to contribute around the house
Dosent work but not sure about the res
No rent for us.
What about bills?
He can pay them
So if he dosent pay them?
