I know the initial response is no, but I wanted to spell out the circumstances and get peoples thoughts.
In a nut shell, I was raised catholic to believe that it is wrong to live at the same house no matter what, but I have heard there are exceptions to this. I am wondering If I can get some theologians to offer their 2 cents and offer an outside perspective.
My Fiance’ is a single mother who makes just enough to be above food stamps and government assistance. She is currently living at a privately subsidized faith community for single parent families, which will kick her out in September. She is unable to find a job to make enough to keep an apartment while paying for utilities.
She has applied to a number of jobs and had interviews, but has not had any luck yet.
I have a 3 bedroom house and live by myself. The issue has come up a number of times that she and her son could move into the other two rooms living as “brother and sister”, but Ive had concerns that this would interfere with getting married and would be being unfaithful.
We can’t hurry the marriage up, and I am left with the dilemma of saying yes or say no and relying on faith that somehow it will work out that she finds a better job or another similar opportunity as she is currently in.
One last background, sorry for being scatter brained, we had the same scenario a year ago when she found a 1 year ticket inside this subsidized community.
Thank you In advance.
