So far your answers are yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! Which one is unclear? The real question is why would you want to move in with your boyfriend. Until he's ready to call you his fiance and put a ring on your finger, I would consider staying put and keeping your homestead exemption. Have him break his lease or wait to move in together until his lease is up.. and hopefully, by then you'll get a ring. Another way around the 25 character rule Mark. And I love Carl's trick. I'll have to try it.. fax numberless of course. Good luck Mrd.
