    What do you guys think about moving in with gf, after 3 years of being together, in a long distance relationship, where the distance gradually decreased from 4 hour flight, to 1.5 hour train ride. We are both 18 and are thinking about moving in, since our unis aren't that far apart (one central London and the other one on the outskirts). We both know that it'll be tough after maybe a month, and we will have our disagreements, but both believe that we have excellent communication (since we've been together for 3 years in LDR), and that we will be able to resolve any issues. Her parents are all for it, whereas mine think that it's not a good idea, since it's too early and people at hour age need "freedom".
    I know it seems early, but we are best friends apart from being in love, and I think we can manage it just fine....

    Going from living an hour away to seeing each other everyday is quite a change but otherwise if your relationship is good communication wise then you should be able to figure out any problems. I certainly don't think it's too young although I m a bit biased there as I moved in with my boyfriend before I was 19 myself.

    I would say living with someone at 18 is high risk. But if your relationship is strong and you feel like it, why not..
