Dp and I have the opportunity to move. Our current living situation is the two of us, my girls and our roommate (who is also my ex and father of my two kids, weird, I know). If we moved we would be moving into a much bigger house, but with exh's g/f and their child together, whom I babysit for. The only bills that would need to be paid are water and electric and we would split them in thirds. So clearly this is appealing because it would save us a TON of money. We are barely getting by and relying on student loans to pay monthly expenses. By moving into the other house we could get caught up and pay off some of our debt. The only negitave that is hindering me is its not in a great area. It's not the ghetto, but it's not a "leave you doors unlocked at night" neighborhood either. It's the historical part of town that's mixed with really nice restored homes and not so nice ones. It would be temporary, maybe 10 months to a year.
While it is very, very appealing idk if we should do it or not. It would allow getting caught up on bills and paying down some debt, but moving into a sometimes sketchy part of town scares me. WWYD?
