I was “shacking up” with my boyfriend for over two years. I always felt it wasn’t right, but I did it anyway. Then I found your book “Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives" and learned that I fell into a few of the categories. Even worse, I have a son. I couldn’t live with myself any longer in my shack-up situation, so I finally moved out. I ended up living in a home with several other people. It was tough being in a roommate situation, but I did sleep a lot better. I also broke up with my boyfriend for good and let him go.
Shortly after that, my ex-husband asked me to marry him again. After being divorced for eight years, he wanted to start fresh for our son and ourselves. We did not live together before we married again and did things the right way. I have never felt happier. The inner satisfaction I feel for doing things the right way has been a great cure for my insomnia. Nothing is softer than sleeping with a clean conscience.
I’m now a very happy homemaker and want everyone to know that you CAN get out of being stuck in a shack-up arrangement, but only if you want to.
