    Tips on finance/budgeting as an unmarried couple. My boyfriend and I have been living together for about two years and we still struggle financially because of his debt and I built up debt trying to keep the household going and provide for my kids and I hope to marry him someday but I won’t because of his debt and finances. Many advices say that when we marry, we combine our finances but we’re unmarried and living together so that is complicated. I rarely see articles on this topic.
