Living with boyfriend problem

I live with my boyfriend. (I'm 23, college degree, teaching job with salary and benefits)

My parents don't know. I think they will disown me if they found out. It's Christmas and I'm all but consumed with the guilt of this. Neither of them has ever done anything wrong. They both waited until marriage, no skeletons in their closet in any way.

My boyfriend doesn't know they don't know. Things haven't been going well, and he will yell at me a lot if I told him. I'm planning on leaving him this summer (5 year relationship) if things don't improve.

I know I'm an adult, and this didn't bother me at all last year, but it's killing me to think I'm disappointing my family.

  • I'm sorry you're going through this. The only thing I can tell you is that everybody has done something wrong at some time. They may not want you to know about it, but they're not perfect. If they love you unconditionally like parents should then they will love you through this. They may be disappointed in you for making a poor decision, but they will still love you. Good luck.
