A Home-Buying Journey Turns into a Relationship Test: Who's Right, Who's Wrong? 🏡💔

Our 29-year-old protagonist's journey from city life back to her small-town roots takes a dramatic turn when she decides to buy a house. As she battles the harsh realities of a terrible buyer's market, she finds a house she adores but can't afford. Her father steps in, generously offering to help with the down payment. But the plot thickens when her boyfriend, still in the city, insists on having his name on the mortgage, despite not contributing to the down payment. He also voices concerns about moving to an area they might not like. Is he being controlling or just cautious? And why can't he wait until they're married to be on the mortgage? The internet has some thoughts on this...🍿👀
