I agree with NothingFazesHer. You did nothing wrong wanting to protect yourself. I also lived with someone and was engaged to him and we ended up breaking up. I am exactly 32 now as well, but we broke up a few years ago. Anyway, from what I've learned, I wouldn't want to buy a house with anyone other than my husband. It's just not worth it for me. Not even with a fiance. In fact, I probably wouldn't even live together before marriage either. It doesn't help anything. I know someone who had three very long term relationships and lived together for a few years with each boyfriend. She's now almost 40, still technically single, no children, living with someone she's engaged to for the past four years. They bought a house together but still don't have a wedding date. Engagement doesn't mean anything anymore. I don't even care about being engaged; I don't want it in fact. And the man you were planning to marry sure doesn't sound like someone who would make a very good life partner. He seems to be thinking only of himself. 32 is not too old at all, especially if you don't have children. You are now in the prime age for marriage, so don't waste it on someone who's not right for you. Look for someone who wants to be in a committed relationship and who is loving and understanding. I realized life is too short for dealing with BS. You won't believe how many men, especially younger men, like women in their 30s, because we are more real and know what we want, while still being young and looking good. Not to mention we are more sophisticated than before, and that's a turn on for a guy. If this guy is not who you want to spend the rest of your life with, don't waste another precious moment and don't feel guilty. I am now starting my life completely over, including going back for my masters degree, and so far, it's great. Sure, I have a lot of doubts sometimes, but I also have faith that it will all work out for the best. Being married to the wrong guy is the worst thing that can happen. I've seen it and it ain't pretty.
