Mortgage - unmarried couple
My boyfriend and I have spoken about marriage in the future, but have not gotten engaged. We are looking into purchasing a home, but he says due to my recent student loans and what not he does not want to get a mortgage in both our names. I am planning on paying 1/2 the bills and 1/2 the mortgage, but he is paying most of the down-payment. My concern is, if we do not get married and end up breaking-up is there a way to protect my investment? I'm afraid of purchasing a home for this reason. He says my credit isn't good enough yet and I owe too much to student loans. I'm not sure what to think or do at this point. Please help.
