There was no reason for Rudy and I to move in together, long ago. We just did. It wasn’t out of necessity. It was simply an opportunity. Rudy had a roommate. I lived at home. His roommate met a girl and moved in with her. Rudy didn’t need a roommate, nor did I need a new room. Yet, one day as we were walking around the apartment complex he was living in we simultaneously wondered, “Why not?”
By the following month, we had signed a rental agreement for a one bedroom, one bath apartment, top floor.
“Why?” my mom wondered.
“Why?” Rudy’s mom questioned.
“What’s the point?” my mom inquired.
“It doesn’t make sense,” Rudy’s mom stated.
It didn’t need to make sense, we both thought, to anyone but us. We just knew it was what we wanted to do. Live together, before marriage.
