What if you meet Ms/Mr Right - and they already own their own place?

What if you meet Ms/Mr Right - and they live in some other state/country that you would love to move to?

IMO the main question of "rent vs buy" is - do I want to live in this condo/TH/House for the next 5-10 years ('cause who knows if you can sell or even rent it out at a profit)

And if you're hoping to meet and marry Ms/Mr Right in the next 2-3 years - not only would I NOT be looking to buy something where I had to get a roommate to afford - I would want to relish the time I have now to live single and turn the thermostat to what I want to, or clean the dishes when I want, or stare at an open 'fridge door without another adult making any comments about how I live.
