From spending Easter/Passover weekend together in Cabo to indulging in public PDA, on- and off-screen lovebirds Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are going strong. And they're so so cute! I adore all the little tidbits about their real-life romance leaking out in between weekly doses of Finchel on Glee. But the latest gave me pause, fellow Gleeks. Apparently, although all is well and good in Lory-land, it sounds like they may be in danger of going too far too fast (a la Katy Perry and Russell Brand or Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries -- noo!).
Perez Hilton talked to a source who claims that "Lea is telling everyone she's never felt more sure about anything. She's ready for it all, starting with living together and planning their future." Whoa! Well, awesome, right? As long as Cory's on the same page ... Unfortunately, it doesn't sound as though he is.
According to Perez's source:
[Cory]'d prefer to maintain the status quo in their relationship, but she wouldn't take no for an answer. He's sick of his roommate situation, so he's going along with it. Cory complains that Lea smothers him. Many friends worry that their relationship is doomed because she's so bossy and Cory is totally chill.
Aaacck! Sounds like a major RED FLAG! But just to play devil's advocate for a quick sec, I wouldn't be surprised if this "source" was just drawing conclusions based on Rachel Berry and Finn Hudson, as opposed to their real-life counterparts? Because that "bossy vs. chill" description sounds a bit too familiar.
Then again, who knows -- maybe life imitates art? And if that's the case, then they should probably slow it down, like Rachel and Finn recently did with getting married. Although they've worked together for a few years now, they've only technically been together since February. And while there's no real time frame in which it's wise to move forward with a relationship, living together isn't exactly a step to take lightly. After all, these days, it's practically the new getting married!
All I'm saying is that when any couple decides to co-habitate, it's imperative that they be on the same page about the why. It can't be out of convenience sake, because someone can't afford their rent anymore, or they hate their roommate. I reflected a lot on the topic when major surgery expedited my now-fiance's and my timeline for moving in together. I wanted to make sure it was something we both wanted and would have done either way.
As long as Lea and Cory are really seeing eye-to-eye on living together, more power to 'em. But if they're just sliding into shacking up instead of making a concerted decision to, their Glee-tastic love affair could be doomed.
What were your reasons for moving in with your partner? Do you agree it won't work out if you aren't truly on the same page?
