I'm moving to DC to take a 6 month internship at a think tank. My girlfriend is moving with me - we are looking to live in sin to figure out if we should get married. My internship is paid, but $12 an hour doesn't go very far. She's looking for jobs and internships.
While this does not compare at all to the plight of, for example, starving children in refugee camps in the Sudan, it is a financial risk for both of us - especially since I don't have a full time job lined up.
Do keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
