Hello there -
If you intend to live with your fiance after the commitment ceremony, then the change in living arrangements will affect your total household income and you will experience cuts in the amount of financial assistance that you receive from the state of RI == it is not the fact of whether you are married or not that matters here, It is the fact that you are experiencing an increase in your overall Total income being received by ALL members of the household. The only way around this is if your new husband experiences a sudden drop in his overall income and you report that drop to the State of RI.
While I realize that the information is not really something that you wanted to hear, I do hope that it helps overall so you can examine all of your options here for the situation. Please let me know if you have any further questions on this matter. If not, can you please press a positive rating above in the ratings section so I will be paid for my time assisting you today. I am paid NOTHING unless you press the middle star or the fourth or fifth star to the right of the middle star (they are the positive rating buttons). Pressing a positive rating will NOT cost you any more money -- it is simply the trigger used by Just Answer to pay me for my time on this question. THANK YOU VERY MUCH-
