I have had very little experience with the Bahá'i faith, even after being with my partner for two years. In the last two years, my partner and I have not followed the vows of chastity and his mother has allowed this within her home, even allowing us to share a bed a few nights a week. However, now that he has moved out of her home she has stared pestering him about whether, or not we're living together. He tells her that we're not living together, and we're not, but every time it comes up she tells him that we better not be or he'll lose his "rights"; which he obviously doesn’t want to happen. We've both seen these words as confusing since she has been aware of what has been going on in her home and as threats to him continuing to participate in religious practices. This is causing tension between him and his mother; I've chosen to ignore the situation as best I can without deserting my partner during this time. I'm curious as to how living with someone is worse than what we've been doing AND I would like to know where I can find out more about these "rights" as I have been searching the internet and haven't been about to find anything. Thank you in advance for any help.
