I have a really strange situation. I thought i might ask here because no one i know lurks here.

I've been dating my boyfriend for almost 2 years now. It's pretty much a roller-coaster at the moment. My mother tried to kill herself, so i moved into his house (i am 17, he is 19) with his mother, father, and younger brother. I moved in because of issues with school, money, and transportation.(convienent, family discord right before my senior year starts...) I live in a weird area, country-like, there are no sidewalks or buses or anything like that. I have a job, and i'm currently in driver's ed (i didn't start at 15 because of car phobia). My boyfriend however, is 19, doesn't have his liscence, and still doesn't clean his room; we work at the same place and make the same amount of money per hour; he doesn't clean, doesn't take care of himself... but i can't let go of him because he's been with me for so much. But is this love?

You have several issues colliding, which makes everything more complicated,... I suggest you address them separately and maybe you'll find them more manageable.

The first point is that you absolutely must get out of where you are living now, and become more autonomous. Probably having a driving license won't be enough, you need to find your own accommodation. You should probably contact the local social services to get to know what possibilities are available to you, in terms of accommodation and funding.
