I'm a newlywed.

Welcome to the board, Beachlover2010 ~
I wonder if part of this might be in the way you approach it with him?

I don't think I'd go for it at all. What about selling both of your previous family homes and getting a new house for a new start?
I plan to marry a woman who has a bigger house in a better neighborhood with neighbors she is close to.
Thank you all for your replies!!
Oh and BTW, I would love to sell both homes and start anew!!
And Mark, you said you will have your own "private room"?
