Tenant Romance Drama

This summer I got a call from a concerned girlfriend/fiancee that was trying to find a place for her boyfriend in Provo. Her one constraint was that the contract term only be one semester - they were getting married in December, after all.

The next day I got a call from the guy. His attitude was not the same. She had seemed so focused on the marriage. It was the only option. The first thing that he said, when he called, was "Can I extend my contract?"

Sure enough, a few weeks after moving in, they broke up and he wanted to extend his contract for another semester. I'm amazed at the miscommunication in this relationship. My best guess was that it was a long-distance relationship that turned bad once it became close.
