Yes, provided: 1. You're sure you guys want to marry each other - this is no brainer but many people are so motivated by owning a house that they did not consider this well and end up forfeiting the house and deposit 2. Both of you have planned and decided on how the family is going to be like for at least the first 5 years - this will set up how much money you need, whether you can be financially stable to have a family. Many couples end up in divorce in the first few years due to financial issues. 3. Both of you have done a financial projection for the next 5 years - Apart from the downpayment required, you are expected to pay stamp duty etc and more importantly in the future, paying the mortgage. Doing a projection of how much money you have and whether you can afford the house (and related renovation costs), and which size of house.
