This is understandable, but instead of resorting to renting a lovely home, a smarter approach would be to lease a home that does not cost you as much but is still nice and habitable. During this time, with the extra money you'll save, you will be able to save a good amount of money to be able to move out quicker and move into a house that you can truly call your home.
