Making large purchases
Do not make a large purchase for your new shared home without first consulting your partner. How would you like to come home to a big screen TV where you had always dreamed of putting a fireplace? Or how about a brand new puppy! A hot tub smack in the middle of where you’d planned your rose garden. The moment one person makes a large purchase without consulting the other the other person immediately feels less that this is their home. They begin to feel more like a guest.
