After living together for a long time, it can just happen: you become more like roommates than romantic partners. Your home is where you orchestrate your life, including the mundane stuff like paying bills, organizing toiletries, wiping down shelves, and sorting through the mail. Even the most loving of couples, after years of handling those mundane things together, can start to treat their relationship as mundane. But it’s so important to remember that the point of your relationship is not to run a tight ship around your house and be so tidy that Marie Kondo would be proud of you. If you achieve that, that’s wonderful—it makes a backdrop worthy of your love. But if achieving those things eclipses your bond, then you risk moving into this territory. Here are signs you’ve become more roommates than lovers.
You don’t greet each other
When your partner gets home, you don’t greet him. You don’t get up to hug and kiss him. You don’t even say an excited, “Hi!” across the home. You continue to do whatever you were in the middle of doing and give a brief acknowledgment.
