It’s amazing how many couples just jump into living together, without talking about all the major changes that brings along. It’s so important to feel happy, comfortable, and at-ease in your home. But what if the things that make you feel those ways don’t make your partner feel those ways? Or visa versa? Think about your current, separate homes. There are likely habits of your partner’s that aren’t for you. You never said much because he had his space, and you had yours. You have to say something now, or you can quietly live miserably until you inevitably break up. It all has to be on the table before moving in with your partner. And the more you see eye to eye on things, the more likely your relationship will succeed. Here are things you should be on the same page about before moving in together.
