You may have had roommates before. You may have shared a room with your siblings growing up. You may be an expert in the area of sharing space with others. But living with the person with whom you have sex (and would like to continue having sex with) is completely different. Your relationship with your significant other can’t handle the types of fights you and your sister used to have as kids, or you and your drunken roommate had in college. You need to take a little more care to prevent cohabitation-related fights with your significant other because keeping that bond intact is oh-so-important. So, beyond thinking about how you’ll live together, you should think about where you’ll live together. Here are apartment features that make living together so much easier.
Having plenty of storage space is key. You may not think you have a lot of stuff, but you do. Especially when there are two of you. Beware of apartment prices that seem too good to be true; there probably isn’t much storage space. It’s an easy thing not to notice when the countertops are brand new and the pool is so nice. But not having enough storage will cause weekly arguments.
