Tips for moving in together

You have made the decision, asked the question and now you and your significant other are set to move in together.  Living with someone else is not always easy, but the good news is that there are a number of easy tips that you can follow to make the transition that much smoother.

One good tip is to make sure that you are both comfortable with the new living arrangements.  You both need to have a little space to yourselves in your new place, and it is a good idea to make joint decisions as to how your new home will be decorated after the move so that you will both feel comfortable living there.  If you find that you have duplicates of items such as kitchen appliances then the best tip is to donate one and retain whichever is nicest and cleanest.

It is also a good piece of advice not to start slacking on your responsibilities once the relocation is complete.  Do not just take things in your stride but plan how you intend to live together before you start doing so.  Chores should be split in advance and financial responsibilities shared.  You are now roommates as well as romantic partners.

Spending time apart is also a good idea.  Doing everything together can become a bit overwhelming on occasion, and there is nothing wrong with having some breathing space now and again; in fact, some time apart can help to make your time together all the sweeter.
