Tips for Moving in Together After St. Valentine

Whether you happen to have been recently hitched or you are embracing the idea of habitation, moving in with your loved one is a serious deal. The new chapter in your life will be something rife with happy moments and potential conflicts you will need to avoid. While there is no absolutely foolproof way of handling your mutual life together, following some tips ahead will give you a hand so you can make it happen with greater ease.

Maybe the most important is to have a talk on the following topics and to be prepared for all of it. However, there are some things you shoud consider, before moving in together with your loved one. You should find a new place to live (if you are not going to move into your parner's place), plan the relocation, hire a removal company, pack your belongings.

Setting up some basic ground rules

This would be a good time to figure out some simple rules that you will need to follow as time goes by, despite them being something nobody wants to talk about. The magic of being in love is a wonderful thing, but in time your emotions will crystallize and this will mean you will need to contend with each other’s strange and unusual habits and parts of your character. Whether this means keeping the toilet seat down, taking care of the laundry piles and so forth, cohabitation requires a great amount of getting used to a lot of details that could easily make or break a relationship. Keep that in mind when you deal with your shared boundaries and the need to change your habits or get used to each other’s quirks.

Mutual redecoration efforts

Whether you happen to be moving into the home of your loved one, vice versa or even moving into an entirely new place together, you will need to collaborate on the décor so you can figure out the details together. This type of approach will give each of you a chance to feel ownership of your new place. The home makeover will give you a chance to blend your styles together for something more suitable to both of you.

Dividing the housework

Chores are something we all want to avoid doing, but sadly they are inevitable for the most part and we need to handle them anyway. Although you may not be thrilled to take care of such tasks, chances are you will need to take care of this to move on to the actual enjoyment of your new home.

 

Taking on the finance side

Before you can move in together you would do well to take the money talk. You will have a chance to handle your expenses with either a joint account or another way of doing this. Your financial discussions will continue well into your relationship, so you will need to consider this as you move forward with your tasks.

 

Leaving your old home

Once you have finally decided moving house should be made a reality, you would often be tempted to catch up on shows, relax and unwind. Well that may seem like a good idea at first, but you should consider that it is essential to the health of your relationship to try new things together and to explore your options all the way. Having new experiences will be a great way to handle what is coming ahead.

 

Maintaining Privacy

The shared showers aside, most bathroom activities will of course need to be kept private. On the other hand moving to a new home will also mean you have to take care of a lot of things, but some of these will mean you have handle it alone, while others mean you will have need of professional help all the way.

Spending some time apart

Enjoy some quality time even without each other, as some amount of independence is necessary to make things work very well. If you have that time after you’re done moving house you will have a much better time spent together, making it much sweeter as time moves on.
