Moving in together is a big step in a relationship. It’s so exciting to pick out decor for your space and finally stop packing a bag every other night to sleep at their place, but there’s a lot more to it than it may seem. Here are some things you should expect when you are moving in with your partner:
1. What’s Yours Is Theirs
With a roommate, there is still a general line between what is yours and what is theirs: food, space, clothes, etc. But with a partner, you both own everything. Yeah, you still may buy some things for yourself, but you share the entire space and all of its contents rather than splitting it in half. There is (probably) only one bedroom in the house, so there’s probably not a place that is all your own anymore.
