While it’s always exciting to move in together. Although it is a big and a strong step towards your relationship. It is very important to discuss a few things before making this extreme decision. Because you never know what will happen if things don’t go as planned.
1)Reason for moving in?
It is very important to discuss the reason before moving in. Is it to start saving money or to make your relationship official?
2)How serious are you both about the relationship?
It’s time you ask each other how serious you are about your relationship. Ask if you are ready to be committed towards each other and get married. As you have decided to share your address.
3)Where will you live?
It is important to know who is going to move in and where. Is it going to be a totally new house or moving into someone else’s house.
4)Who is going to manage all the finances and pay bills?
It’s highly important that you decide how much you are going to spend. Because expenses become the biggest concern because it’s always awkward to discuss money. Hence make sure things are clear from the very beginning.
5)Are you ready to stand for each other’s family?
When you decide to move in it’s obvious that your family would visit you. While one enjoys staying with family, others would not like it. So it is important you understand each other’s priorities beforehand to avoid future problems.
6)How would you deal with Arguments and Conflicts
Everyday is not about love and kisses. There are days when you have arguments and conflicts in life. When you start staying together it is important to discuss issues and solve them immediately rather than running away from each problem and creating big issues.
7)Do you like each other’s friends?
It’s awesome if you have mutual understanding about each other’s friends. But it becomes a problem if you dislike their friends and feel like running away as soon as they come. Make sure clear rules are set before moving in.
8)Discuss if he/she likes pets.
While both of you like each other that doesn’t mean you have everything in common. It is important that you discuss what your likes and dislikes are. So that it doesn’t become a problem when it comes to having a pet at home.
9)What happens if it doesn’t work out?
While you think it’s all about butterflies and rainbows. There is always a question about separation. What would you do if you decided to get separated. Plan beforehand about the things you own. So it will become easy in the future.
Moving in together might be exciting and glamorous only if you decide to be committed towards your common goal. But if things go on the highway. Journey becomes miserable and not beautiful. So make sure you decide everything before hand.
