There’s a big difference between how two people define “home.” Make sure to have a good conversation about what that means to each person. For example, do you watch TV at dinner, go to sleep later, or leave clothes on the floor. All the little pet peeves that can start a fight later should be discussed before the actual move in date. It’ll make both your lives a lot more enjoyable :)

#2 Plan Real Time Together

Don’t confuse proximity with spending quality time with your significant other. It’s a good idea to set aside some time every couple of weeks and go on a nice date or fun adventure.

Ya gotta keep the spark alive if you know what I mean.

#3 Talk About Next Steps

This might be the most serious tip on the list.

Going in to the situation with clear expectations can save one another a lot of headache and heartache. If a proposal is the next step in the relationship make sure that you are aware of your partners expectations. Nothing worse than going 4 years with no proposal when your partner thought it would only take 8 months. Communication is key!

#4 Take Inventory of Your Furniture

More than likely you’ll have too much stuff to combine both people’s furniture and other items into one coherent and functional space. After you’ve taken inventory, decide which items to keep and put the other items in storage.

#6 Divide Up Chores

This is a pain but can be a source of lot of bickering if not properly addressed.

It’s a good idea to make a chore list (I know that sounds lame) or at least discuss who takes care of what. No one wants 7 day old dirty dishes in the sink with no one willing to do it.

#7 Reorganize Closets and Figure Out Where You Would Both Like to Keep Things
