The Reality About Living Together


A lot of couples imagine that living together will allow them to have non-stop sex and just combine in a way that will bring them closer and have them happier than ever before. While living together can be a lot of fun and a really remarkable experience, it is not what most people think it will be.

Many people start thinking that nothing will change in their home except for the number of electronics and having another person living with them. This is rarely the case. Women can expect women to balk at the framed pictures of flowers and men should expect that their pictures of swimsuit models will be relegated to the garage. The space will change; this is just the reality of having two people living in the space.

Many men and women believe that they will continue to do things the way they always have, such as spending every night with friends, not coming home if they don’t feel like it, and bringing other people home. This will need to change if you are going to live with one another simply out of respect. It’s not that you can’t still have friends and still have fun; you’ll just need to change it around a bit to accommodate the other person living in your home.

A lot of people think that now that they have moved their boyfriend or girlfriend into the home that it will be clean all the time. In fact, this is a thought that a lot of men have. Think again! When you move someone into your home with you, you will be expected to share the household chores and you’ll find that there is a lot of discord if you don’t keep up with your end of the bargain!

Quite a few men and women have the vision of having sex everywhere in the house any time they feel like it when they move into together. While this is a nice fantasy and it may be true for the first few days that you live together, it generally will not be true. You may have more sex, but it’s not going to happen simply because you want it to and the longer you live together the less spontaneous it will likely be.

Think if things don’t work out that it’s not a big deal, that you can just move out? It’s never this easy and in some states if you live together for even two years all of your possessions will be divided equally between you. Moving out is also not easy emotionally, so you shouldn’t assume that you can just move out and be done with it.

As you can see, there are a lot of things to think about before moving in together. Many people think that it can be a simple thing to get out of, but it rarely is. Living together takes work, if you are committed to making it work it can be a lovely experience, but if you think living together is just going to make your life easier and more fun, think again.
