Making the decision to move in together will always be a big one – and you might well be surprised that co-habitation can actually facilitate the breakdown of a relationship a lot quicker than if you’d just stayed in your own homes!
But, according to relationship therapist Christine Northam, you can move in together successfully and stay together at the same time! She told the Independent that it’s important to think about why you want to move in with your partner as doing so could be a sign of commitment that you’re actually not ready to make. So think about whether it’s desire or circumstances driving the decision.
“For some couples, an opportunity comes up to move in together and one is dead keen while the other us unsure. You both need to want to do it. It is best to have some kind of rationale as to why you are doing it. There is a financial aspect as well as an emotional aspect,” she said.
To prepare yourselves for moving in, make sure you talk about it first and that you’re both actually ready for this step. Discuss your finances so you know there are no secrets and that there won’t be any problems with bills, mortgages and so on later down the line. You might also want to get a second opinion from a close friend or relative to see if they think it’s a good idea. They might also have a few words of wisdom for you.
