Moving in together is a big step!聽To decide whether or not you are ready to move in with your significant other, you have to聽consider all of the implications.

Consider the following five聽factors when making聽your decision:

#1. Finances

When you聽decide to move in with your partner, oftentimes, money becomes intertwined in some situations.

Question: Can you handle organizing, saving, sharing and investing money with your partner鈥攊n a way that serves both of your interests?

#2. Living Conditions

If you’re a neat freak and your partner is a slob, chances are, cohabitating may be difficult! Assess your preferences when it comes to lifestyles before you take the plunge.

Question: How compatible are you with your partner when it comes to living preferences?


You may think you have a lot in common with your partner, but moving in together can test these shared interests. Ask yourself:

Am I聽happier since I met my聽partner?
Am I able to be myself?
Am I OK with my partner’s聽quirks, habits, family and friends?
Is my partner OK with my quirks, habits, family and friends?
Do we have聽similar tastes, views, life goals, opinions?
Do we聽communicate well?
Do we聽trust each other?
Do聽I聽really know my聽partner?

#4. Teamwork
Teamwork is crucial to any relationship, but particularly when you’re living together.聽Do you work well together toward a unified goal? If so, you’ll be snuggling on the coach together after a long house-cleaning session in no time!

Question: Are you a good team?
