Once the wedding is over, do you think you’re ready for the happily ever after part? Moving in together can be tricky, but here are some tips that may help ease the transition.
Let’s Talk Money
Before you combine households make sure to discuss things like money matters and insurance. Discuss philosophies on money and details regarding how you want it to work in the short and long terms. Generally, each spouse should have some money that they can do what they like with which will help avoid some disagreements. Also, go over how health insurance will be handled and get a new will written that includes what medical measures you each want to be given.
About the Stuff
There is no doubt a great deal of excitement centered around moving all your furniture and treasures from your Tampa FL storage room to your sunny new home. This is a great opportunity to see how you each handle and deal with the stress and physical exertion of moving. Watch to see when the other needs a little encouragement and give a kind word. Talk through the style of the home and the expectations you each have regarding decorating and comfort. Each of you will need to give a little something up, but each should get to keep some favorite pieces too.
Be sure to sit down over a glass of something yummy and discuss your household pet peeves. You must be honest about how you think chores should be divided up, which privacy invasions will really bother you and a few other concerns like having company over and sleep schedules. Hearing each other out and agreeing up front about these matters will help keep a peaceful home.
Leaving Home Sweet Home
The two of you are now in a new stage of life as a couple. Early on you probably couldn’t get enough of each other, but now you are in a home together. This is the perfect time to be a little more generous with your time so, get out and reconnect with friends. Have drinks or dinner and great conversation. Getting out will keep things fun for you both!
Fill Your Home With Love
Above all don’t forget why you got married. Purposely do selfless things for one another regularly. After awhile leaving love notes or flowers will become second nature for you and will go a long way in keeping your marriage strong and thriving.
