Some attached (and broke) New Yorkers have gone to even more extreme lengths in order to cohabitate and save money: living with another couple. Because why divide the rent by two when you can divide by four?
Cohabitation is a process. It requires patience, commitment, and lots upon lots of communication.
You need to pare down — but how? Staring at your belongings, trying to pull decisions out of thin air, can easily lead to paralysis.
While we’ve made it the norm – just another step in a serious relationship — cohabitation is a very big deal.
$2,268 a year in storage costs could also go towards a romantic vacation for two, a year of subsidized therapy, a grill and enough meat for summer barbeques every Sunday, a lot of tango lessons or two new bikes—all things that could contribute to the growth of a strong relationship.
Don’t let food fights get in the way of your relationship.
