Should I move in with her?
by John A. Roberts

Moving in with your girlfriend means there will be major adjustments the two of you will have to make. However, there are positive things that can come out of it. Moving in with your girlfriend is a good way to save money on rent, and you he easy access to intimacy. But you have to remember that you're not just sharing your personal space, you're sharing your lives. If you have doubts about moving in with your girlfriend, here are some tips that will help you make your decision.

Your relationship is going to change. From the moment you share your first night together, you'll notice a change in your relationship. The TV may put you to sleep every night, but she may hate sleeping with the TV on. That is an adjustment the two of you will have to make.

A change in your sex life. If you think every night will end with the two of you naked, think again. When you live apart, you make time for sex. When you live together, there's no sense of urgency to have sex. The solution is to find ways to be intimate without intercourse.

More work around the house. Dividing up the chores can be a big mistake. If you work 50 hours a week and the other works 25 hours a week, the person with more time on their hands should do more around the house.

Irritation. Sooner or later, you'll start discovering things about her that really annoy you. Solve this problem by telling her the problems you have, and try to compromise.

Marriage is not automatic. Just because you are living together, doesn't mean marriage is automatic. When you move in with her, that's sending her a signal that you want to settle down. If you aren't ready to settle down, tell her so she won't be heartbroken.

Learn how to get along. Moving in with your girlfriend takes allot of sacrifices. You can't have your friends over at all times of the night, you might have to clean up more than you used to, and you can't tell her to leave when you have an argument because she lives with you. Remember she is your girlfriend, and the reason why you moved in with her is because you love her. There are things she's not going to like about you, so take the good with the bad, and live happily ever after.
