Living together before marriage is controversial topic for some. While some are strongly opposed to the idea of moving in with a significant other before marriage, others think it’s a fundamental part of a relationship. For those of you who are seriously considering taking that next step in your relationship and moving in with your significant other, there are a few things to take into consideration.

While that may be true, don’t let that be the main reason you make the big move. You need to be sure that living together is something you’re ready for and a step that both of you are ready to take.

It’s okay to be nervous. It’s a big decision that needs to be thought through and if you’re not the least bit nervous about it, that may be a sign that you’re more interested in playing house than joining lives with another person.
