Moving in Together – What About the Money?

By Katherine Hann

Moving in Together - What About the Money?

So you and your partner have decided to take that next step in your relationship and move in together. 

I’m sure you’ve had your fill of advice from family and friends (and of course the internet) on the do’s and don’ts when getting settled in together.

From this time on, it is important to look at your relationship from an emotional perspective AND a
financial perspective.

Money issues are often a cause of separation for couples. It is important to communicate early and figure out what works best for both of you.

Instead of simply telling you what to do, I’d like to share some examples of how couples have effectively shared their expenses.

Have a look through the link here and think about what approaches you can take.

Do you agree with these, or are there any other ideas you might have? What did you do when you first moved in with your significant other? I’d love to hear from you.
