Hey guys! Welcome back. I think when it comes to relationships we all have different opinions and expectations. And not everyone is okay with that. Some people have the idea that we should all think and behave a certain way. Especially when it comes to romantic relationships. However, what’s important to remember is that you relationship and how it progresses is up to you and your partner. Not the standards that society has set and how others see it.
The truth is, if you move in one month after you start seeing each other or it takes six years, it doesn’t matter. People and relationships move at different speeds. There is nothing wrong with how or when you do it, as long as it’s what both of you want. You shouldn’t let people say things like, “you’ve been together so long, you should be living together” or “you should really wait until you are married to live together”. That’s not anyone else’s decision. Don’t let other’s opinions influence this critical, life-changing decision. Just be open and honest with one another.
You’re always going to be nervous. And there is no shame in going to others and seeking advice. But it is ultimately your decision. It is a scary thought. You are taking on a big commitment and it might not work out. But you have to take that leap of faith and trust yourself and your partner. Nothing is scarier than sharing a space with someone if you don’t know if it will work out. But you shouldn’t let that keep you from trying..
Living together isn’t a substitution for marriage. However, you don’t need to be married to live together, especially if you’re not sure if it will work out. If you already spend a great deal of time together and spend the night regularly it may be time to just close the deal. You will always be scared. It’s natural and means that you understand how big of a commitment this is. But if it’s right, you will know it and you will feel it. So just do it.
That’s all I have for this one. Thank you so much for reading. Let me know what else you would like to see. Please like this if you enjoyed it. Don’t forget to follow before you will leave and I will see you next time!
