  • Other people are unhappy about your decisions

Most parents want their children to walk down the aisle before sharing the same bed with their partners. It brings joy and honor to the family’s name.

If your parents don’t support your decision about you two living together, you might want to stop and listen. Sometimes our close circle can see things about our partner that we can’t due to being blinded by love.

  • You think it could solve your problems

Living under the same roof can’t solve your relationship problems. Just think about it. Why do couples living in the same roof for years divorce?

Moving will only intensify any anger, stress, and resentment you have. You need to identify what is really wrong in your relationship and come up with practical ways to solve those issues.
