Are you on the fast track to moving in with each other? It may be time to slam on the brakes, at least until you have worked through these 15 important things all couples should do before shacking up.
1. Figure out at least one reason you are going to move in together besides finances and convenience. You do have another reason, right?
2. Save enough money for 3 months rent, both of you. (This is your security fun in case things go horribly wrong.)
3. Decide how you plan to split the rent or mortgage. Write it on paper, sign it, and put it away.
4. Know each others financial situation in detail. You do not want big financial surprises to blast your relationship to pieces.
