Great post with tips for couples planning cohabitation

couple moving in for cohabitation

Our friends at ClosetBox just posted a great piece with 8 expert tips for couples thinking of living together.  The author, Brittany Anas, was kind enough to include my expert tip, which was to be sure and have a cohabitation agreement.  At least in California, the family code does nothing for non-married partners.  When there is a break-up, couples are treated like business partners in a civil dispute.  A cohabitation agreement goes a long way to help define expectations before moving in together.  That way,  if things don’t work out, there’s a plan.  It’s easy to prepare and can save a lot of heartache down the road.

Other tips for the ideal cohabitation included having a discussion prior to moving in, taking inventory of the stuff, choosing a theme for decor, creating personal space and splurging on the king-size mattress.  Thanks to ClosetBox and Brittany for a great post.
