If you’re in a committed relationship and you love being together, then you and your partner may be considering taking that next step and moving into a new home. Moving in with the one you love can be one of the most exciting moments in your life. However, with the rate of infidelity today, many couples shy away from making that type of commitment, especially if they come from a broken home themselves.
If you’ve been in a relationship where your partner cheated, then you might be scared of the infidelity being repeated and unsure of how to trust again after infidelity has already knocked you for a loop one time. The trick is to realize that not every partner will be a cheater and that infidelity doesn’t have to be a rule. In other words, not every partner or spouse cheats. If you’re concerned about moving in with your partner, read on below for a few signs that you might be more ready to move on from a prior betrayal than you may think.
It feels like the natural next step.
One of the biggest signs that it’s time to move in together is it feels like the logical next step in your relationship. You’re not just doing it to help with bills, to pay the rent, or because you’ve talked to a real estate agent about selling your own house and need a new home. It’s never a good idea to move in with a spouse or partner just because you need help with your bills.
If you do decide that moving in together is the best way to go, then you’ll want to sell your home as fast as you can, of course. There are 5 steps to selling a house fast that you might want to look into to help you get rid of the clutter, up the curb appeal of the home, and encourage potential buyers to make an offer.
Even if you’re in a new relationship, if you’re already spending all of your nights together, then it’s a pretty safe bet that you can tell your real estate agent to set up that open house so your home will sell quickly and you can start your life as a couple together in your new home.
You’ve talked about the future at length.
You’ve sat down and discussed your future together more than once. For example, not only have you talked about whether you want kids or not, or how many you want if you do, you’ve also discussed where you want to live. If you’ve been talking about getting a real estate agent to purchase a home or even talking to a builder about the building process so you can start fresh in a new home together, then you might be ready to take your partnership to the next level.
If you each know what to consider before building a house and agree on what that is, then you’re a step ahead of many couples trying to make the same decision you are. Any reputable contractor or builder will tell you that working together on the building process is the only way to agree when building your own home. If you’ve talked about the hard issues, then you’re ready to move in together and start on your new life as a couple.
You’ve talked about logistics.
Do you enjoy having people over for parties on the weekends? Does your partner prefer quiet evenings? Is your partner okay with splitting the bills? These are a few questions that you need to ask and get settled before moving in together. If you’re a partier and your significant other would rather curl up on the couch and read a book in the evenings, then you could have a problem. While opposites might attract, some things can’t be overcome.
These are just a few of the signs that you and your partner are ready to move in together. Moving in together is a big step and shouldn’t be taken lightly, so take your time and make the best decision for both of you.
