My husband and I got married not too long ago (with great help from Offbeat Bride, might I add). We were in a long-distance relationship before the wedding, and that’s not showing signs of ending any time soon. We visit each other every weekend.
It so happens that one of our long-time friends, also from our home town, found a part-time job in the city I work in, and we’ve decided to share a flat. My future roommate is an experienced flat-sharer while I am not. I am constantly thinking we need to regulate things and make them rock solid. I am hoping so much for us both to gain from this, and consistently worry I might be overdoing it and stepping on her toes…
Offbeat Homies, my questions are many:
- Any advice on how to make this two-to-three person household a success?
- Any home-sharing lifehacks?
- How do you make roommates feel comfortable and appreciated?
- How do you organize things?
Thank you! -uwrugbybunny
We know we have all kinds of non-traditional marital living situations — living apart together, living together part-time, married student housing — but what happens when you combine them with roommates?
Any advice, Homies who’ve added roommates to their relationships?
