How to Move in with Your Boyfriend (and Not Break Up with Him)
Living in sin isn't what it used to be. Nowadays, shacking up is almost a rite of passage;couples are living together now more than ever. The question is, are they any good at it? Or will you be any good at it? Whether you're in a live-in relationship or about to be in one, Tiffany Current's How to Move In with Your Boyfriend (and Not Break Up with Him) aims to help you stay smart and happy along the road to live-in bliss.
Current successfully navigated the perils of her live-in relationship only to marry the man who provided fodder for her "how to" guidebook. But it wasn't "all that" from the start. Within weeks of moving in with him, she was ready to chuck his PlayStation out the window and hand his cat off to a stranger. After only a few short months, she was ready to end her relationship since they couldn't agree on anything. Whether discussing cleaning habits, house rules, or decorating tastes, everything turned into an argument. As a result, she realized three important success laws:
1. Communication. Communication is important in any live-in relationship. You need to constantly let each other know what is and isn't working in order for your live-in relationship to be a success.
2. Teamwork. In any live-in relationship, you need to be willing to work together and share in the responsibilities (in setting ground rules, handling chores, making decisions, dealing with relationship hardships, etc.). If you aren't making your relationship an equal partnership (or being a team player), then one person will always feel like they're getting the shorter end of the stick.
3. Compromise. If you want your live-in relationship to last, then you need to be able to compromise. Since this is a partnership, that means you can't always have things your way. You need to be willing to hear other options and come up with solutions that you both can agree on.
How to Move In with Your Boyfriend (and Not Break Up with Him) is packed with witty communication tips, quizzes, hilarious mock conversations and more, all designed to help you in your decision to shack up or make the most of the situation you're already in.

And what about your SEX life - will it change?
