1. You’re using it as a way to gauge your relationship’s strength. Moving in together shouldn’t be a litmus test for whether your relationship is on sound foundation. It should be a decision made in full faith that you’re already on solid footing as a couple and totally excited for the next step.
2. You’ve yet to have your first big argument. Sorry, couples of a mere three months: It may seem romantic, but it’s probably ill advised to move in together. Why? It’s very likely you haven’t yet had the kind of serious arguments that really test a relationship.
3. You haven’t talked about money. If you avoid conversations about money, you might end up arguing about money. And couples who argue about finances early on are at a greater risk for divorce, regardless of their income, debt or net worth.
4. There’s another roommate involved and they’re uneasy about the move-in. You may love the idea of cohabitation and feel like your relationship is ready for it, but if others under the same roof don’t agree, you could be entering into a miserable arrangement for everyone.
5. You see it as a Band-Aid for problems in your relationship. Moving in isn’t a fix-all for existing problems between a couple. If you’ve experienced a relationship crisis ― an affair, for instance, or some other lapse of trust in the relationship ― what you may need now is some space, not shared living quarters.
6. You feel like your partner is pressuring you into the move. If you’re apprehensive about it and need constant reassurance from your partner that this it’s going to work out in the end, you may want to go with your instincts. http://bit.ly/2oEhuV3
