Being in a relationship is a wonderful experience but at the same time, you will know that it is also rather expensive because the two people involved in the relationship will often go out to dinners and other money spending activities in an effort to see each other and these constant dates can cost quite a bit of money. Therefore, if you are in a serious, committed relationship with your partner, it might be a good idea for you to consider moving in together as this would solve many things and save you a lot of money in the process. On the one hand, you will not need to spend a lot of money on dates and dinners in order to see each other every few days because you will be living together and you will see each other every day and on the other hand, you will also not have to pay rent twice as you both can now split the rent for one place which can be a great benefit of moving in together. However, there are also many negatives sides to moving in together and it is important that you consider all of these when you make the decision to move in together.
Finances involved with getting a new place
You will have to consider the finances involved with getting a new place. You will have to pay a down payment as the key money for the new place that you are renting out which you will need to split and you will also have many additional expenses such as Sydney strata services, utility bills and other such expenses to think about. However, overall, it will still be a lot cheaper than you have both collectively been paying all along and this means money will be saved on the long run.
You will need to decide on which one of you will pick up which utility bill and which one of you will be paying for strata for a complete satisfaction and so on. This would be some of the first decisions that you will need to make together a couple. It is important for you to keep in mind that both of you have very different personalities, habits, traditions etc and these will become a lot more prominent after you move in together and this can in some cases cause problems in your relationships. In fact, moving in together would be one of the best challenges that you take on as a couple and this experience will help to determine if you are ready for marriage and settling down together for the long run.
