The wonderful romance unleashed by moving in together was a common theme and one woman said: "There was definitely a lot of love puppy.

Another wrote: & # 39; It was quite surprising. It was as if we were both competing to be the best roommate. I cooked things, cleaned extra things, did homework, and curled up for years. We realized as we went along and never had any problems.
"When the novelty dissipated, we simply settled into a rhythm, but we still did and do all the good things for each other."
However, some women were less enthusiastic when sharing their experiences of living with their partner.

Another said: "We moved to his parents' house in April after the meeting in [January]. He moved into our own apartment in July. Great.
"Today they shouted at me for not talking seriously and helping her when she hurt her back (I was asleep when she yelled at 8 a.m.) and I helped her go to the bathroom.
"Then, when I came back from taking the dogs out, they yelled at me not to apologize for not being serious enough while I'm half asleep.
& # 39; They told me to leave. Currently sitting in a cafeteria to get space and time to cool off. I hope I do not have to go back to my parents' house tonight.

This woman said: "The first time we moved together was at their parents' house in January of this year, we lived at one end of the house, they lived at the other.
"I did not get along with his parents, there was a lot of stress and fights with his parents, basically, he did not clean enough, he cooked enough, he worked hard enough, etc.
"I have put up with this bull for eight months." Finally, I gave him an ultimatum, or we go together, or I go alone.
These women shared how strong their relationships were after they finally settled down living with their partners. Many of the women admitted that living with their partners became easier over time
"After a lot of searching for something that we could pay, now we have lived together in our apartment for a month, our relationship has improved tremendously.

"I love him very much, but I was not going to fight against his parents for his love."
Another added: "Sometimes you can not live with some people. My husband and I lived with their parents for about eight months when we moved to our city, and we could not get along.
"My husband was always in the middle, as soon as we moved in, I get along much better with his parents."
