Shacking and Stacking


Before I met my boyfriend  I was totally against living with a man. Matter of fact the thought never crossed my mind. sure I had friends that were living with their boyfriend, even had kids together.

Not to mention my church roots I was raised up in the church, and you know that it is frowned upon to be shacking up they call it "living in sin".

And while I realized that shacking is not for everyone I do believe there are benefits to living together. let me explain: If you decide to shack with your significant other then here are 4 things you need to discuss:

1.)How are the household chores going to be divided ?

This is not the 1950's so the tradition roles of the women doing all the household obligations have changed since women have entered the workforce. it should be divide equally among both of you.

  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Laundry
  • Grocery shopping
  • Childcare

2.)How will you split the bills?

  • Water
  • Gas
  • Electric
  • Car insurance
  • Savings
  • Insurance
  • Telephone (Cellphone)
3.)Does your significant other have children? how old are they? Will they live with you at some point ? Do you have them for weekends,holidays and during school breaks?

4.)How is your significant other relationship with their baby mother or father? Is it cordial or drama

These are something you should think about before you move in together.
