Moving in together is a financial commitment, and so is marriage, so it’s important to consider the tough issues you’ll face as a cohabiting or married couple when you choose to take that step.

1. What is your definition of commitment?

You and your partner define your relationship. Know what your relationship means to each of you, to avoid repeating past mistakes, getting stuck in uncomfortable roles, or fighting about what your commitment is.Talk about what you mean by relationship, commitment, love, and faithfulness.

Money is a big generator of problems, arguments, and resentment in serious relationships. Don’t assume money should be pooled. For many couples, separating the money makes things run smoother; you don’t wind up struggling for control of who pays or whose income determines your lifestyle. Different financial habits (one likes to save, the other spends more, or doesn’t keep track) can generate fights. Whether you split costs evenly or on a percentage basis, learn to talk about money in a businesslike manner.
