2. Living together is a whole new adventure


Even if you’ve dated for years, finding a balance that works for both of you takes some work. But once it’s working, it’s beautiful.

3. The scales will not be in your favour


You’re going to gain weight, however much you try. There are just so many invitations and you won’t be able to refuse any :(

4. You will discover cute new things about each other
