9. You have to tell him what needs to get done, he’s not going to read your mind.
If you want something done around the house, you’re going to have to learn to speak up and mention it. Sometimes our SOs do things a little differently, have different priorities – and that’s okay. Just make sure you’re communicating your needs for comfortable living, and keeping in mind your SOs preferences, as well. If you want things to be done fairly, you have to ask. You can’t expect them to clean the kitchen and do the dishes without you saying so – no man is perfect.
10. Going grocery shopping together will be a constant fight.
Let’s face it, he just doesn’t get your cravings sometimes and leaving him to do the shopping on his own may leave something to be desired. Going together makes sure both of you have input and are fully aware of what you’re purchasing. That’s right, you’ll get those 2 pints of Ben and Jerry’s because you know he only would’ve gotten one. But, beware the epic “supermarket fight” that will probably occur. You both have different preferences in snacks and meals – and you’re on a limited budget. You know how this equation is going to turn out.
