It's been a long time since I've lived with a partner. I was divorced in 2004. Ron and I are planning to move in together sometime around the middle of the year, once the renovations are complete on the master suite. Ron has lived on his own off and on, because he had children later in life and they didn't want to be with their Mom after the divorce so they lived with him, left home as adults and came back again at different times. Even so, it's his house and he's the parent and so he's called the shots.... it's not the same as living with a partner. We are both tidy, fastidious people. But we're both used to running the show in every respect. He keeps a very clean house. Does his own laundry, changes his sheets every week, cooks a lot and is good at it, is careful about where things are stored in the kitchen, folds his clothes and towels just so. I do all of that too, in my own way, and some of our ways match, and some are different. We've talked in general about when we move in together having to learn each others ways, that there will be an adjustment period as we get comfortable with how the other person does things etc. Looking for input on how you've apportioned the chores, family stuff, household duties, and why you've done it that way. Even if you've lived with your partner a long time, I would imagine that things evolved when you retired because that obviously changes the dynamic in the home. Would love any advice on how best to navigate the adjustment of two people living together who haven't lived with anyone for 15 years!!!
