Should we move in? That is the question that becomes a major milestone in any relationship. When you are at that point of uncertainty, it’s crucial to make the right choice. In most cases, it’s not the question of “when,” it’s the matter of “reason.”
Unfortunately, no major psychological research can tell you the exact time needed to pass before a couple is ready to move in. 

For some people, it’s an almost instantaneous match and the right decision. For others, even a year is not enough for this major change.
Now, if you are considering moving in with your boyfriend but are not sure yet, this quick quiz is meant to clear some things for you.

Quiz With Boyfriend

This quiz is meant to evaluate your own readiness for the change of your living situation. However, it doesn’t mean that you alone are responsible for such a drastic decision. On the contrary, we urge your boyfriend to take this quiz as well! Either alongside you or after. You can compare your results to get a definite answer.
In any case, even if the result doesn’t suit your inner drives, the test as a whole gives you at least 20 topics to ponder about and discuss with your boyfriend. Some of the things are an obvious topic like a financial situation, others may be hidden milestones. It’s better to discuss it all now instead of keeping it until the better “living together” times.

Questions to Ask Before Moving in With The Boyfriend

Before setting in stone the decision, you should consider some major details about your relationship, your goals, and expectations for the future. You'll find many of them inside the quiz, but here are some of the most important questions.

  • How do you handle conflicts or disagreements? Discussing conflict resolution strategies can help you both navigate challenging situations more effectively.
  • What are your views on finances and financial planning? Discussing money matters can help you establish transparency and joint decision-making about finances.
  • What are your thoughts on marriage and children? This question is crucial if you're considering a long-term commitment. It’s never too soon to ask about the CURRENT view on family planning.
  • What are your expectations regarding privacy and personal space? Discussing boundaries is essential to ensure both partners feel respected and comfortable in the relationship.
  • How do you envision our life together in the future? This question allows you to explore your boyfriend's perspective on your shared future and helps identify potential areas of difficulties.
