BF and I are getting a new apartment in August. Recently, he told me that his friend and co-worker of 3 years ("D") and D's girlfriend "K" are also looking for an apartment. He asked if it would be okay if he invited them to live with us, and we would split the cost of a 2-bedroom. I didn't really have a problem with it. It would definitely ease some financial burden and I like D and K a lot. We've all hung out together, have similar lifestyles. None of us are drinkers or partyers. Only the boys smoke and they're willing to go outside to do so. K and I are both neat freaks. D has shared a house with 3 other people before. We all cook. It seems like a pretty good set-up and all 4 of us are happy about it.
The thing is, a lot of people, when I tell them we're moving in with another couple, tell us it's a mistake. That hanging out with someone is different than living with them. Then what happens if one of us breaks up or if there's a fight, etc. Whenever someone strongly voices their opinion, I ask if they've lived with another couple before. They've all said no.
Has anyone else lived with another couple? Even if you didn't, does anyone have any advice or insight?
