Sometimes it's unbearable. Other times it's just the best.

1. You don't have sex all the time.

In fact, the arousal fades sooner than you think. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

There are just some things that you simply can't do with someone else around.

3. You learn to put up with someone else's odors when you're in the bathroom.

And resign yourself to the idea that they're going to smell yours.

4. You're going to gain weight fast.

It'll start to become easier to order pizza, or tacos, or take-out than to cook and clean up for two people.

5. After a fight, things are extremely awkward.

When your joking with your girl and somehow an old argument gets brought up

You won't know where in the house to go to cool off, and if you leave, it's always tough to tell when it's okay to come back.

6. When it comes to decorating, prepare to make a lot of compromises.

For instance, if you hate the holidays and your partner loves them, be prepared to have a big, lit-up, colorful tree in your house at some point.

7. Sometimes you'll run into people you don't like in your own living room.

Oh well, it's his/her home too. You can't kick them out.

8. Your partner's habits will become yours.

If you or your partner leave clothes laying around, for example, you'll get mad at first, but chances are you'll be doing it as well later eventually. Isn't love great?

9. Cleaning will always be an issue.

Deciding who cleans the dishes, sweeps the floor, folds the laundry, among other things, will be headache-inducing.

10. If you come home drunk, you're going to wake your partner up.

Snoring, taking over the bed, pulling all the blankets off... no matter how stealthy you try to be, you're the total opposite.

11. Oh, and the music...

If you like reggaetón and your partner doesn't, they will likely ask you to change it. And then later, you'll have to suffer through their death metal.

12. You can be certain that you'll sleep warm from now on, and who doesn't love spooning?

Having someone in bed with you is great during cold season. During the warm months? Less great.

Your wallet will thank you.

14. Every time you get sick, there's someone there to pamper you.

But be prepared to do the same when you inevitably get them sick.

15. You'll stop caring if your partner sees you looking all scruffy.

It's not like when you first met, and you had to look stunning at all times. You'll eventually be comfortable enough with one another to walk around in pajamas and underwear.

16. Your wardrobe will expand.

Especially if you and your partner happen to be the same size.

17. You'll have someone to split pet duties with.

If you came into the relationship with a pet, now it's not your sole responsibility to feed and walk and care for it.

18. But the best part is, you get to share your space with the person you love. ❤️️
