    Let's be real: It's 30% about the houses, 70% about all those insane couples.

    Like, a whole lot of room.

    2. Never date anyone who requires a "man cave."

    "SORRY, SWEETIE, YOU'VE SEEN HOW MANY SHOES I HAVE!!!"

    4. Or who understands literally nothing about the world.

    5. Learn to compromise.

    Oh, your husband wants a seven-bedroom, 12-bathroom helicopter mansion complete with a fondue-Jacuzzi and matching unicorn horn-encrusted appliances? That's cute.

    8. Avoid Mike.

    13. Beware of lascivious realtors.

    14. No. Foot skin.

    Who cares if nobody understands why you rented the $4000-a-month, seventh-floor, walk-up hovel next to the friendly neighborhood prison. Bitches don't know.

    16. But whatever choices you may make, do not let this be you.

    17. Know that this, above all else, is the ultimate deal breaker.
