9 things all couples will quickly learn when living together

So you're in love and you've spoken about moving in together. Congratulations - but I'm sorry to tell you that it's not going to be a walk in the park. Nope, coexisting is hard work, and there are certain things you'll start learning the moment you put down those moving boxes.

Perhaps the most important thing you need to know is that, no matter how much you adore the other person, you're still sure to drive each other completely crazy. So yeah, anyway - good luck with all that. I'm going to go feel smug about being single now.

Good luck out there, couples! If you're lucky, you might even find a hilariously sassy note from a previous homeowner while you're at it.
