4 Things I HATED About Moving In Together

By Caroline Henry on Apr 2, 2019 9:34:03 AM

Hey there! I'm Caroline Henry, a newlywed (going on 3 weeks since the wedding, so I'm basically an expert, right?!) and an employee for The NewlyWed Box. This month's box is all about communication, and let me tell you... I KNOW the struggle. When you first move in together as a married couple, communicating is definitely not as simple as you'd think it'd be.

By The NewlyWed Box Team on Mar 14, 2019 11:34:10 AM

How do you communicate? Are you soft-spoken or loud? Do you tend to shy away from conflict or embrace it wholeheartedly? Has anybody ever described you as sarcastic? When you are angry, are you more likely to fly off the handle or wait until you are calm to address the issue?
