Growing up and even throughout college, I lived in a small, two-bedroom apartment with my family, where my sister and I shared a room, a closet and a bathroom. When I moved to DC to work and live on my own, I discovered the absolute freedom and joy that comes with having your own space. Since Stephen also shared a bathroom while growing up and while living with roommates during college, when we considered where we’d live together, having private bathrooms and closets were two big things that topped our lists.
Today, I absolutely love our two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, where we have the space to be together, yet still do certain things in our own way. Having separate closets and bathrooms is a big help when we both have to get ready to go out at the same time, and it entirely eliminates any spats about organization or cleaning up in these rooms. This way, we’re able to fully share a home and life, but in the way that works best for us.
Do you and your husband or fiancé share a bathroom or closet?
