When two adults with fully furnished households decide to merge, what will happen to all their stuff? Get extra storage space or relegate one spouse’s boxed stuff to an unused bedroom?
Sell the excess stuff, place grandma’s vintage furniture throughout the “new” house, fight about what stays and what goes, negotiate, toss ugly shoes, stack mattresses, inundate the beds with all the extra pillows, fight some more…
We’ll probably open a business so we’ll have somewhere to put all the extra furniture and accoutrements!
(Oh, I should also mention that now we have a lifetime supply of various sunscreens and soap.)
