The average American moves 12 times in a lifetime and most of the moves involve living with another person. Whether as a dorm mate, roommate, partner, spouse or step family, moving is more than logistics and practical concerns; it is an emotional and inter-personal process. merge2gether, a new online community, helps people make the most of their merge.
Whether deciding on big things like whether to buy or rent, or small things like whether to keep or purge an armchair, moving requires making many choices. When another person is involved in the process, life can get complicated.
"The inspiration to start merge2gether came about from watching an engaged couple debate, negotiate and struggle with decorating their new home. He had modern sensibilities, where hers ran shabby chic. Other than a professional therapist, which seemed liked overkill, the couple felt they lacked easily accessible resources to help them work out this difference. The goal of merge2gether is to get people thinking and talking about both practical and emotional issues before starting their apartment/house hunt." said Director of Marketing, Beverly Aabjerg.
Moving is more than packing boxes especially when making the move with someone else. merge2gether is a resource for information and inspiration, discussing topics such as: finding a new home, negotiating day-to-day lifestyle preferences and structuring joint financial responsibilities.
"I am excited about this new community because most of us have lived and learned from the experience of moving in and living with a dorm mate, room mate, partner/spouse, adult child or aging parent. The beauty of merge2gether is that content will come from the wisdom of the online community as well as staff," states Steve Hutnick, co-founder.
The merge2gether.com community offers people in all stages of life the resources to help them take this next step with confidence. merge2gether.com tools and tips get people thinking and talking before the first moving box is packed.
