Dr. Bonnie Encourages "Pre-Nups" For Couples Who Are Going To Be
It's easy for couples to just "ease" into living together without laying down any ground rules.

A cohab can be perfect for heterosexual or gay couples who are planning on living with each other long-term. Dr. Bonnie suggests each person come to the table prepared to discuss what the living arrangement looks like to them, and to also be flexible. "It's an especially good time for couples who maybe did ease into their living arrangement to delineate what's working and what isn't, and to make their decision more official." For couples that have made the decision to live together but aren't yet, Dr. Bonnie says the cohab is important for them too.

And each person should come with their own lawyer, she advises.
