Deciding whether to live together or apart is a big decision for a blended family. Some blended families need to try it both ways to decide which works best for them. In this episode I outline ten things to consider when making this important decision. Plus I’ll list some pros and cons of both.


  1. The length of your relationship
  2. The quality of your relationship
  3. The ages of your kids
  4. The relationship between the stepkids
  5. How well do you and your partner co parent
  6. How do the kids feel about the situation
  7. What is your value on a stress free and peaceful life
  8. What is the difference in expenses from one home to two
  9. Shared care of living together opposed to caring for children alone
  10. What is your ideal family vision
