With many people choosing to get married later in life, it has become commonplace for marriage to symbolize more than uniting your future lives together; it is also typically the literal merger and combination of two households, furniture and all.
If you and your future spouse both live on your own – i.e. not together and not still with your respective parents – the odds are that you also both own furniture. Your existing furnishings may fill a room, an apartment, or a large home. And those furnishings are likely of some value to you, whether monetarily, functionally, and/or emotionally.
The problem? Your betrothed is in a similar furniture ownership position.
You may find yourself in the fortunate state of having the exact same taste and style in your décor preferences. If that is the case, you need only decide which pieces fill the various spaces in your new home.
