Moving away from home, leaving family and friends to start a new career and live with a partner.

There comes a time in nearly every young adult’s life when they want to move out of the family home they have lived in for the past twenty years or so, with their parents and siblings to start a new life of their own.  They have met the person they may want to spend the rest of their lives with, and they are emotionally ready to commit to a long-term relationship. Setting up a new home far away from the support network of family and friends can be emotionally difficult, add in the stress of starting a new position in a strange company with older people that they don’t know and that can take its toll on many a young person. Before your child makes this most life-changing move make sure you talk to them about keeping in touch on a regular basis, so that you know they are safe and happy. Clarify any worries and concerns you might have about their health, both mentally and physically. Supply them with useful contact information for local doctors, hospitals and dentists alongside making sure they know where and how to obtain things like, condoms, home pregnancy tests, get specialist contraception appointments and obtain Greenwich Home Sti Kits, from a reputable company like http://www.greenwichsexualhealth.org/home_sti_kits/

Working full time, cooking, cleaning, and maybe studying, as well as learning how to live with a partner isn’t easy and as a young couple just starting out together this can be a real challenge in your relationship.  Living and working away from any support network is hard so make sure as a young couple you keep in touch with family and friends back home.  It is a steep learning curve and not all couples will go the distance but if you are open and honest with each other, faithful, loving and forgiving you might just make it.

Once the initial excitement has worn off and you are settling down into domesticated bliss don’t forget the passion!  If there is no spark then the flame of love will grow dim and eventually die, so take time for each other, no matter how busy your young lives may be.  Spend time having fun together and remember what drew you to your partner in the first place.  Don’t grow complacent, every relationship needs work, so live, laugh and enjoy each other’s company every day.
