We saved this recent New York Times' real estate story for Valentine's Day. Love Me, Love My Apartment looks at the ties between real estate, love and cohabitation in New York City. With rents (and mortgages) high, cohabitation can make smart financial sense, but it doesn't always work out...
The article explores anecdotal evidence of couples who move in together quickly (My lease is up!), couples who refuse to leave their own spaces (Let's move into MY apartment.) and even couples who marry just to please a co-op board! Leave your own cohabitation horror stories/fairy tale endings in the comments below!
In a similar vein, The Kitchn looked at the recent New York Times article I Love You, but You Love Meat, exploring how relationships are often defined by
real estate diets and eating habits.
