Getting a furry friend with your partner is usually what couples do when they know they’re in it for the long haul, but don’t want kids any time soon. Even though your new puppy isn’t a toddler, it’s still going to depend on you – making more responsibilities for you AND your partner. Here’s how your life changes when you get a pet:
- You’ll be less spontaneous because you’ll know you’ve got a furry friend at home you need to get back to.
- You might build a little resentment towards you’re partner if they’re not pulling their weight.
- You’ll also have more fun on your cozy nights in.
- You’ll start to expect more out of your partner now that you have to take care of this little guy.
- You’ll have to communicate more about who’s feeding and walking the dog and when.
- Things will get more serious now that you’ve signed on to a longer commitment.
- Sometimes, it really will feel like you have a baby at home.
- You’ll have little arguments about who’s taking care of your pet and when.
- You might not see eye to eye on how to do certain things…or what to name it!
- You’ll spend more time together, playing with your new family member.
There are tons of little things that’ll happen once you and your bae sign on to having a pet together. You can check out the complete list HERE. Make sure you feel confident about your relationship, though. Probably worse than a breakup is losing your pet, too!
