I married a man who was divorced for awhile.
When I moved in.. #1- it had been a bachelor pad for a while.
#2- it still had the basics of what the previous wife had done before, like what was in certain places or cabinets, closets etc had stayed that way.
He sort of just kept right on living around the way it was before, minus what she took of course. It was hard for me to make sense of alot of things for awhile when cleaning out a junk drawer, cabinet or file cabinet, attic boxes etc. There were years and years of stuff that really, she didn't want and left and he had no clue what it was or what to do with it. I felt like it was going to take me forever to sort through it all, slowly making decisions on what was what and trying to make it feel completely like "our home". Plus, when we did buy a new home and moved, I didn't want to take all of that with us too. So, I had to narrow things down alot.
I thought I was never going to stop making piles(BIG piles) of throw away, keep but store, donate and trash etc. I'm a recycler so it took even longer because we were 13mi from nearest town that did recycling pick up/drop off. I eventually got it all done.
Have you ever been through this when you moved into your husbands place?
I'm just assuming that when guys move in with us,(after marriage) they don't worry with most of this stuff but I guess I'd better be careful on that one, Lol. Some guys clean and organize very well!!

Next question overall
Is factual information less valid if presented by someone of differing beliefs?
