Saturday, my DH, my son and I, along with our realtor went house hunting. I know what I want in a home, my husband knows what he wants and of course my 9 year old has an opinion as well.
For the most part, my DH and I agree on what we are looking for, or so I thought. As the day went on it was obvious that we are further apart than we realized.
I prefer a new build. The home we just sold was a new build. I want to be able to choose the paint color, the tile, backsplash and fixtures etc. To really make it my own. My husband doesn't mind a new build but he prefers a bit of an older home with 'character'. One that is already settled and may have the features he wants like mature trees and landscape in an established neighborhood.
We pretty much agree on the interior of the home as far as how many bedrooms we want, square footage, etc.. I just wish we could come to some type of middle ground. It's kind of hard to do when neither of us wants to compromise. haha
Do you and your significant other compromise when making major decisions? How so?
