It could work if you can find someone that you trust and can get along with
I have a neighbor in our building that those that. She got divorce but didn't want to sell her apartment so she posted an ad and found a single mom roommate as well, they been living together for a year now I think. Each mother has there own bedroom and there girls shared a bedroom together, the split the cost of the mortgage, cost of food, cost for the babysitter for their girls after school and they will take turns watching each children if one of them wants to go out in the evening or doing drop off and pick up from places. They seem to have a good working system and they are especially supportive of each other if one needs something. I personally think it's a good idea if you get along with the other mother and there are similar parenting styles.
With anyone u do not know always do a back ground check first to make sure they are not wanted or have a history of any sort.
If u find a room mate that u click with that is always nice.
Personally I wouldn't want to be roommates with anybody but thats mainly because I like my independence and own space. So unless it someone I'm married to/dating I wouldn't want to live with them. Good luck!
if you get a job, I think it's a good idea. You just gotta be careful on you share a place with. Like anyone if and cause issues. EG the person doesn't pay the rent, has crazy parties, is extremly messy, ect
You have to have an agreement, and what will happen if that agreement is not met
Hi and welcome to the group.
Best to find a job first before rooming. It is not always that easy - especially like you see on tv.
It can work, but it's not as easy or good as it sounds. It's hard when your parenting methods and discipline are different than hers. I did it for a year and wouldn't do it again unless I had no choice. But, there's nothing wrong with giving it a shot.
