Tips for a Harmonious Relocation for Couples Tips for a Harmonious Relocation for Couples Couples are designed to stay together. However, there are some instances wherein they need to separate temporarily. One example of this is when one person needs to move ahead to accommodate a new job. Here, another person needs to stay to sell the house, attend the kids, and fix the things necessary for moving. Apparently, this instance can be too stressful—financially and emotionally.      However, couples should be able to withstand the stresses brought by this situation. To do so, it is important for them to organize several things to make moving harmonious to both of them. First, they should be able to talk about as to who will be responsible on certain tasks. This will allow the couples to work as a team. For example, the person moving ahead can arrange appointments with councilors at new schools for kids and call the utilities; meanwhile, the person staying behind can be responsible to obtain school records and take care of the mail forwarding. It is also helpful if the couples will agree to get stress reduction. They may decide to hire a help for household repairs, lawn maintenance, packing, and child care. Obviously, this is the perfect time when hiring a help is important for them since their team is divided.
