Dear Dr. Beth, My partner and I are thinking about living together sometime in the near future. We both love our houses and our neighborhoods aren’t really all that far apart.  I want to live with him but  we are both very attached our houses and have ties to our neighbors and friends that neither of us wants to give up.  I want us to live in my house and he wants us to live in his house.  We really don’t know how to “move” forward, so to speak.  We could use some advice.
