We’ve all felt it, even if we didn’t know exactly what it was. Your work/life balance becomes totally out of whack, you find your to-do list is barely completed (if at all) and you get the sensation that you’re mentally and physically “hanging on by a thread”. You may have described your state as “burnout”, but you didn’t have “burnout”, you were more likely just really tired, right? Wrong. Burnout has increasingly become a more distinct and dire concept and now, thanks to the World Health Organization (WHO), it’s considered a legitimate syndrome.
“The decision [to move in together] is made now more from our heads than our hearts,” says McCance. “I think back in the day moving in meant that you were probably already married and it was after a long time of dating and you’re just really excited to start a life together and potentially start a family. The goal was a bit more romantic and a bigger deal,” she says. But now, we’re moving in because it makes sense—or actually, we’re maybe moving in because we have no choice.”
