A Love Quote
Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all of the time, made new. --Ursula K. LeGuin



Breaking Up :
Who Gets What? :
Joint Purchases - Take Turns



Usually it´s easy to divvy up stuff when you break up. He gets his clothes, she gets her clothes. He gets his sports equipment, she gets her bikes and roller blades. However, if you´ve done any joint purchases, that is where you can run into disagreement.

Do your regular divvying first. Anything that you even start to contest, just put into a pile. Doing the main sorting will help you realize just how much is yours anyway, in most households :) Now, stare at the pile. Take turns, one by one, removing items from the pile. Don´t go by monetary worth, because something that is worth a lot of cash may not be nearly as important as something that really means a lot to you. Take turns and go through the pile, choosing items.

When you´re done, if you want to offer a trade, then go ahead. But remember, both of you have valid reasons for wanting things. You aren´t going to get everything you want. Compromise is key.
