DH is not allowed in either freezer. He upsets the delicate balance, and can't get the doors shut if he does retrieve something. Then he swears a lot, and I have to restuff.
LOL. I can relate! I need to organize at some point so that I could respond to a thread like this. Some day...

lol, dawg and chopper.
dw went food shopping today, and when she got home she tried putting something in her freezer (we each have our own kitchens in our small 2 family home) and ended up dumping a giant, frozen solid california picinic in my lap stating that it was taking up too much space.

i'd forgotten that i picked up a few on sale a while back, and since my freezer was stuffed to the gills, i put an extra one in her freezer since there was plenty of room.

i guess i'm making pulled pork some day this week...

if the electricity bill is ok, i recommend having a second kitchen or a garage refrigerator for all couples or families that have 2 cooks/foodies. it's a great deterrent against divorce.

Don't have two cooks, but we have separate bathrooms and each have a room that is all ours to do what we please in. Having your own area to express yourself is great in a relationship. In our house the main level is OUR space, we both had input in how it looks (the kitchen is all mine though) the finished basement has a guest bedroom done to my taste, and a den done to his. The top floor has our separate bedrooms (we are compatible in so many ways except sleeping) and bathrooms. I like a neat tidy space and an uncluttered bathroom, he like has everything everywhere. This works out so well for us! We are closer than most people that we know in spite of, or because of this arrangement.

Now that, too, is brilliant!

I recommend separate houses...and a 3rd one to "share" when needing companionship...

Currently, I do because I spend more time at house #3. After May, whoever is the last one to leave, will have to take care of making sure the dishes are done, floors are clean, and bathroom is done. Kinda like a cottage/cabin. Take your garbage and linens home with you.
