It’s prob­a­bly best to take these as in­te­gral to the house-mov­ing process, rather than any in­di­ca­tor that you are both des­tined for the ro­man­tic scrapheap.

Make a pact, be­fore you even start pack­ing, to re­solve any small tiffs on the spot. Fac­tor in a trip to the cin­ema/theatre/favourite pub as a re­ward when you’re fin­ished. Be­ing able to mum­ble “think of the cin­ema” ev­ery 10 min­utes to each other will be a life­saver. Mark the boxes ac­cord­ing to each room. There will be more boxes and pack­ing pa­per than you could have ever imag­ined.

Schedule in a trip to the lo­cal re­cy­cling plant, or get the re­movals com­pany to take the stuff away.
