2) You know you'll have to share both the ice cream and the television remote.

3) You'll have to boot Pablo the Pool Boy.

12) Your main priority is climbing that corporate ladder and making yourself a success in your career.

13) Getting a break on your taxes and car insurance, despite what they say, isn't a reason to settle down.
