Moving really shows you a side to yourself and your partner. As you unpack boxes you start to stumble upon little secrets about your mate that you might not have known before. This reminds me of a book I never read, but heard about. "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" which, from what I am told is about how a man takes apart a bike and puts it back together, but in reality he is taking himself apart and putting himself back together.
Now for clarification I have to make a side note. My wife and I started dating long distance. As things became serious and a job offer in my neck of the woods materialized she moved. Much of her stuff remained in boxes after she moved in with me. We lived in my bachelor pad for the first years using my stuff. Then we moved to a rental house which already had everything we needed. So her stuff stayed in boxes. We lived in this rental for over 3 years. Now we have moved and things that have lied packed away for 7+ years of hers are starting to be unpacked.

- Shot Glass Collection : Shots make me hurt just thinking about them. I can still handle my liquor, don't get me wrong, but in shot form. No. You know what not just No, but Hell NO!

- Old Pictures : There is nothing more fun to look through than old pictures of your spouse. Snapshots of the time before you and her met serve to not only flesh out stories already told, but also provide ample ammunition for making fun...
- [This Bullet Point Has Been Redacted] : I cannot go into details here. But let's just say in general sometimes you can find "paraphernalia" that has long since been forgotten... And I will leave it at that.
- Bad Clothes : Let's face it, if you packed away clothes, forgot about them, and then are shocked to find them, I am willing to bet you are not going to be wearing them ever again.
