Subject: Tech-loving couple tiny living ideas?
Message: Hi there,
I’m having a hard time convincing my husband that we can live happily
in a tiny home. He claims its’ not enough room for both of our
computers, our large TV and game consoles that he’s absolutely against
getting rid of or down-sizing.

I was curious to know if you had any suggestions and/or examples of
computer-centered homebodies who have made this move and are happily

My Thoughts on Couples Not Agreeing on Tiny Houses
I think it’s normal for someone already in a relationship to reject the idea of small spaces.
Some people are happy living in larger spaces and I think that’s okay.
I don’t believe in changing people if they don’t want to or aren’t even interested.
Everyone goes through stages at different times in their own lives.
But it’s not natural to have to convince someone to live in a tiny house when they really don’t want to.
If it doesn’t work yet, and you love your partner, just let it go and find other more constructive ways to improve your life.
One of the best ways to do this is by getting rid of some of your own stuff.
Let go of the tiny house idea for now, and work on smaller, easier ways to simplify right now.
There have been cases where it takes someone a few months or even a couple of years before they’re open to the idea.
Some are open to it right away. For others it’s a complete impossibility. It all depends.
