When I moved in with my fiancé, I had some artwork and furniture that he simply refused to have moved into our house, citing them as either too colorful or girly. And on his end, there was some furniture that was too dull and bachelor pad-esque for my tastes. So, to appease each other, we had to get rid of those items. Ah, the things we do for love. Take this Craigslist ad, for example. Here we have a bride-to-be who's in the same situation, and is forced to choose between her future husband and her taffeta lady wingback chair:

The time has come for me and my glorious purple taffeta chair to part ways. I'm moving in with my husband-to-be, and we agreed there's not room for all three of us. As much as I love this chair, I love him more. So, I hope there is someone out there that will appreciate this beauty. It's been lightly used, and is in good condition. No tears, or stains, although the fabric has a few snags. The frame is solid, the cushion is spry. It looks and sits like a fresh, young chair, and is a beautiful purple with a happy sheen. Sorry if the pictures are a little blurry, I may have been sobbing gently when I took them.
Anyone else out there have stories about furniture or artwork you had to give up when you moved in with your partner or husband? Anything you made your significant other get rid of? Tell me in the comments below.
