In latest celebrity news, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have announced their peaceful separation. Although, according to, the two haven’t been lovey dovey in a while. “They haven’t been ‘together’ for a while. They are best friends and still support each other and go to each other’s events and live in the same house,” a source said. Apparently the former celebrity couple seems to be better as friends than as romantic partners at the moment, and there are no hard feelings about that.

This celebrity break-up took us all by surprise, and the duo are still co-habitating. What are some ways to decide who will move out after a split?

Cupid’s Advice:

When you have been together with someone for a long time, moving out can be a very upsetting experience. You have come to a point where you are so comfortable with each other. How can you decide who is going to move out? Cupid has some words of wisdom on how to handle this situation:

1. Decide legally: You can go the simple route and whoever’s name is on the lease gets to stay. Although sometimes, it is more complicated than that if both of you two have your names on it.

2. Get a counselor: You don’t need a counselor just when you are working to try to make your relationship better, you can still use one once you two are officially apart. It doesn’t hurt to have a professional help you decide where to go from here.

3. Don’t let your emotions overtake: Have a rational discussion with your ex-partner to figure out what would make the most sense to do. Try not to become too attached to the small things. Have an open mind and realize that you now have this opportunity to either move out and start a beautiful new life in a wonderful new place, or you get to redecorate the home you are in now! Either option is an opportunity for growth.
