LeAnn Rimes is becoming a family woman.  According to several news outlets, Rimes’ flame, Eddie Cibrian, and his two children, are moving into her Hidden Hills home in Calabasas.  A source tells E! News, “Eddie and the kids are moving in with Leann to save money since Eddie lost his CSI job.”  Rimes purchased the home shortly after the two went public with their relationship last year.  Another source tells People, “They’re just enjoying the moment and are hopeful about their future together.”  Rimes finalized her divorce from chef Dean Sheremet (who recently made a big move of his own) in June, and Cibrian’s divorce from model Brandi Glanville is pending.

When’s the best time and the best way to move in with your flame?

Cupid’s Advice:

For many couples, making the move to cohabitation is big.  But is it the best option?  Cupid is here with some advice before you start making up a new set of keys:

1. Look to the future: If both of you feel the time is right to make the move, go for it.  However, make sure you’re equally committed to the relationship, and that moving in together isn’t just out of convenience.

2. Whose roof are you living under?: Whether you’re renting, buying, or one partner is moving into the other’s home, make sure the living arrangements are clear.  For example, are both names on the lease?  Who is responsible for what expenses?  Take a look at some key money rules for moving in together.

3. Don’t confuse the kids: As is the case with Cibrian and Rimes, there are children involved.  Before you uproot the family, consider the kids.  Will they be in the same school district?  Will they leave friends behind?  Age also matters.  Teens may be mature enough to understand what is going on and the reasons behind the move, but younger children will most likely be confused, and will come to you for explanations.
