Past discussions have indirectly raised the question, how to live with a non-minimalist? This video shares some of the ways, the previously mentioned Matt D'Avella, lives as a minimalist with his non-minimalist girlfriend, Natalie.
To summarise, they advise not to put pressure on trying to change your partner, instead lead by example and you may find they wil start adopting some of the same prinicples, if not practices that you do, mutual respect is key. Moreover, they stress that you are indivuals and will have different priorities, for instance, Matt doesn't believe you need lots of clothes, but he does have lots of camera equipment. However, Natalie gets enjoyment from having a range of clothes so Matt makes a conscious effort to respect that. Lastly, a major point was to concentrate on the big things together, such as buying furniture, by focusing on the big things, you may find minimalism will follow in other areas.
