Virginia Roommate Agreement
The Virginia Roommate Agreement logically addresses how certain matters in a shared household will be carried out by members of the household. It gives everyone the opportunity to bring up sticky issues in a more comfortable context. For instance, talking about the fact that all members need to pitch in with housework can quickly become awkward if it is brought up by one roommate to another seemingly out of the blue. Whereas, addressing it in a more general way as part of the Roommate Agreement makes doing so less confronting and accusatory.
