Except that "who's cooking tonight?" might turn out to hide a whole
slew of issues which need to be worked out...

As for my short experience of in-cohousing living (since last July, with
most members moving in later on):  So far, the level of stress for me has been
exceedingly high.  I hope that this is because we are still trying to
put in place various rules and structures, in addition to learning how
to live near/with each other,    and that the level of stress will go down.
(Would it?)...
