The answer is yes, yes and YES.

That might sound eager, but it’s honest. It’s 2018 and more couples are working together than ever. With so many couples working together, living together and trying to balance out work from personal time, there has got to be a method to the madness. Well, we aren’t claiming to have that method just yet, but we can share some insider information on what it’s like working so closely together and the effects it has on our relationship.

This isn’t a blog post about how much we argue, or anything negative for that matter. If you work closely with your partner, then you know the deal. It’s challenging, it’s trying, it’s fun, it’s so many things. It isn’t black or white, it’s a whole spectrum of things! But for us, it’s mostly rewarding.

As of now, we have been working together for nearly 1 year.

In order for you guys to understand what it’s like for us, you should probably know that we only started working together 11 months ago. We started our YouTube channel back in April of 2017. This was before we even considered starting our blog. During that time, the YouTube channel was supposed to be mine with the occasional appearances from Hannah. Around this time last year, YouTube was my thing. Starting a channel was going to be my outlet and I was ready. One thing led to another and Hannah was in all of my videos. It naturally happened that way, so we just stuck with it.

We started The Angelinos 3 months later, in July of 2017.

This felt like a natural evolution and another way for us to document our lives together. Since the start, we have learned a lot about working together and we’ll give you guys all the tea.

So, in what ways has working together affected our relationship?

It’s brought us closer together.

Before starting our YouTube channel, we spent all of our time hanging out. Seriously, we watched a lot of Netflix, ate a lot of pasta in Hannah’s dorm room, and went on a lot of dates. When we weren’t doing those 3 things, we were spending hours in Hannah’s car driving around Southern California trying to find something to do. All of this created some amazing memories, but after a while we wanted to do something differently. YouTube was our way of creating memories in a new way.

I quickly learned that Hannah is clearly better at video editing than I probably will ever be and I’m more of the photo editing type. We found our weaknesses and strengths almost immediately. Luckily, our weaknesses and strengths are complimentary, which moves things along more smoothly. From this, we were able to see how well we can work together. Honestly, working so closely together, spending more time together working towards a common goal, and seeing our own weaknesses made us appreciate each other more. What one couldn’t do, the other could. There;’s definitely a lot of “Thank you’s” and “omg, what would I do without you?’s” going around.

We found a new passion for content creation.

We’re both creative people. Before starting YouTube and our blog, we were floating around trying to find the best creative outlet, but we ultimately felt unfulfilled creatively. Once we started to create our own content, we felt at home. We already have a lot in common, but having the same passion about creating content is just another thing to add to the list. We get to bond over this new found passion, and getting to do it together is an added bonus. Individually, we have a lot of different passions, but finding a common passion has given us something to do together and it’s more fun than anything.

Working together makes us talk things through.

Working together means spending more time together and this can be a recipe for a disaster for some. We must admit, we get annoyed and agitated at times but even through the most annoying of times, we’re forced to talk things through. Sometimes, when I’m overwhelmed and annoyed, I don’t like to talk at all. This can pose as a problem when theres 50 million things to get done by dinner time (anywhere between 6:00-10:00 for us). Even at the most trying of times (basically every day) we still have duties to fulfill, so we always have to find some way to keep the gears turning.

Sometimes we disagree on a blog concept or I want to get something done now vs. later while Hannah would rather watch Criminal Minds. See? wake up people! This is real life. What do you do when your girlfriend won’t get up off of the couch when there’s so much to do? seriously, asking for a friend.

Regardless of our differences, we always have to find some way to meet in the middle because we’re two different people with two different personalities, working towards the same thing.

If you work with your boo, let us know in the comments how it’s impacted your relationship!

Until next time,

Ariana & Hannah

  1. I don’t think I could ever work with my spouse. We work in the same industry, but with different companies. I will say, it is fun to talk “Shop” over dinner. It’s a good thing we can connect about and understand each others struggles within the industry!

  2. Great images on your blog! You two really seem to get along naturally, I’m glad it works for you. I think I could work with my hubby…maybe 🤔

    1. Thank you so much! we’re fortunate enough to be able to get along so well while spending a lot of time together. Luckily, we still maintain separate interests outside of work to balance things out.

  3. While I’ve never worked together with my girlfriend in the monetary sense, I can find myself in the statement that creating things together is a lot of fun. It’s a project that’s from the both of you and holds meaning for both of you.

  4. In my case, working with bae, really bound us even more, he takes my photos. We spend a lot of time talking about traveling and photography, so until now everything is pretty ok, i like that he supports what i am doing.

  5. My husband and I met at our old jobs. We didn’t work in the same department, but our paths did cross. I’m so glad that it worked (pun intended) out for you two! Cheers!!

  6. Love reading about all these details! I’ve definitely wondered what it would be like to work side by side a significant other whether in a 9-to-5 or in a side hustle nights and weekends. You guys are clearly killing it and it’s so lovely to hear that you’re enjoying the time and work together!

  7. Years and years ago I worked with my hubby. IT definitely affected the relationship. For us it was very enriching. Even to this day it adds depth to our conversation as it also means that I undersatand the ins and outs of his business.

  8. This is an inspiring read. Truly, there’s so many things you can learn about each other when working together. I’m glad that your relationship has strengthened through these experiences!
