Partner Visas - writing your own statements (sponsor & partner)

Hi everyone!

So I have understood that my partner/sponsor and myself also need to write a stat dec to give a timeline of our relationship and/or explain why the relationship is serious/ongoing etc.

I was just wondering if anyone who's already done this has any tips?

My partner is VERY to-the-point and not big on writing, and I myself tend to over-write (maybe it's my having studied history that I name too much detail to give as much context as possible LOL) and so I am afraid we will both "do it wrong" - I know you can't "do a personal statement WRONG" but you know what I mean? Should I make it a fairly dry legal declaration, because I can do that, or should it include sentiments etc? Any tips at all? Advice on length?

Any advice would be VERY welcome!
