I am developing a novel and have two main characters that start the story off separate but interacting with the same situations. I was wondering how often it would be OK to change between the two of them. At this point, I am switching every few pages after each of them interact with a situation. Will this be too jarring for the reader? This is my first story involving multiple main characters and I seem to be having problems keeping both of them as "main characters" instead of moving one of them into the background.
