So I have a table that is related to my user table; let's call this user_address.
I want to join the user_address table onto my User table like
INNER JOIN user_address ON user_address.userid = user.ID
But I was wondering how to do this using the Auth Class/User Model in Laravel? I could add a relationship to the User Model class for the user_address, but that feels like it's causing another query because the user_address is always needed.
Instead of running Auth::user()->user_address->street_name I'd prefer to just do Auth::user()->street_name... but I'm unsure where I can perform the join in the Auth/User model classes.
Anyone have any information on this type of situation?
