@LaurenK0105: Oh that’s great, it’s always nerveracking.  I’m the reverse.  My parents are religious and quite conservative.  I moved in with one ex (super early) and my mom said “We don’t approve but we still love you.”  This time around, she gave a big sigh and said “I’ll help you pack” – however – I was the last of 3 kids to announce that I was moving within a one month time frame (and she helped the others a ton) so I’m quite sure that was a good chunk of the sigh!  In first case my SO’s family could care less and in the second, was supportive.

I was terrified! My FI and I had only been together for 7 months when we moved in together, but it just made sense to. I knew my parents would be mad about it, but I am an adult. FI’s parents were about the same. I think they’ve gotten over it. My brother did the same thing with his now wife (though they’d been in an LDR for 3 years when they moved in together), so that probably broke my parents in a bit! My brother and SIL even had to sleep in separate beds when visiting my parents until they got engaged, but my parents said Fi and I could even before we got engaged (though he hasn’t been back for a visit again). Oh, parents.

My parents were pissed for a little while but after we finally did it, they warmed up to it and couldn’t be happier or imagine life any other way. His parents didn’t care.

I moved in with my husband (then bf) after dating for 5 months. I thought for sure my mom would have a little freak out, but she was very happy for me. She loved him from the start. Plus, I was living with her at the time and I’m sure she wanted me out.

His parents were also happy for us, I think it made more sense b/c he’s a little older. Plus his mom also loved me. I’m the first girl my husband ever brought home, and I happen to be a “nice Jewish girl.”

Our parents were supportive of moving in. It’s the norm in our families, all our siblings and cousins have lived with their significant others before marriage.
