Yes, we waited for both sex and living together until after we got married.  It’s been extremely easy for us. We must be pretty blessed to have it this easy since everyone else thinks it’s so hard!

I moved in my husband (then bf) after dating only 7 months & everyone thought we were crazy!!  You just can’t win haha.  Living together though has never been too difficult for us either 🙂

I think a lot of it has to do with your age and what your living situation was like prior to moving in together.  If you’re used to living with family or roommates, living with a SO is probably not such a big change.  If (like me) you lived by yourself for 15 years, it’s a HUGE change.

mrsdfarrar6714:  I lived by myself for almost 5 years before we got married. I was expecting this huge adjustment, lots of arguments at the beginning, and overall a challenging period of change. We dated for 3 yrs before getting married, then my husband moved in with me, and I was excited but definitely worried about the transition period.

However, we have been married for 3 months, and it has been 100% smooth sailing. We still have our disagreements, but they are the same type of thing we would have arguments about before we got married. I LOVE living together, and I can’t believe its already been 3 months since our wedding.

I’m with you!  Very easy transition – so natural and honestly just simplified our lives.

mrsdfarrar6714:  we were engaged for 6 months, and got married 8 months later and didn’t move in together until after the wedding. we have been fine ever since. i don’t think you have to be with someone forever nor do you have to live with each other before getting married to guarantee happiness. if both people are open and honest and willing to work with each other, then anything is possible.

mrsdfarrar6714:  That’s nice to hear. My FI and I won’t have the opportunity to live together before we get married. We had talked about it, but we are in an LDR, and logistically, it didn’t work out. One of my friends said that I was making a mistake not living with him before we got married, but I don’t want to put off the wedding just for that!

It’s refreshing to hear your perspective! Thank you!

We were long distance our whole relationship (not that we’d have lived together anyway lol) and still haven’t had any problems living together, despite the fact that our rental only has one tiny bathroom!  It’s been fine.  We talked about pretty much everything before the wedding, so there weren’t any big surprises.

I moved in with my boyfriend after dating a year. It was no problem. 🙂 We really get along well. The only thing he ever complains about is me stealing the covers. ;D Already been a year since we moved in together and no regrets!

DH and I are 23/24, after dating for 5 years and knowing each other for 9, first we were told we were too young to get married (maily by his mother, whom would NOT want us living together before being married lol), and then were told that because we never lived together, we were setting ourselves up for failure (this was mainly by aquaintances, etc). Well, we’ve been married almost 3 months and our marriage and the transition could not have been easier. Even my mom is impressed with how smoothly we’ve transitioned and she is a full supporter of us!

oh mylantas. adjusting to living together was very difficult for us. We dated for 7.5 years before buying a house. Both moved in straight from our parents houses. We were raised completely differently, so it was a bumpy start to figure out where we needed to compromise, couldnt change, and needed to totally change. By the time we get married, we will ahve lived together for 3 years. i am SO grateful for getting through that rough patch before marriage!
