Hi Bees! So how did you decide who moved after you two got married?
Me and FH currently live about 45 min apart. I have a full time job that takes me 15 min to get to and he has a part time job and goes to school down in his area.
I will most likely be moving down to his area which in a way sucks because then I’ll be about an hour away from work but I will probably start looking for a job down in his area after the wedding because an hour for me I can deal with it but not for long but at the same time he is much more closer to his family and friends than I am with mine so I figured it wouldn’t be too bad.

We both owned homes and lived about 25 miles apart. He moved to my house and now we’re renovating his home and plan on moving there this fall. It makes sense because his house is much closer to my work and he has no mortgage. I’ll be putting my house on the market as soon as we move.

FI and I were not engaged yet when I bought my house, but we were talking about him moving in with me once I did and we knew we would eventually get married.
I knew the area where I wanted to live and was already planning on buying a house.
My work commute went from 15 miles but taking 30-60 minutes (depending on traffic) to 17 miles and taking 20 minutes (since I now go against traffic.)
FI moved in with me and his commute went from 10-15 minutes to 45+ minutes on a good traffic day.
If we were buying a house together, we might have discussed a better location halfway between our jobs.
