- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
until you got engaged or married?
I did! I moved to New York after Mr. Bee and I got engaged (I was 25). In Asian culture it’s customary for daughters to live at home until they get married… my parents would never in a million years have let me move to New York if I wasn’t engaged!
Any other peeps out there who lived at home?

We both moved away from our parents for schooling, and have lived alone or with roomates (never each other) for the past 6 years. Neither of us plan on moving home before the wedding; I’m not sure either of us could handle it!

Yep, we will both be living with each of our parents until a few months before the wedding. I can’t wait to buy a house, I will finally feel more like an adult! But, that’s just me, not insulting anyone 🙂

We both moved away from home for college (I went a semi-long distance; he went a short one) and have lived with roommates since. I don’t like having people do things for me, and I adjusted very easily to living on my own. Much as I love them, I can’t really go home and stay with my parents for more than a few days without starting to lose my mind. My FI has been out of college for several years and has just been able to afford his own place (no roommates!) for the past two years, and I am only five months out of college, so I’ve always lived with roommates — Boston is an expensive city! We are moving in together this summer.

I was a very independent teen and couldn’t wait to move out on my own. I left at 19. We moved in together right away but didn’t get married for another 4 1/2 years.

My fiance and I lived on our own (not together, but not living with our parents) for a few years (2 for me and 4 for him). After we got engaged, we both moved back home in order to save money for our wedding/life together. It has been hard for both of us, but it is definitely worth it. We will be starting our life together in a place more secure than most people I know. I am very thankful for it. Luckily, I don’t have to be at home much longer though!! Only 8 1/2 months!!! 🙂

I just graduated from college and am thankful that my parents are allowing me to live here at home and save some money to pay off those students loans. I want to pay off as much of it as possible before getting married. But F is itching for us to move into together asap haha

We both stayed at home just trying to save up money. A couple months before the wedding he moved out on his own and a couple months after that I followed. By then there were about 2 months left until the wedding, so we went almost until the end.

In the beginning we both lived with our respective parents. And through most of our dating it stayed that way. We got engaged in Dec. and he will graduate in June. He plans on moving out on his own a couple months after that. I won’t move in with him until after we are married. It is common in our church for the girls to live with their parents until they are married (people get married pretty young in our church) or get a very steady job.

We are both living at my mom’s now. It is really helping us to save for our wedding and our future home. My fiance moved up to Boston from Jersey, so we save a lot of rent money by living with my mom. It helps her too because my fiance helps around the yard and with the cars.

Part of me wishes I could still live at home and pay down some loans….but…it was either live at home and live 12 hours away from Mr. Bananas, or move out.
I do miss home a lot, but the LDR was beginning to cause a real strain on our relationship.

I haven’t really lived with my parents since I went away to college, though I did stay with them occasionally during breaks. My fiance lived with his mother until I moved back to the DC area a year and a half ago, then he just moved in with me! I kind of wish he had lived on his own first though; I knew how to take care of the bills and deal with roommates, but he had never done any of that before.

Neither of us has lived at home since college, although I think I might find it a little odd if he HAD been living at home, seeing as how he was 33 hen we met!

- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
We have been living together since before we started dating. It was a convenience thing and it worked out pretty well I think!
