What did you guys do when you decided to shack up – either before or after the wedding.
I moved into his place because my place was 375 sq feet (yikes! but I miss downtown LA terribly.) He had lived there with an ex for 2 years which was uncomfortable at first. Once I started painting walls and buying new sheets, it wasn’t so bad,

When my FI got back from Iraq, we got a house. We’ve been long distance for years, so the question doesn’t *really* apply to us. I get to hold down the fort until November while he lives with a married army buddy (just the dude, the wife lives in TX or something) in a small apartment that his housing allowance covers. So he kinda gets to move in with me =]

We have moved twice, and neither time did one of us move in with the other.
First, we got separate apartments when we moved across the country together. Then we got a house together in our new city.
I wouldn’t have a problem moving in with one or the other, it just didn’t work that way for us.

Ooh, I smell an opportunity for a poll! (With options not just "his place" or "a new place" but also him moving to your place.)
Us, we got a new place together. Our jobs happen to be two blocks from each other in the city, so we moved to be closer to work.

My parents moved away to a different city and didn’t want to go with them so I ended up moving in with my FI parents while he was finishing up school in Texas, so for a couple of months it was just me and the InLaws, no bigge were quite close
FI moved home in May 2007 and we bought a house in February 2008 and have been there a year now! love it! just our nice starter place, we’ll definetly be looking for a house in a couple of years

We both had apartments and we decided to rent a house and came out cheaper than we did living apart. We have since bought our own house because we were just paying for a house that didnt belong to use.

FI moved into my apartment about a year before we got engaged – better location, cheaper rent, bigger. I have lived there almost 4 years now! We are currently house/condo hunting now though. I will be a little sad to leave.

my partner already owns his own home mortgage free so im moved in with him.
the move didnt take much, apparently my life consisted of 3 boxes of stuff and 30 pairs of shoes, he still doesnt get the shoe thing but they have their very own room now so what he doesnt see he cant wonder how much ive spent

I owned my house when we met & he had an apartment. He bought his house 7 months later and asked me to move in. I told him I would move in when we had been dating a bit longer…being a bit gun-shy about living with someone again.
I moved in with him a year later and sold my house. It’s been great, I’m really happy that we live together, but ugh, I loved my house, and I miss my central a/c,

- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
Mr. MJ moved in to my place when we first moved in together. He had a bad roommate situation and I needed a roommate, so we took it from there! A few months later we moved in to a new place that was really "ours together" instead of just "my place where he lives too". Tomorrow we continue our journey together as we buy our first house!!

He took me in:) I was just a loly college kid with bad roommates who was dating him and he let me move in rent/bill free. We dont have rent/morgage so all he pays is utilities anyways. I love my FH so much.

We met in school… so dorm life, currently my place, and we are currently looking for a new place… our first new together place! =)
I’m nervous and excited! But, I am thankful to have gotten over the first year of living together at my place… I’m a neat freak and he is a slob… I’m neurotic and he is laid back. A few fights, but it was an otherwise easy transition.
