I’m moving in with my boyfriend of 2 years on Friday! I’m 23 years old and he’s almost 24.
I don’t expect to get engaged in the next year because I know how my boyfriend is about things, but…
I’m just wondering how long did you live with your boyfriend before getting engaged??
(I know some of you got engaged before living together, so how long were you dating before getting engaged?)

@alohakay: My bf (now fiance) and I were dating for just over 2 years when I moved in. We lived toghether for exactly one year and then he proposed!

We were together for 1.5 years before we moved in together. Then we lived together for 2.5 years, and then we spent most of the next year in a LDR, during which time we got engaged (after 4 years of of being together total). Now we live together again, and we will be married right around our 5-year anniversary 🙂

I wouldn’t live with him before we got engaged becuase it required me to move 75 miles away from where I was and leave my job, so I made it clear to him SO in answer to your question we dated almost 2 years before we became engaged.

Almost 4 years? We had talked about getting married before then, but due to deaths in the family (both of our fathers) things got postponed. We moved in together after less than 2 months though.

My husband propose after 9 months of dating ( we move in together 3 months into are relationship ) so he proposed 6 months after , if you count the ring less proposal he proposed right before I move in with him but I said NO I want a proposal with ring in it lol !!! So he save up and proposed 6 months later ! 😉

We moved in together after about 5 months because we both moved right across the country and it made sense money-wise for us to live together. We then dated for 4 more years before getting engaged.

9 months… but we started talking about engagement about 6 months in. We also moved in together after having dated for about 3 or 4 years, so I definitely felt like it was about time, and after moving in together, engagement was the next step.

@alohakay: We aren’t engaged yet, but have already been living together for a year. It will probably be 1 year and 2 months 🙂
