    I moved into his place 5.5 months after we met. He had asked me to move in about 5 billion times before that, but I wanted to wait for 6 months. My roommate was being a jerk, so I moved out 2 weeks early. I was basically living at DH’s (the BF’s) place by that point though, I only went home to change or grab stuff.

    ETA – he was disappointed every time I insisted on waiting for 6 months, but we didnt get engaged until 3.5 years later, so I dont know what his big rush was! lol

    We moved into our house a month after he proposed. So a year and a half……ish?

    It took us just under two years to move in with each other. Even then we made sure we had a month to month lease. 6 years later, I’m glad we took the risk!

    Little under a year. But I practically lived with him before then anyway.

    A little under 2 months.  I just knew I was going to be with him (I wasn’t really concerned about getting married), so I didn’t see the point in waiting.

    Started dating him right when I turned 16, moved in with his family a couple months later, moved out together at 19. Now we’re 26 and live in our own place together.
