HUbby and I closed on Friday, and we have been married for almost two years. We are expecting our first child in 5 months, so I think that it was all great timing! When did you get yours?
I included a poll, i think that I got all possible responses lol

I bought my condo before we were engaged, we plan to buy a house together after we get married but before kids.

- Wedding: June 2013 - Country Club
We want to wait a few years before buying a home. (: We’re both in school right now and where we are at is a great location until we are ready for that step!

We signed a contract on our house about 6 weeks after we got engaged! The timing worked great for us. We did not live together before getting engaged and we had the money to buy, so it just made a lot more sense to us to buy a house together vs. rent and buy later. Also there was a little bit of a push for us because we bought during the Obama $8,000 tax credit for buying a house thing, and that was about to expire. So we moved FAST after we got engaged to sign the papers before December 31!

I voted twice because DH and I bought our primary residence when we were engaged, and then we bought an income property several months after we were married.

I bought my first home after DS was born, but loooong before I met Mr. LK. We bought our forever home 8 months after the wedding.

We’re planning to buy around 2-3 years after we get married, depending on how quickly we can save up the deposit money. It will probably be before we have any kiddies.

Well we got married 3 months ago and I already have an almost 8 year old son so I checked ‘after kids’ and ‘2-5 years married’ because were trying to fix our credit and buying a home as soon as possible but I don’t see it happening for another year and a half or more.

I bought mine before I was with DH. We’ve now been married for almost 2 months and are expecting! I’m glad I don’t have to go through the home buying process while pregnant! I would not have been able to handle it.

We closed on our first home last month, with the wedding 3 months away. We were always planning on buying together, engagement or not. We are also baby free.

We close on our house on Oct. 19. We got married last May, so about a year and a half following the wedding. We do not have children yet.

Well assuming we close on time we would be married 1.5 years with no baby on the way yet (and not trying)

COngrats to everyone!! These are great stories!
@morkiemama: We didn’t even look for that long. We only started in the Spring. I didn’t find out that I was pregnant until July, so we were already into the process. It wasn’t that bad. I just didn’t get my hopes up too much or excited, since the baby can feel all of my emotions. I didn’t want to take the munchkin through the highs and lows like that, so I stayed kind of numb.

we bought our home six months before we were engaged. i was away at school though. so technically DH bought it, i moved in, we got engaged, got married, now we both are paying the mortgage!
