I really didn’t expect it to be different. We’ve been together 11 years and lived together for 6 but subconciously it did make a difference. While nothing “changed” in our day to day life. I suddenly felt trapped and resentful which I did not expect. I guess before I had freedeom,”I can leave at anytime” and now it’s ” I can’t leave”.

I definitely feel like we’re already married, even though I’m so far away, we take care of everything together: home renovations, healthcare issues, issues surrounding his girls (which he quite often reminds me are “our”girls)and their mom. We’ve been together 3yrs and it feels like a decade…in a good way

I’ve been married before and now live with my bf of 7 years (we’ve lived together for 6) so I have a unique perspective. It’s totally the same. We share a bank account, credit cards, a dog – so there is no change, really, except for the box I check on Mrs. or Ms., lol!

Yes, feels like we are married but we sure haven’t been together as long as many of you have been! 🙂 We have only been together just over 2 years, living together for 1.5.
We share everything financially and emotionally, and he truly is my best friend. The only thing I foresee changing upon getting married is we will have the same last name and we will start our 2 legged family. Right now our only “kids” are 2 cats, 4 dogs, and 2 horses. 🙂
