Yup. When he proposed, we had been together for 4 years & a few months, but living together for 4 months at that point.

  • Wedding: July 2011

Moved in together after dating for four months. Took ownership of purchased home 16 months after we met, engaged at 17 months! We’re at 22 months now.

We’ve been living together beyond more than we lived independantly. It seems crazy (I think it is on paper) but when you know, you know, and even living together we still really hardly saw each other -we lead really cool, independantly busy lives, less so now that we’ve bought the house and brought a dog into our lives….but still there are weeks we live in the same house but hardly see each other!

  • Wedding: June 2011

We got engaged in July and bought a house in September.  We are getting married in June.  We had talked about moving in together before we got engaged but it just wasn’t what I wanted.  So he proposed and then we went house hunting!

I’m moving into his house (he rents with a few friends) in just over a week, and I’m not engaged, so yes 🙂  I honestly didn’t want to live with my SO until we were married, but my SO didn’t want to marry someone without living with them first, so we made a compromise – we would get engaged and then move in. But circumstances changed, and I ended up having to move in 5 months earlier than planned. So the original get-engaged-by-May plan still exists, but we’ll be living together before hand.

 

*sigh* not exactly what I wanted… but it’s not a huge issue to me, so I let him win 🙂

  • Wedding: October 2011

We started dating during my senior year of college, dated for about 8 months when we moved in together (after graduation) and we lived together for just shy of 2.5 years when we got engaged at the end of October. By the time we get married we will have lived together 3.5 years. I don’t think it sped up or slowed down the engagement at all – but it is nice to know all of our quirks going into marriage. No surprises here, lol.

We dated a year, then got engaged.  He moved in after we were engaged, but before the wedding (when his lease was up).  I never thought I’d live with someone before marriage, but he traveled 5 days a week for work and it didn’t make sense for him to renew his lease for 6 months at an astronomical rate, especially when he was only there on the weekends.
