No, we didn’t. We moved in together 2 months before our wedding. We were engaged for a year before our wedding.

i told my Fiance i would not move in with him unless we were engaged. not as a way of putting pressure on him, but as a personal choice. i actually had not planned on living with someone before marriage, but his lease was ending and it didn’t make sense for him to move somewhere closer to me but still live on his own.

met january ’09, engaged november ’09, moved in march ’10, married august ’10.

  • Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia

We started dating in 2002 – lived with our respective parents until we moved to London in 2007. That was our first time living together and we learned a lot about each other. Phew!

We did.  🙂

Started dating June 13, 2008.

Unofficially lived together (spending every minute together!) until early October 2008 when he did a 6 month stint at another university, so we were long distance.

Officially moved in together late March 2009

Engaged on Christmas 2010.

Planning for a wedding in May 2012.

We dated for 2 years and then lived together for 1 1/2 year before he proposed.  I don’t think it matters if you live together before or not, it’s all on the guy and what he’s comfortable with.    Some guys are ready to take the plunge quickly and others are more tentative.

Yes we did and it was the best decision ever! I wanted to wait until we were engaged but it was important to him to live together first. In the few months that we lived together before our engagement we saw the good, bad, and sometimes ugly parts of each other but it truely made our relationship stronger.

we met in Jan 08, moved in May 2010, got engaged NYE 2010 and will be married Nov 2012
