How can you count the votes without a poll?

We did not live together

A poll would make it easier. However if she has stayed up on the replies since she started it, it wouldn’t be hard for her to count the votes. Especially if there is an overwhelming amount going one way.

yes, we lived together for a year before we got engaged, but we had been together for the last 7 years before that.

Dated almost 4 years before getting engaged.  We did live together for about 1.5 years before the engagement.

I almost think the length of “waiting” has more to do with the couple’s age (i.e. the man’s “readiness” to settle down) than with living together.  Almost everyone I know lived together before engagement/marriage, to me, it’s sort of the normal next step if you’re headed in the marriage direction.

My Fiance and I dated for 7 years before he proposed and we never lived together. We still don’t, since we are saving for a house. Luckily we’re going to start that soon!

Yes, we lived together before getting engaged. We started dating in August 2007. We moved into together over 2 years later in October 2009. We got engaged in August 2010 after living together for 10 months and being together for 3 years. This was planned to be engaged within the year of living together.  We are getting married in July 2011 11 months after being engaged. By our wedding we would be together for almost 4 years.

We dated 2.5 years before we moved in together.  Then DH proposed about 5 months later, and we were married after 18 months of engagement.

No.

We dated for about 6 and 3/4 years before we got engaged.

BUT that’s because we both did professional degree programs where we went to schools in different cities, so we did long distance for about the last 4 of those years.  He proposed halfway though my last year of school, and once I was finished, I moved to the same city as him (and we were living together).  Otherwise, we probably would have lived together before he proposed.
