Yep.  We lived together for 2 years, and had been dating for 4 years, before we got engaged.

Hi!  Are you doing a poll on whether or not it was successful?  My ex hubby and I decided to wait to live together until we were married (we paid for our apartment for 2 months and wouldn’t live in it together) and got divorced within 5 years.

My bf and I have been together for 7 years, lived together for 6 and may get married in 2012 or so.  Hope that helps.

We dated for a year and 3 months, will be engaged for almost a year, and we are not living together until after the wedding!

Nope. The stats for people who cohabitate before getting engage or married are poor.

Not sure if you still need the info since you said you completed your project, but I’ll join:

No, we didn’t live together while we were dating. We dated for 3.5 years before we got engaged ๐Ÿ™‚

Nope, we didn’t live together first. We got engaged and then moved in together 7 months later. Then our wedding was about a year and a half later. We had a long engagement ๐Ÿ™‚
