Yes, my Fiance and I lived together for a year and 5 months before we got engaged.  We rented for a year, bought our house in April, and he proposed to me in September.

Dating Dec 2007 (yep, we were roommates before we started officially dating)

Moved in to our own place with no roommates March 2010

Engaged June 2010

Will be married Oct 2011

We met in grad school and he was a year into school and I was two years in when we became roommates with a third friend. We lived with another couple for a while, then a couple roommates until we finally found a place just the two of us could afford. We got engaged the day after he finished his master’s and got a job!

No. In fact, we won’t live together before marriage. By the time we’re married we will have been together for 7 years. It’s for both geographical (we’re long distance right now) and religious reasons (FI will be ordained after we’re married)

Were friends for a few months before we started dating.

Began dating August 1999.

He moved in with me a month later (always said I would NEVER, NEVER do this and he was my first real everything). 

We moved into our own place January 2000.

Bought a condo together in 2000 (can’t remember when…maybe that fall).

Got engaged November 2000.

Married September 2001.

Will be married 10 years this upcoming September.  I consider it 12 years since I feel as if we’ve been married since day 1 and we talked about marriage, kids, etc…a month into our relationship.  And, we had or money together from the time we moved into our first apartment in January 2000.

So ladies from the data that I collected there was no significant difference in the means of the couples who lived together vs the couples that didn’t in fact the p-value for the t-test I ran was 0.5 which is highly significant although one might want to consider the source being that wedding bee has a high number of women who have been waiting for at least a year.

ugh…brings me back to my stats days in college.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

After about 2 1/2 years of dating and having a LDR, we discussed the next steps of our relationship and he mentioned moving in together.  I told him that the only way we’d move in together is if we thought marriage would soon be in our future.  He moved-in in December and proposed in May. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, I live with my SO ๐Ÿ™‚

Started dating: July 2008

Moved in together: February 2009

Had a baby: September 2010

He bought the ring: November 2010… still waiting to be ‘officially’ engaged!

We are talking about getting married at the end of 2011 or the start of 2012. We always knew that we would get married (when he first told me he loved me he said “I’m going to marry you one day”… kinda cute!) so it will be exciting for it to actually happen!

We dated for four years before being engaged.

Two of those were long-distance by about 3.5 hours, so we saw each other about once a month.

The third year we were both in college together, living in separate dorms.

The fourth year we moved in together.

We will be getting married on our 5-year anniversary, after having lived together for 2 years, one of which being engaged.

Hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚

We did not live together before getting engaged.  

We had dated for 8 years when we got engaged. 

We bought a house together 7 months after getting engaged and live together now.
