  • Wedding: May 2009

I’m about to move back South at the end of March and into my parents’ house until the wedding in May. My family’s very conservative and doesn’t believe in living together before marriae. I think it will be nice to have my mom there to help finish all the wedding plans, and my Fiance and dog will be a mere three hours away (compared to 17 currently), and we’ve waited this long, so it won’t be so bad waiting a couple more months.

  • Wedding: February 2008

I haven’t lived with my parents – not even for a summer – since I was 18!  They left my hometown, and I was a pretty independent person, so wanted to be on my own (plus my parents lived a 12 hour drive away!).  Since college, I had roomates for 3 years and my own place for 4 years before moving in with my then boyfriend, now husband.

  • Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House

Mr. MagPie and I are still in our parents’ homes.  But, we just signed a lease on an apartment, and will move in March 6.  I’m super excited — we’ve been together 7.5 years, and dated through college and long distance (while I was in grad school).  Admittedly, I’m nervous about each other’s little ideosyncracies driving one another crazy — which is why I wanted to get the move-in taken care of several months before the wedding!

  • Wedding: June 2010

Oddly enough I am currently living with my fiance’s family.  I hit a rough patch with my own family while I was still in school, and my fiance’s family welcomed me in their home before we were even engaged.  My fiance and I are trying to save some money while living at home to pay for the wedding and also save for our first home together.

Its so great to hear i’m not the only one STILL living with my parents! At this point, its no longer about doing the "traditional" thing, but the "money" thing! Like most of you, we too are saving our pennies for a house to own. With rising costs of weddings, I don’t understand how anyone can afford NOT to live with there parents (those lucky bums…)!

I moved back with my parents after college.  But when I got a job, we wanted to change that arrangement.  My Fiance lives about 10 blocks from my work, and as a compromise, we got engaged so that my parents would give me the blessing to move in.

Nope – as much as I love my parents and talk to them on a daily basis, living with them is just not a viable option. I lived away for college and moved home after college for just a summer and it was a really hard adjustment. Thankfully my fiance was able to stand it better then I, and he lived at home for a year and saved money and bought a condo (so impressive for a 23 year old in my opinion!!)

I then lived with roommates for three years and moved in with my fiance (before we were engaged). For us, I think it was perfect, it’s not for everyone.  But also living with our parents would not have worked for either of our jobs as our parents are in the suburbs and our jobs are in the city.

  • Wedding: July 2009

Like Miss Chocolate Chip it’s great to realize I’m not the only one going through this! My family is very traditional so I am living at home while Fiance lives in the condo that we bought last July. I really can’t wait till I can finally move in after the wedding this July!

  • Wedding: September 2019

I have a great relationship with mom and dad, but I moved out at 18 for college and never looked back. Lets just say if I were to move back in, I think our relationship would get un-great very fast. I lived in another city for college and with roommates over the summers. I know its a growing trend for people in their 20’s to keep living with their parents but I would personally feel like a burden. I already feel like I owe them so much and have trouble accepting more freebees from them, or anyone. The fact that my mom wants to pay for my wedding dress is hard enough to swallow! Honestly I would probably not marry someone that lived with his parents because I would worry he didn’t know how to take care of himself and maybe was too used to being cleaned up after. My fiance and I are now dependent on eachother for a lot of things, but neither of us ever want to depend on anyone else. But, I can see how it would make it way easier to afford a house!

  • Wedding: August 2009 - Bernardo Winery

I  moved home about 5 years ago to save money and I will lived with my parents when FH and I met 3 yrs ago and I will live with them until FH and I get married in August 🙂
The hardest part is that we’re looking into buy a condo right now and if we get one before we’re married he’ll live there w/o me until we get married.

We’re planning to (finally) get a place together a couple of months before the wedding, but I guess the delay has been more about the fact that I go to school out-of-state than anything else. 🙂

We’re both still living at home. Having just graduated last summer and with him just starting a full time job and me still looking, we just aren’t able to leave yet.

I will move in with the Mr, one way or another, before the wedding but it’s looking like it will be right before at this rate! He (and me to an extent) believe that renting is dead money so we’re buying once we’ve got a deposit together!
