    We lived together for just over 2 years before we got married. I wanted to live together before getting married. I think you see a persons whole other side when living together. Their bad habits espeically!

    We’ve been living together for 2 years now. We knew we were committed to each other so we bought a house. We’re getting married next August and it’ll be 3 years that we’ve been living together! I think that most of my friends are in the same situation. Thinking back to the last 5 weddings I’ve been to… I think all of them had lived together first.

    We had been living together for a year prior to getting married. Before that, we were long-distance, but had we not been, we would have lived together then, as well.

    yep. We bought a house together a few months after we got engaged and moved in together when we took possession, which was 13 mo before our wedding.

    We starting living together before we officially started dating… We bought our house 2 1/2 years before our wedding… with the economy the way it is it made more sense to make sure our future as far as school and a house go wer set… then wed worry about a wedding… plus we almost killed each other building our house… we knew we could make it through that we could make it through anything

    Yes, by our wedding we will have officially lived together for three years, and one year unofficially – i.e., he crashed at my apartment most nights because he had bad roommates.

    We’ve been living together for 3 years now… and a lot of couples we know live together.

    Just curious though… do you think they have written the same address even though they don’t live together? (ie the address where they live together AFTER they’re married?) I only say this because I sometimes use my apartment address and sometimes still use my parent’s address depending on what it’s for.

    Uh, kinda. We rent together with my mom and we’ve lived together for years but for various other reasons he kept his official residence as his parent’s home until around 6 months before the wedding. So on our marriage certificate it lists us at two different addresses because when we applied for it we were officially not living together.

    We lived in two different states so one of us had to move. My Fiance just moved in around 3 weeks ago. He can work from home and my apt is way cheaper than his. It just made sense. So far so good!!
