(Closed) Did you (or will you) officially live together before your wedding?

  • poll: Did you (or do you) and your FI live together before you were married?

    Yes. We got a place and moved in together (or one of us moved into the other's home).

    No. We lived/will live totally separately until the wedding (except for occasional overnight visits)

    Kinda. We maintain/maintained separate residences, but pretty much lived together in one of them.

    Other (please explain).

    We’ve been together for 5 years and have lived together for 4 years. Just over 2 years ago we built/bought a house together. It was definitely the right decision for us – we love spending all our time together and we love our home.

    Yes, my Fiance and I have lived together for 5 years now. I kind of just crashed at this apartment during my freshman year of college when I transfered to be closer to him. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’ve been living together for five years now. I guess we’re making up for the fact that we were long distance for our first year of dating! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I moved in with Fiance about 6 months before the wedding, but kept my permanent address at my parents. So on paper (when we registered for our marriage license) it looked like we lived separately. It was the last semester of grad school and I didn’t feel like finding an apartment for that short amount of time or deal with subletting.

    We didn’t live together before we were married. In fact, we both owned our own houses. We did spend most weekends together, though. 

    I am actually surprised how many people live together beforehand! Of the last 3 weddings I’ve been to, none have lived together. Maybe it’s more common outside of the South.

    We’ve been together 3.5 years, lived together for about 1.5 so far. By the time we get married we’ll have lived together for 2 years. We also bought a house about 10 months into living together ๐Ÿ™‚

    We did move in together the month before.  This kind of counts.  Yes technically we lived together but only due to logistics and the timing of our leases and finally coordinating last minute wedding plans.

    When we get married we will have been living together for 2 months. That’s what we decided. We didn’t want it to be for too long, but I didn’t want to be moving AND Planning the ending stages of the wedding.

    My FH and I have lived together for 2 years. In my opinion, that’s when you REALLY get to know each other and see if youre meant to be.

    Me and my Fiance have lived together for about 3 years now and I love it. I think you grow closer and get to know each other better when you live together.

    We lived together just over 6 months before we got engaged!  By the time the wedding rolls around we will have 2 years under our belts…. even bought a house over the summer! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We lived together for three years before. We both agreed we were happy not to have to worry about the stress of moving in together at the same time we were getting married.
