What a great question! We’re not living together till we’re married, so I would love advice/warnings, etc, too. 🙂

How many hours he can spend playing video games. I did know beforehand, but until I witnessed it with my own eyes I didn’t fully comprehend it.

That and he tweezes his eyebrows Tongue out

That a full size bed absolutely would NOT work.  We were at the furniture store the first opportunity we had to purchase a king size bed.

@DJones6005: We have a full bed and it’s a pretty good size for us. I’d love to upgrade to a queen eventually though.

we have not and will not live together until we are married.  We are in the process of buying a new house as well.  Two months to go and weve been together for 4 1/2 years.  I have made the mistake of breaking that promise to myself with 2 other relationships and wasnt about to let myself down this time.  Im so glad I stuck to my guns.

Oh, boy!  We sure have learned a ton about one another since I moved in after marriage.  We’re older (35 & 40) and had lived alone for 10+ years, so we’ve had a lot to get used to.  Not to mention that were very set in our ways and are a bit “controlling”, so to speak. 

The interesting/funny things I learned include: 1. He has stacks of things all over…the kitchen island, the dresser, his desk, etc.  When I ask what they’re for, it’s to “trigger” his memory for his list of “to-do’s”.  2. I learned that he’s very anal about how the washer/dryer are used.  He doesn’t want me to place anything on top of them to avoid scratches (they’re top of the line and stainless).  3. He can spend about 30 minutes in the bathroom easily, especially if he has a car magazine.  lol  4. He tivo’s more shows than I do!  haha!

We didn’t have any “whoa!” moments when we moved in together.  The funniest thing was that he was anal about the dishwasher.  To the point that if I load it, he’ll go through and “do it better”


We have a full, and we don’t mind it.  We’ve been living together for almost 2.5 years. We plan to upgrade to a queen eventually, though.
