Fiance and I were dating 3 years before we moved in together and were living together 2 years before he proposed. This has more to do with the fact that we are young and didn’t want to rush.

@alohakay:  We lived together a little less than two years, but we moved in together very early and had no spare money for the first year and change. It was only about six months of living together with actual stability before he proposed.

We dated 6 months before I moved in. he wanted me to move in after 3, but I told him we had to wait until at LEAST 6 lol. We lived together just over 3.5 years before getting engaged (much to my dismay lol) I was ready after 2 years of dating but he just wasn’t ready yet!

We moved in together in April and got engaged in July so I guess about 2.5-3 months.  We had been dating for 7 months prior to moving in together and had known each other for a year.  We are also a bit older (I’m late 20s he was 30) so I think that will affect a lot of the answers.

We’re in a little different of a situation because we’ve been together 11 years. However, we got together in high school, and then I went away for college. When I got back from college we moved in together about a year later with roommates, then a year after that we got our own place just the two of us, then exactly one year later he proposed. Does that make sense? lol. So I guess, after 2 years of actually living together, and he told me the only reason it took so long was due to financial reasons. He wanted to make sure we were in a good spot before we took the next step.
