    Don’t live together due to logistics.  However, we plan on moving in together when I graduate so it will be between 2-3 years.  Ideally, I would like to be engaged before that happens.  I should probably tell him that.

    ETA  I should say that we do spend a fair amount of time at each others place, so we do have fights about “the home” it’s just not “ours” lol.

    We started dating in college, so I was in school for 3 years, then lived at home for a year, then moved in together. this is our 3rd year living together, and we just got married last month.

    Like 2 months! It happened pretty quickly. My friend and I had just moved into our first apartment and DH (then BF) had been spending a lot of time there. After a few weeks of sleeping there every night, he decided to move in. That was almost 7 years ago.

    We purchased our home when we had been together for only 11 months, but it wasn’t built yet so when we actually moved in together we’d been together 1 year, 8 months and we’ve lived together now for 1 year, 7 months.

    We haven’t moved in together yet but we will next September! At that point we will have been together 8 1/2 years… We are only 21/22 though and still at university so that’s why it’s so long. We’re moving in together after graduating this coming summer. Can’t wait! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We moved in at about 6 months… maybe less. We were in different states and it was just easier. It’s been over 3 years now and we get married in 3 months. It was very quick but when you know you know ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have been together for 6 1/2 years and are just moving in together next month. We started dating in high school and then we went to seperate colleges and after graduating I have been waiting for him to start his full time job, I hate how long government jobs take to start.

    tecnically – not until we were married. I stayed the night as his house more often then not but we both had a place of our own until we go married. We had been dating just over 2 years when we tied the knot.

    We dated for 2 years while I was in college, so moving in together wasn’t really an option until I graduated.  The day I got my diploma, I packed up and moved to his apartment!  I never even stopped back at my parents’!

    Haha, we officially moved in together after 2 years but unofficially after one day. We met in college, and the day after we started dating, he spent the night at my place (nothing happened, for the record! lol) and just never left. With my friends in college, it was pretty common for SO’s to just “live” with their mate – which was really just sleeping, since you were on campus all day with classes and activities. It wasn’t really living together in the sense that cooking was irregular and difficult due to roommates, and not a lot of time was spent in the apartment anyway. After doing this “unofficial” living together in college for 2 yrs, we officially got an apartment together after graduation. And THAT was when the typical fights began, haha! About chores, bills, etc ๐Ÿ˜‰ I voted 2 years, though you could argue.. 1 day.

    Technically, we moved in together about 2.5 years into our relationship… but in college, we practically lived together. He had an apartment junior & senior year, but I think slept in it about 2 nights a month.
