    We had been dating almost 2.5 years when we moved in together (: It was our second year of university. Our parents wanted us to live apart and get used to being away from home in first year, and then in second year he moved into my place (: I’m so thankful that my parents bought it for me, it makes it much less complicated with the ‘rent’ and it’s nicen not having to find a new place every year.

    We moved in together after about a year and a half. Good timing for us, but honestly I think that is a little soon for a lot of couples I know.

    We met in a different city/state and lived in different states ourselves. We did the long distance thing for 8 months before I moved in with him. The original plan was for me to move at the year mark but I had a roommate “situation” occur that pushed everything up. I don’t regret it for a second but it definitely took some adjusting! Floridian moving to Michigan, thankfully I moved in the summer so I had time and seasons to adjust to the nasty winters.

    We moved in together at about the 7-month mark, but we’d been 100% staying at each other’s places since about 3 months…. We were both in undergrad; I had my own apartment alone, and he lived with 3 other boys. His lease came up in the summer, so I bought him a bouquet of flowers with a note that said, “So… I’m looking for a roomie…. You interested?” lol…. soooooo cheesy, I know. He of course said yes, and he moved in officially at the end of July. Fast forward ~7 more years and 4 more apartments/houses we called our home, and we’re married–after a total of 8 years and 1 week of dating. 🙂 I think it’s safe to say we know what we got ourselves into, at least? haha…

    I was unofficially living with FH about a year after we started dating, it was official about 4 months later I’d say.

    We were dating about 5 months when we moved in together. I’ve enjoyed living with him and like being the woman of the house, lol.

    we started dating when we were 15 and still in high school. we lived about a 5 min drive apart. we both went to uni that was 15 minutes from home, so we both lived with our parents through university. when we were 21 (almost 22) the day after we graduated, we moved in together a few hours away from home for FI’s job! we lived in an apartment for a year, bought our house a year later, got engaged a few months after that! we have been together for 8 years now! whew!

    We dated for 2.5 years and took a longish break. Once we got back together we moved in within 4 months. When you know, you know! 🙂

    almost 5 years – it was basically a year after we got engaged around our 4 year dating anniversary, then a year later we moved across country for my internship so it only made sense to live together then!  plus before that i knew i wanted to wait to live together until we were engaged.

    It was about 5 months from the day we met actually. Maybe more like 2 months from the day we met though… he moved closer and he basically lived with me at that point, but only had half his things here until 3 months later when he realized he was wasting money on the other place.
