    We first moved in together after 2 months.  We were 18 and 19, were spending EVERY night at each other’s house, and felt like we were grown and ready to be living on our own.  We got the first apartment that we saw in the paper, and stayed for about 3 months.  When the sewer started backing up into the shower, we left and we moved in with his parents for a month until things started getting stressful . It took us 2 years after that to officially live together again and have been living together mostly ever since January 2008 (barring a short break-up that we had).  I think that if we had been just a little smarter, we could have continuously lived together and saved ourselfs a lot of uspet!

    We moved in together after dating for about a year and a half. It just felt right. We lived about 30 minutes away from each other. He worked nights, whereas I worked 9-5, which meant we didn’t see each other during the week. Every weekend, we would stay over at each other’s places. One weekend at his house, the next weekend at my apartment, and so on and so on. Except I felt bad because he was allergic to something in my apartment, and wheezed when he was there, so it started being me at his place every weekend. I got sick of packing, so I moved in. Haha! Just kidding, it was a bigger decision than that 😉 But still, I was over there all the time. So we talked about me moving in. My rent was high, and we could save more if I moved in. That was when it hit me–we really were a “we” and “we” would both be much happier if we lived together. So I moved in. It wasn’t the most popular idea to my family, but they got used to it. We got engaged a little over a year after I moved in. And we are getting married a little under a year after getting engaged! 🙂

    We lived together from the start.  DH happened to live 2 blocks down on the same street and disliked his place at the time- so he came over and never really left!

    We dated long distance for 7 months before I moved from Indiana to Washington to be with him. The crazy thing was that we’d only spent a total of maybe 3 weeks togduring in person during those 7 months! But when you know, you know! Now we’re happily married!!

    7 months. He would call me when he got home from work, I would come over and we’d make dinner together. After dinner he hated me to leave and always asked me to stay over, so I did. After 6 or so months of this he said “Why are you paying rent and utilities somewhere you’re not living, just move in with me” I told him I would on one condition, there has to be a promise of marriage sometime in the near future.

    I moved in Feb ’09 and we married Oct ’11. All because two people fell in love.
