    We moved in together in May 2008 and he proposed that October, so 5 months. But we were together/dating for about 3 1/2 years at that point.

    Hmm… Now that I stop and think about it, I’m not sure how to answer this. Technically, we have been living together for 4 years, but we’ve always had other roommates as well, while we’ve been going to school. Our roommate moved out last year, so we found a smaller place for just the two of us, and he proposed about 3 months after that. So I guess it depends on how you define “living together”… We had 3 years with “chaperones” haha!

    I believe it was pretty much exactly a year. Maybe a few days more. We moved in together after dating for two months. I was supposed to just be staying with him while looking for a job, but we ended up getting a bigger apartment 6 months later and he proposed a year later!

    • Wedding: July 2010

    We started dating in high school, did long distance for college, and moved in together when I started grad school immediately after.  We lived together for 2 years before getting engaged, and will almost be 3 before the wedding.

    I think my mother would have liked us to move a bit faster, but we wanted to be sure that, after all these years, it was really right and not just convenient.

    Let’s see…  

    Met October 2006, didn’t take our dating seriously until Feb 2007, moved in July 2007, engaged in Jan 2009, married Sept 2009.

    So the whole thing start to “finish” was only 3 years.  Moved in to engaged took a year and a half.  

    If I had to guess with you, maggierose, I would say your wait won’t be very long at all!  ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Not at all. But mostly because we’re in a LDR. I’m in school and he works full time.

    We officially moved in together after we got engaged.  We lived together for a summer right after we started dating, but I don’t count that.  

    We moved in together for real about three months after we got engaged.  That’s when both of our leases were up and we each moved from our separate places into a place of our own.
