6 1/2 years. We were in an LDR up until then. We saw each other on the weekends, or every other weekend. It wasn’t until I was done with my MS that we could finally live together.

I refused to move in and give up my apt with out a ring! He proposed 15 months after meeting and I moved in shortly after that.

Honestly, I sort of started moving in a month and a half after we became official, then we went away together for the holidays and he met my family and we first said I love you. A couple weeks after that he said I might as well stop spending money on rent for my apartment (in which I shared a bedroom) and was spending as little time at as possible. Generally I wouldn’t recommend this approach lol, but it felt right, we didn’t like living half an hour apart, and now we’ve been married almost 5 months, living together almost 3 years ๐Ÿ™‚

About 5 months after we started dating, I moved in with him. It just kind of happened. I never wanted to go home and he never wanted me to leave, so we just made it official ๐Ÿ™‚ Almost 2 years later we’re engaged.

Mslannister:  we were together for 9 years before moving in, 7 months before the wedding which was also our 10 year anniversary. We waited until we were engaged.

Some of you ladies have balls of steel! I’m hyperventaling a little bit just thinking about moving in with someone before the two year mark. Good for you having the nerve!

Mslannister:  We moved in together after about eight months.  We were basically living together after five months.  We each had a traumatic event occur during our first 6 months of dating, I think that brought us really close very fast.  We were engaged about a month after our first year anniversary.  Our timeline seemed fast, but when you know you just know.

We moved in together after agreeing on a timeline for getting engaged and married. It turned out to be that I moved into his home 7 months after we started dating, we got engaged at almost one year after our first date, and married 17 months after our first date.

I think around 6 months…. Honestly, I have no regrets. It worked out perfectly for us, and it just felt right. There were no problems adjusting for me at all. 

But it;s definitely not the right choice for everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

DH and I were in a long distance relationship for about 9 months before he found a job in my state and moved in with me.  We wouldn’t normally move in with another person that quickly, but we knew early on that things were serious and after traveling to each other’s states every couple of months, we just couldn’t bear not being with each other physically.

We were together 3 and a half years when we got married and moved in together! Living with someone before marriage was out of the question for both of us and it’s the best decision we ever made!

DH and I moved in together about 10 months into our relationship. We were engaged about a year later and married a year after that! We didn’t seriously discuss an engagement prior to moving in together, and it honestly didn’t even occur to me that I should. I’d been spending most of my nights with him since fairly early on in our relationship so it seemed silly to keep living apart when my place was more of a pitstop to grab new clothes each week. ๐Ÿ™‚

After 5 months, officially sharing the same address, but we were already staying at each other’s place 90% of the time. We lived in different cities when we met, a 3 hours driving distance to each other and we didn’t want a LDR, neither did we want to only see each other once a week or less. Our work schedules were flexible as a student (me) and a freelance (him), so we spent the week at his place and weekends at my place, until we found an appartment we both liked and moved in together. We got engaged months later.
