  • Wedding: June 2014

We met in June and he moved into my apt around Nov. We got engaged after 7 years and got married on our 8 year anniversary. Some things moved faster than others lol.

Mslannister:  About a week and a half. Although we were best friends before becoming a couple so it’s not like we were strangers plus I used to crash at his place all the time (and vice versa) when we were just BFFs so nothing really changed. We’re not currently living together anymore (nothing to do with us or our relationship – I’m helping my mother out) but I honestly feel like you never truly know someone until you live with them. So many people I know struggle in their first year of marriage because they didn’t know what to expect or what their SO was like to live with.

We aren’t sure when it’ll happen, and we will have been together for 3 years by April. I am honestly jealous of all you Bees who moved in together within a year; DBF and I would have done it within that timeframe if we could, as we knew what we wanted from the start. But since I was 17 and he was 16 when we became a couple, it wasn’t the most practical idea at the time, and it still isn’t, unfortunately.

So we did it completely opposite.  I live with my brother and he had a roommate  (FI). We hung out all the time and worked out together and eventually decided to start dating. Prior to us dating though he had applied to be an officer in the navy so he was going through that process that took him a few years but then it just so happened that they decided they were going to take him the week of our first vacation together. We were able to go because they extended it for the next class. He left for 3 months came back and moved to California.  Since then we have been doing this long distance relationship/ deployment.  He proposed to me prior to him leaving for his 7 month deployment.  So yea instead of dating, getting engaged,  then married we did it all backwards. Lived together,  moved apart, got engaged,  will be married, live separate for a while, and than finally we will move back in together.
