I was just wondering I know many won’t move in unless there is a pending engagement, I lived with my ex for about 10 months (2 of which we were broken up- weird I know).
I waited longer to officially move in with my SO and am very glad I didn’t rush things- previously I was desperate for financial help and needed a roommate more than a boyfriend (which didn’t work out anyway).
I posted this in home- I think that’s the right topic…?

Fiance was the only one I’ve ever lived with. We moved in together after 9 months, but didn’t get engaged until a little over 2 years after that. 🙂 I don’t know how, but we just “knew.” <– I know it’s cheesy.

I really do wish I hadn’t lived with my first boyfriend but I might have not ended up with my SO if I had gone another route… so I am thankful for the way my life has played out.

I lived with a boyfriend in universitY for about six months. I went away for school and we did long distance for a year and one day he came to visit and just didn’t leave. There was never any talk of There ever being a pending engagement and we basically lived as roommates that shared a bed and had sex. No merged finances or real long term planning.
MIT was different when I moved in with dh as it was clear an engagement would follow as soon as possible.

Darling Husband was the first man that I lived with romantically. I lived with another guy but he was a friend and it was not romantic

Darling Husband is the only person I’ve ever lived with romantically, although I’ve had more male roommates than female roommates I think. I just asked the same question of Darling Husband, as I don’t think this is something we’ve ever talked about, fully expecting the answer to be no, but the answer was yes! Duh, he was engaged once before me so I should have assumed but it just never occurred to me! Ah well, we’re laughing about it now and it doesn’t bother me, but I just can’t believe this has never come up in 3.5 years of being together!

I’ve had multitudes of roommates, both male and female; however, my fiance is the first person I’ve lived with that I was in a romantic relationship with. We were together almost 4 years before getting engaged, but moved in together after 5&1/2 months! I know it’s super corny, but we just kind of knew 🙂

Darling Husband is the only one I ever actually wanted to move in with. I moved away for grad school seven months into our relationship, and we were in a LDR for a year. When I came home, we moved in together. It just felt right.

I lived with my ex for almost the whole time we dated. We moved in after a couple months of dating and were together 5 years before I left him for my now Fiance.

I shouldn’t be posting on here probably, but Fiance is my first boyfriend! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

@nineteen87: The last 2 months that I lived with my ex, we were broken up as well and I also happened to be pregnant! (We broke up about 2 weeks before finding out I was pregnant.) Talk about and awkward situation!
My ex and I lived together for about 2 and a half years. I did wait longer to officially live with Fiance but a lot of that had to do with having a small child. We’ve been living together about a year and a half now.

Well, I lived with my ex-husband, so I guess that counts. And now Darling Husband. Thats it.

I’ve had other boyfriends, but Fiance was the first one I lived with (and we got engaged before moving in).

Darling Husband I lived with for 4 years before we got engaged.
