    • Wedding: May 2014

    We moved in with each other after getting engaged, but we are no traditionalists, not by a long shot! It was long distance and we met online so we spoke to each other for about 9 months in which we fell in love pretty quickly, we officially started dating when we met and then a month later got engaged; 3 months later we moved in with each other.

    We went flatting together with another couple after we’d been dating for 5 months – it didn’t work out and at 6 months of dating we got our own apartment. We’ve been together for 3.5 years but haven’t lived together the entire time; we did 9 months of long distance in 2012 and will be long distance for all of 2014.

    We moved in after 7 months of dating. We did it in traditional order, I suppose.

    Start dating

    Move in together

    Get engaged

    Get married

    • Wedding: July 2014

    We were living together when we finally made our relationship official and before that we were FWB who lived together (and where before we lived together) 

    So we certainly didn’t do it the ‘traditional’ way.

    I knew that I wanted to live together before getting engaged. Living together throws a lot of curveballs at a relationship and I wanted to be sure we could deal with eachother! Moved in together after 8 months, engaged awhile later.

    • Wedding: September 2016

    I used to live with SO out of convenience. I know that sounds bad, but my residence contract at my abroad University ended and he offered me a place to stay until my visa expired and I had to go back to Canada, so we lived together. I moved in about 2 1/2 months after we started officially dating and moved out 3 months later to go back to my home country.

    We’ve been long distance ever since, and we’ve been in a relationship for 2 years. I am moving in with him for good in September of this year (we are unofficially engaged now) and will be getting married in summer 2016.

    • Wedding: November 2014

    Only knew each other a few months before moving in together. 

    We met on match.com in August of 2011, moved in together November 2011 only 3 months after our first date. We’ve been living together ever since, engaged September 2013, and we will be married November 2014 🙂

    • Wedding: June 2015

    Our situation was [to people that didn’t know us] quite insane. We dated for 8 months starting in October of my 12th grade year. He had taken an extra year to “take extra courses” (aka see about making me his partner). Within 3 months we were picking universities to go to together, and within 5 months my parents were looking for a condo for us in our chosen university town. We officially moved in together just shy of 10 months of dating, at the tender ages of 18. Fast forward 3 years and almost an entire BA/B of Science later, we’ve been together 3 and a half years and are now engaged. We are both at the top of our classes and living together is the easiest thing I’ve ever done. We share chores, have a joint bank account through which we manage all of our expenses, and are looking foward to our wedding in March of 2015, right after I graduate with Honours!
