I just wanted to see if you had any experiences to share about waiting to move in with your Fiance until after you are married!
I am Catholic and my sweet fiance is a pretty serious (converted) Catholic. We are waiting to move in together until after we are married and we actually don’t even do sleepovers. I’m happy with all of this *but* I find that it actually makes it really hard to get enough quality time together. I usually get off work around 7pm, have to take public transit home, and at that point I don’t have it in me to drive over to his place just to be there for half an hour. The same applies for him. One thing is for sure – I really can’t wait to be married so we can get all our together time!
How about you? Any stories? Any perks I should look forward to?

We also waited until we were married before moving in together. Unfortunatley I was still at uni when we married so we moved in with my grandfather to save for a mortgage, It was NOT a good idea and the most stressful time ever. On the up side I know if we got that we can get through anything. We now have our own home together and our first little baby is 11 weeks old 🙂 Happily ever after! Well done on waiting, I’m sure it will make the wedding etc much more exciting.

Yeah, definitely do not move in together until you are married. My fiance and I are both Catholic and both very serious about our faith and will be waiting to move in after our wedding as well. Yes it is hard (my fiance lives 2 hours away) but marriage is a beautiful sacrament and waiting will be worth it! There are sacramental graces that come through marriage – so maybe try doing other things when you can’t see each other often, like fast for each other. My fiance and I both fast on Wednesdays and use that as a fast for our relationship and for each other. It is amazing how close we have grown, 2 hours apart, but through fasting.
When my fiance lived closer, we also had opposite schedules so we would do things like wake up at 6 am and grab breakfast or coffee before work when we knew that we couldn’t see each other that day.
Pray pray pray – the Catholic faith is a beautiful thing.

Fiance and I are also waiting to live together until we’re married. I am so excited! Fiance currently lives 30 minutes away so we don’t see each other a lot during the week because I work late nights a lot. It will be awesome when we can both go home to the same apartment and see each other every night. 🙂

I say the same thing to my Fiance all the time- it’s tough you’re not the only one!
My Fiance is a grad student and I work 40+ hours every week in addition to being a fulltime student. We live 30 min. from each other and do not see each other except on weekends sometimes.

AHHHHHHHH I am so happy to see you ladies who are in the same boat as me! Although we only live 5 minutes apart, we both work full time and go to school full time! He generally gets up works early and has school in the evening and i’m the opposite. I go to school in the morning and work in the evening. During the week If we do have free time we study “together” but since our majors are different we can’t help each other we’re just next to each other. I work weekends and he doesn’t so those are limited too! I can’t wait for the day I can curl up on the couch with him and not have to worry about going home!

It is so good to hear from all you ladies who are in a similar position! I guess we can just think of it as that much more to look forward to!
