    I’ve been living with Fiance 13 months in an apt. When I say home, I mean my parents house and refer our place as the apt. I’ve always loved the quote home is where the mom is!!! I guess when I become a mom that’s when things will change lol

    I have never lived in my parents last 2 homes ( I last lived with them 15 years ago)- so I only think of MY house as home.

    “Our home” is our apartment together. When I talk about “going back home” I mean our hometown. I have always considered the place that I live to be “home”… My parents house, my dorm, my apartment, my apartment, my apartment (you get the idea), our apartment.

    I need multiple options.  I consider the unit where I live with FH as home … but I also consider my parents house in New Zealand (where I used to live before I moved to NZ) as home.  Sometimes I describe them as “home home and NZ home” 😛  I don’t think I’ll ever stop thinking of NZ as home even though I don’t live there any more, although when/if my parents ever leave that house it will be interesting to see if my thinking changes.  A piece of my heart will always be in NZ though.

    I may say something like, “back home at my parents…” but I definitely think of “home” as where I live with my fiance and puppy. That’s my home:)

    We are a military family and we always use the quote “home is whereever I’m with you.”

    Interesting! Until about 2 years ago, “I’m going home for the weekend” meant I was going to my parents’ house, but somewhere along the line, that changed…not exactly sure when! Now, our townhouse is home. 🙂

    My parents’ house will always be home. The apartment Fiance and I love and share? That’s home too. There is SO much love in both places and that’s what makes a home for me.

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  I called my apartment home, my parents house home, FIs apartment home. As they say, it’s where the heart is and I feel at home in many places.

    SO and I live in different countries for the rest of this year and I refer to New Zealand and my Mum’s house as ‘home’.

    When SO and I lived together I referred to our house as ‘home’.

    I’m 32 and still don’t feel like I have a home 🙁 Maybe when I finally can buy a house I’ll have somewhere to call “home”….

    We are still renting an apartment so I see my moms house as HOME because I know it will always be there for me. Until we buy our own home, I don’t see it being any different for me.

    The first apartment I moved to was “home” for me. Home is where my stuff/pets/bed is. now Fiance and I share a “home.”

    never did understand why people referred to their parents’ house as “home” when they were no longer living there, to be honest.
