15 months in, on the same day we got engaged. We originally didn’t plan for it to go like that, but we decided we didn’t want to wait out our original timeline. I’m 25 and he’s 27.

6 months for us! I was 25 and he was almost 29 at the time (26 and 30 now).

We both had apartments and then just decided it was silly each of us living in our own apartments (we didn’t have roommates, just a cat each!) so we bought a house together. After 6 months. It’s been great so far! Got engaged this past July. Been together two years as of last week. Been living together a year and a half 🙂

michik :  we moved in together after 2 months. It would have been sooner, but I didn’t transfer offices (different states) until the end of the year. We have known each other for 10 years though and we’ve been close friends. Everyone is different and different timelines work for different relationships 🙂

michik :  we met when we were 18 & 19 and moved in together 6 months later due to my abusive/ controlling parents. We’ve now been together for almost 3 years and have lived together for 2.5. Would I have moved in that early had there not been unforseen circumstances? No. But it worked for us and we’ve been inseparable since the day we met so I’d never change a thing<3

We moved in pretty much from day 1. I lived with him for 6 months, then long distance for a year. After that he moved to my country and we’ve lived together every since and got married recently. 

It all worked out but I wouldn’t recommend moving in from day 1 to be honest!

He moved in with me after about 10 months of dating. We had just gotten engaged. He had a health emergency that meant that he wasn’t allowed to drive for a few months.  He owned his condo and I just rented but he worked from home and lived over an hour from my workplace so he moved into my place. 

He was 36 and I was 31.

I was 24, he was 28. We moved in together after 3 months (he had to move for work and I went with him, 25 hours from friends and family… we learned a lot about each other pretty quick). 

We got engaged after 11 months, bought a house at 13 months together then married on our 2nd anniversary of being together. 

6 years, 2 kids, dog and house later and we love our life. Our marriage isn’t perfect, but in my opinion it’s pretty close.

Three years—- although because of my job we still love apart half the time after being married.

My guy and I dated from 17 to 20 (he’s a year and a half older than I am) but were always each others’ ones that got away. We got back into contact when I was 25, and after picking him up from the airport after a month away I basically only went home to do laundry for another 8 months before moving in with him.

We moved in together after 3 months. 

The catalyst was  my kitty. He would get seperation anxiety when I would stay over at my SO’s place.

I was 21 and he was 26. Over 5 years later and things are going pretty well! We got engaged last year. 🙂

We moved in after nine months (I was 24, he was 28). That also involved him moving to my new city, so the decision was made after maybe five months. It’s worked well for us.

We moved in together after 3 years of long distance, if he’d found a job in my area it might’ve been sooner.
