- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
Or if you moved in together before getting married, who moved in with who and why?
I moved in with Mr. Bee after we got engaged because I moved to New York from Los Angeles. But it didn’t really feel like it was "our place" until we finally moved to a new apartment together. What about you guys?

He will be moving in with me! 🙂 He is relocating from Illinois to Michigan. The nice thing is that when I moved into this apartment, I was moving from my parents house so I didn’t have anything but hand-me-downs. We both have bought things together over the past few years so that it’s not just "mine". We recently bought a new bedroom set we picked out together, lamps, all kinds of fun things. So I think the transition will go a little more smoothly.

I moved in w/ him 4 mos before the wedding. His house is smaller, but it is closer to work and worth more. Luckily, we were able to rent mine out with a 2 year contract! So, now we’re putting that extra $ towards the wedding & my car loan…next, we’ll try to get my student loans gone before babies! <crosses fingers that renter continues to work out>

We actually bought a house together in February of this year, moved in in May and then got engaged in November. Which was a little backwards I guess.
But before that, I moved in with him. His apartment was bigger. And in a better area. And closer to Boston…

We moved in to a new place together a little over 2 years ago. We were each living in a different neighborhood in Chicago (Uptown and Bucktown), and ended up in East Village/River West because we preferred that location.

My husband and I initally moved into together when he accepted a new job and we had to relocate to Chicago. So it has always been "our" place.

Before getting married, I moved in with him for a month or two until we found our own new apartment! (He’d had a roommate before so it was impractical and impossible to stay there)

I moved in with him because I had a tiny studio and he had a big two bedroom apartment 🙂 It took awhile for it to feel like home, but it definitely does now!

I moved in with my husband because I just relocated from Georgia to California earlier the year. I was still kind of feeling it’s not ‘our place’ but that got better when we picked out and decorated our first Christmas tree together this past holiday season. I guess as I decorate the place more, it’ll slowly feel more like our home.

- Wedding: March 2009 - Byodo-In Temple, Luau Reception
When Mr. Sushi were dating (pre-engagement), I lived in a 1 bedroom apartment by myself and Mr. Sushi was residing with his mother (he had just moved back home a few months before we started dating). About a year and a half into our relationship I moved in with him and his mom (yikes!) so I could save some $$. Six months later I bought a condo. Mr. Sushi went condo shopping with me, but at the time we wern’t sure if he was going to move in with me or not. Welp, he did. So the mortgage is in my name, but we’ve both lived there together since day one.

My fiance moved in with me a year before we got engaged (but after 6 years of dating). I had the two bedroom condo and so it made the most sense. We still live there but are looking to buy a condo in the next year or so (hopefully by the time we get married in October!)

I moved in with my fiance because he owned his condo whereas I was still renting … We had been dating for a little over a year at the time, which we both thought was a little soon, but it was either then – or we would have to wait another year because of me signing a lease.
About a year after I moved in we were talking and he said to me "Could you imagine if we waited until now to live together?!?! I’m so glad we didn’t wait!" And then he proposed about a month after that!! I think we had one of those situations where we just "knew" … we were also friends for 4 years before we started dating so we knew a lot about each other before we started to date.

I am not married yet (only 341 days…but whose counting?!) but my FH and I moved in the same week we got engaged! It worked perfectly…I graduated school (Michigan State!! woohoo) and got a job and his lease was up so timing worked with us!

I moved in with him for 2 months during the summer 3 years ago….now he’s moving in with me when he gets out. Only b/c i’ve been paying our house mortgage in the meantime! I’ll have been here for about 1.5 years, holding down the fort, by the time he gets out of the army
