I am just curious to know how long you all dated your husband/SO before you lived together?

My DH and I were friends for 2 years, dated for a year, got engaged and moved in with each other about a month before the wedding.
I am curious to know how long you all dated before you "moved" in with one another?

  • We dated for a year before he moved in. He moved in just after his 18th birthday. We lived together a couple of months before we got married. We started dating June 17, 1996, he moved in June 21, 1997, and we were married September 6, 1997.

  • We met in college in 1990, engaged in 93, and married in 94.

    Due to my working 2 hours away from where he was finishing up his masters we didn't start living together until we were married a month.

  • Neither of my husbands lived with me before we got married. The first we were right out of high school, had the baby, waited 8 months and then got married. The second was a very quick thing.... dated and then went for an overnight trip and secretly got married.

  • well- after the first week or so, we were pretty much always together unless we were working- yes, at night too. I stayed at his sisters with him or he stayed at my house. My mom even let him move in (much to my shock) since he offered her 200 bucks a month if she'd let him
