  • I'm 36 and I live with my so. We are getting married in June. My mom treats us like shit because we "live in sin" but I tell u what, you won't find a nicer man or a better step-dad!

  • I would never get married before living together. I think it is a very important step in you relationship. You learn so much about each other. My boyfriend and I have been living together for 2 years, and now I think we are ready to settle down and get engaged. If were not planning for the baby, I am pretty sure we would be planning a wedding. Living together is so importnant. I suggest it for any couple.

  • Dh and i lived together for almost 2 years before we got married. So of course I dont have anything against it.

  • I started dating my DH when we were 15, when we were 17 his mother moved in with a man who said her "adult" son couldnt move in with them, so she moved in leaving my DH to fend for himself. He was still in High school, so my dad let him live with us to continue school. So ya we shared a room. We lived together for 2 years (in my parents house) then got married at 19 and been married 6 yrs in june. I think it's always a good thing to live with your SO before the wedding. What if he keeps a trash bag full of old toenail clipping or dead hair? you're def gonna want to know this before you move your stuff into the closet.

  • I did it. I personally feel like it's a great idea. I knew exactly who I was marrying. There are things you cannot possibly know about a person until you live with them.

  • I personally don't feel it is the best idea, but to each their own.
