In your opinion how long should a couple be together before they move in together? Get married? Have children?

It depends on the couple. My first husband and I didn't live together until we were married.  My DH and I, his stuff migrated to my apartment after about 3 dates, then we moved in together 3 months later.  13 years later, we are still together.

It depends on the people. Everyone is ready at different times.

DH and I were together everyday, after 3 months he asked me to marry him, 3 months after that we were living together. And 4 months after THAT we were making plans for baby #1, we wanted a baby right away. It happened a little quicker than we thought it would, so I was 3 months pregnant when we got married




save the date

I agree it depends on the couple. My dh and I were dating for a month, got engaged and 5 months later we were married. We didn't have children for a couple years but that's only because that's when I got pregnant. We wanted children sooner but it didn't happen.

I have no good answer, I do think that they should both mutually respect one another before living together.

Whenever the time is right for them.

I moved in with DH about a month into our relationship.  He proposed about 3 months into our relationship, and we married about 9 months into our relationship.  7 years later, we're still going strong.  :)

Depends. Of course i think it would be greqt for a couple to take their time to get to know.each other and all but it just depends. My husband and I moved in after 2 weeks and then got engaged 5 months later then married 3 months after that.
