We preferred to stay in our separate places until we got married - but I got a new job about 150 miles away several months before the wedding. She transferred to that city and we moved in together - about 2 months before the wedding.
I would live with someone before I decided to get married.
she lived in FL, and Im in CA. We knew each other for about 3 years..then decided to start dating. 6 months later she moved in with me in CA (her sister also moved in 3 months after that) and has lived here for about 2 years now.
Yes I have and plan to again,i dont feel the need for marriage.....i can love someone with out a piece of paper telling me I'm allowed,we will probably marry someday when it suits us but its not necessary
My partner of 4 years and I just moved in together a couple days ago and are loving it (although we spent so much time together it was almost like we were for a year before this ). We have no plans on getting married, I'm not a big fan of marriage.
