I'm curious of everyone's thoughts of moving in with your mate before marriage. Any personal experiences? For myself, Tim & I are moving in together in July. My lease is up at the end of the July & we've decided that it would be easier to move through out the month instead of a couple of days. It's a huge step for us. It will soon be a year together & I can see us being together for the long haul. I think that living together will make us face the reality of what it's like for the future. If we can't live together, than in reality....we can't be together. We do great now...we spend 5 evenings a week together & 3 overnights. On the weekends, he's working but we spend those evenings together. We have set nights apart & it works great for us, but I don't think it's necessary. We have yet to have a fight. We have had calm discussions about things that might have upset each other but never a screaming fight. I'm sure we'll have one eventually but we're good about talking things out before it gets to that point. Our families are ok with the ideas of us moving in together. Tim & I had lived with our previous bf/gf in the past. We know the things that we need to work on & the things that we do good. We're hoping that we can succeed at this adventure & keep moving on towards the next. So.....I'm stoked about moving! I won't be in this apartment anymore & we will finally have a place to call "ours" instead of "mine".
