I agree that it depends on the couple. Brandon and I didnt live together until we hit our one year anni, of course if situations were different Im sure we would have lived together. We had a rough start when we first moved in together, but were doing very well.

Yes, I do.

Jesse and I were together for 1 month shy of 2 years when we got married in Jan '08 and we didn't move in together until March '08. That was so rough, we didn't really get what it would be like to live with each other. It's been hard on both of us to adjust.

I think there are some benefits, but I'm glad we didn't move in together before we got married. Then again, we had the huge advantage of living very close by in college. For three years, we were always living in the same building, so we were together all the time. We also grocery shopped together. So I definitely think there are benefits such as learning how to budget time and money, and see what you are like together 24/7 in a normal day to day setting!

Thanks to cavewoman for my adorable siggy!
