Well, for me it was before marriage, actually who said anything about marriage, lol. Ok, we have both been married 3 times, yep 3, so shortly after we met we knew we would be together, I moved 1600 miles to move in with him. We have been together 2 1/2 years, and going strong. But, neither of us are in any rush to go down that aisle again, and we are perfectly happy living together and we are faithful to the other.

True, we both work full time, and we share in the expenses of everyday living. And like you, as long as we are together and happy, that's all that matters.

I don't think there is an ideal time that would fit every couple. The choice needs to be up to the individuals involved. Some people wait until marriage and are perfectly comfortable and happy, others wait and discover too late that they are not at all compatible. The same goes for people who live together before marriage. They move in and find that everything is great or they may not get along well at all.

Yeah. there is really the perfect, (ideal) time that fits every couples needs and expectations. The choice is totally up to the individuals involved as they might have different views and opinions on situations like this! also i agree that people who move in before marriage find out everything that they need to know and learn weather or not that person is the right one to continue to have a future with!

1. Before marriage Hey you test drive a car before ya buy it don't ya? I know marriage shouldn't be compared to a car but my point is that you should see if you can both live with each others little habits people do everyday. -Amberina

LOLgood observatioin with test driving a car! lol.. its not the point but your right.. we can then entirely view ever aspect of that other person that we did not neccessarily fall in love with from the start! and Ill bet theres a million & one things we could learn after we told ourselves over and over again that we thought we knew them inside out. theres always lots to learn!

It depends on the couple. I've lived with an ex boyfriend who I had no intention of getting married too. We lived together because we wanted to be with each other. I'm living with my current boyfriend now for the last two years and it's a lot cheaper than living alone but I'm pretty sure I won't marry him either. For some people it's good to live with them before they make a permanent commitment because then you can really see what it's like to live with them.

I am from india and if i go by the indian culture then the right time would be after marriage but for you the more important thing would be how you feel about your partner. I mean mine waited for the right time because he believed i am his and he had the patience to wait for the right time. It is not an easy job especially when you are meeting often, this demands a lot of will power from both the partners.
