Moving in together is generally for people who are afraid of committment. If a couple is truly committed to each other, why not get married? Well, some of us wanted to take the time to plan the wedding we wanted to have, so we moved in together first, and got married later. In our case, both DH and I would have needed roommates when I moved up to the Boston area at about the same time he was moving out of his mother's apartment, so it made financial sense for us to move in together. We got married about a year and a half later, but in that time, we were able to save up for a downpayment and buy our first house as well as plan and save for our wedding, which we paid for ourselves.I'd agree that I wouldn't move in with someone I wasn't planning to marry, but if those are the plans, then I see no reason to wait if the couple doesn't want to.But I suppose we did it wrong since we lived together before we got married, and given the information in this thread, that must mean we're headed for divorce. I don't suppose the 24 years we've been married counts for much.
