Moving on to today's topic.
Lately the big "living together" topic has been frequenting our happy home and Im super curious to hear other lady's opinions on this topic.
Ive always known that I wanted Chris and I to live seperately when he returned to Houston because I think its going to take a little adjusting for both of us. I mean this in a good way of course. For the majority of our relationship Houston has been my city and he has been an out-of-towner! With that comes the fact that we havent done the whole staying at eachother's places during the middle of the week, balancing work with us time and so forth. During the week we concentrate on work and Thursday-Monday morning we are together for us time. I have no doubt that this move is going to be everything I dreamt it would be, its just going to take adjusting for both of us and I think for at least the first 6 months that adjusting is going to be easier in our own homes. I will remain in my house with my roomies and Chris will have an apt here.
The question is when do we take the plunge? I honestly think Chris would move whenever I said I was ready, but Im not so quick to make that decision. I genuinely believe this has a LOT to do with my past. I lived with my college sweetheart after 3 years of dating and it ended with us going our own ways. I will never say that living together is the reason we split, but I do believe the fact that we were SO young and underestimated the commitment was a HUGE contributor to relationship ending. God had other plans for me and I thankful he did!
I know this is a very different relationship and that I am a VERY different person now, but I still have anxiety about the whole "living together" step. My anxiety comes with the idea of messing up this good thing. We are so happy right now and the thought that making this step at the wrong time could ruin it, scares the living day lights of me! I've said a thousand times that I absolutley WILL live with my significant other before marrying them and I absolutely plan to, I just want it to be a the right time.
So my question to you, is when did you take the plunge and move in with your love? Personally I would prefer to be engaged prior to living together and then moving in during the whole wedding planning process. Im just curious to hear what worked for you and what was disasterous. I know everyone's different but I like to hear other's opinions and experiences.
So shoot! Tell me everything you've got!
And then go hear Katie's take on marriage! It goes hand in hand with my relationship questions today and the Lord knows Ive asked him and everyone else that a time or two!
