I was thinking once my boyfriend and I get engaged which is going to be within 2 or 3 years that we should get a place and live together until our wedding. Has anyone done that? My friend is engaged and getting married in march and they have had a place since last year. I'm not ready to move in now since we both have to handle some bills before we can enter into living together. But I think when we are ready to start fresh and that at least being engaged is nice.

I'm a little curious as to how you know that you will be engaged in 2 to 3 years?
Besides that, to answer the question if engaged people should live together first, my response is yes! Having been there done that, I strongly suggest the couple to live together first. Also, it would be very wise to keep 3 bank accounts. One account for yourself, one account for himself and one account together for the house bills. Majority of fights start with money, this way, you keep your own money as does he and you have one joint account to take care of the house bills 50/50. So if he goes out and buys a new car with is money. You know what. Its his money you can't get mad! And if you decide to go out and buy new outfits. He can't get mad! Its your money!2
