What is the difference between “同居どうきょ(doukyo) and 同棲どうせい(dousei)”? Which is used for living together with a partner? Which is used as a meaning of “I agree”? After reading this, you would be answering this question. Let me introduce what their subtle differences are and how you correctly use them such as native speakers today!

同居どうきょ(doukyo) / 同棲どうせい(dousei)” mean “live together” and which has been used as the meaning of “to share a home”. The basic way to use it is “わたしは___と同居どうきょ/同棲どうせいする。(I live together with ___)”, etc. The tips for using them are that although they are the same meaning, they are different from each other. “同居どうきょ” means “to live together with people except for a partner” and “同棲どうせい” means “to live together with a PARTNER(BOYFRIEND or GIRLFRIEND)”. That’s what the difference between them. For instance, “わたし友達ともだち同居どうきょする。(I live together with my friends.)”, “わたしおや同居どうきょする。(I live together with my parents.)”, etc. Whereas “わたし彼女かのじょ同棲どうせいする。(I live together with my girlfriend.)” or “わたし彼氏かれし同棲どうせいする。(I live together with my boyfriend.)”. Thus, “同棲どうせい” can be used only with “彼女かのじょ” or “彼氏かれし” which means they don’t still get married. Everybody could use “同居どうきょ/同棲どうせい” as casual, polite and formal such as “おや同居どうきょしてるよ。(I live together with my parents.)” as casual and “おや同居どうきょしてます。(I live together with my parents.)” as polite and formal. And “彼女かのじょ/彼氏かれし同棲どうせいしてるよ。(I live together with my girlfriend/boyfriend.)” as casual and “彼女かのじょ/彼氏かれし同棲どうせいしてます。(I live together with my girlfriend/boyfriend.)” as polite and formal. The easier way to say these is “___と一緒いっしょんでます。” which also everybody could use as casual, polite and formal.
