When would one use, "vivre," and when,

I see the problem in English because here you only realistically have "to live" as a translation for both French verbs. "Vivre" is to live and "habiter" is more like to reside, i.e., where your place of residence is. Hardly any difference at all and, to me, virtual synonyms. -- Chris.

Excellent link. Thanks!
