Just wondering when in your relationship you guys started to send joint X-mas cards. FI and I have been together 4 years. Two of those we lived together(dating but not engaged) but didn’t send out X-mas cards. Now we are engaged but in a LDR for six more months. Is it weird to sent X-mas cards from “us” to extended family ect? When did you and your SO start sending out X-mas cards?

I think you should send out Christmas cards! I was with my boyfriend for 3 years and sent out cards, then 2 years later we got engaged, I still send out cards – we have been together 8 years now – still not married, but we are in eachothers lives every single day. It’s a medical insurance issue why we are not married – I say send out the cards!!

@MissBridge: We’re living together but not engaged and will be sending out Xmas cards together this year for the first time. (To be fair, last year at Christmas we’d only been together a few months.) I think it’s fine to send them together if you live together or are engaged.
ETA: I’m not sure how my super-Christian cousins are going to feel about getting a Christmas card signed by a couple “living in sin”, but I don’t really care 😛

@MissBridge: I guess it depends- every relationship is so different. Some people get married or start living together/get engaged after 1 month, so I think in that case they should sent out cards together! I definitely think you and your SO should!! We have been together 4 years, married last year but don’t send out Christmas cards- we are too busy with our toddler and second baby on the way!

@MissBridge: We sent them out when we started living together.
