We were together 8 months when he moved in. Our wedding was 2 months later – there’s no way I would have lived together without being engaged with a wedding date set in stone. And neither would he. He hemmed and hawed about moving in 2 months before the wedding, but it was the only weekend we had free, so we went ahead and did it.

We dated for 3 months before moving in together, but we’ve known eachother and been very close friends for almost 5 years. I had a ring 9 months later and our wedding is planned for Oct 2013- by that time we will have been dating for 20 months.

See, I think this is the entire problem. Why should you or anyone else get to determine the seriousness of anyone’s relationship? That’s why everyone should get a plus-one. That way there is no confusion, no decisions to make, no hurt feelings. Your guests deserve to be treated the way you would want to be treated.

We didn’t move in together til about a month or so before the wedding, so I voted “after marriage.” We had been together for 3 1/2 years.
It wasn’t because we didn’t want to, circumstances just didn’t work out for us. I’m sure if things were different we might have.

Four years for us! We got invited as a couple after two years together. Before that we were, XX and Guest. I was always good to stay out of pictures if FH was in a wedding and vice versa.

- Wedding: March 2014 - Brazil Room
Almost 4 years by the time he moved in to my place. I marked the 2 – 3 years on the poll because it was like 3.8 years 😉
We should be getting engaged next month a little over our 4 year mark.

I officially moved in at 5 months. Unofficially….the third date!
He didn’t want me to leave and I didn’t want to go. I did spend maybe 2 nights away in the first 6 weeks because I was worried he would feel smothered, even though it was his own doing lol.
We bought a condo together that November, around the 10 month mark and were engaged 7 months later.

We didn’t live together until after we were married.

We were weird. We dated long distance for about 2 years and then almost IMMEDIATELY moved in together when he moved north to be with me. So we went from LDR to super close quarters.

I voted less than 2 months. We met March 28, 2011, were officially exclusive April 14, 2011, I moved in at the end of April/beginning of May 2011. He proposed 8 months later and the wedding is the day before our 2 year dating anniversary. I definitely think it’s different for every person and every relationship, but we started talking about long term in the first two weeks of dating and I was constantly at his house after date 1. It was just…right. We were right for each other and the timing was right.

We officially moved in together after 2 years, but he was basically living at my old apartment before that.

We are having a small wedding so yes we needed to determine what we considered serious. Its not like we called people up & said sorry your man can’t come bc xyz. It hasn’t been an issue at all. My cousin has a different bf every time we see her she isn’t getting a plus one & totally understands. If we were having a huge wedding it would be different. Fi went to a small wedding a few years ago without me bc there were very few plus ones. I wasn’t hurt at all, I even contributed to the cash he gave.

I didn’t vote, because we’ve been together four and a half years and I just moved in on Feb 1.
Edit: I would be offended if he or I were invited to a major event alone. But before I moved to his town, while I was still in college, I wouldn’t have been offended even though we’d been together 1-3 years because we weren’t as much of a unit. Once we started living in the same town and spending most of our time together, I saw us as a social unit.
