hakunamatata:  If I’m reading correctly and you’re leaving in July because you’ll be moving, you really don’t have anything to worry about. I’d give the standard two weeks notice with the explanation that you’re moving. It’s best to include all job experiences on a resume, otherwise if a potential employer found out about it, they might think you were trying to hide it for a reason. You have a very valid reason for leaving–you’re moving. If anyone asks why your time with your current employer was so short, that’s exactly what you tell them–the truth. You moved because of your fiance’s job. I think you’ll be fine.

hakunamatata:  I agree w/the PP – you have a conpletely valid reason. I would maybe give your boss a heads up (if he/she and you have a good relationship) but not officially resign until then. I dont think it will hurt you at all – and if future employers ask – you simply tell them that you moved 3 hours to stay with your FI.

I don’t think I would say that I moved to stay with my FI.

I would say that my FI was required to move to a new city for his job. That way it sounds less like the move was a choice that the two of you made and more like something you were unable to anticipate.
