Your question was: When does a couple gen move in together?.
I dont know because I have not lived with a man...only been married and divorced twice. And both of those times I moved in with the man about one month before the wedding. Hopefully some other posters can be of help to you...
I don't know if there is a subtle way to bring this up. If the two of you are close, why not be direct? Just ask what his thoughts are on living together without asking about a time frame.My SO & I have talked about living together "in the future" but we both have some things that we need to work out before this can happen. I still have a teenage boy at home and my SO needs to get his divorce finalized before we can seriously talk about *when* to move in together. Fortunately for us there is no driving force for us to live together other than the desire to be together more..
See *very detailed* post to your same thread on Mr Answer Man. ;-) .
And, I will add here << I don't want to be pushy, but how would I bring this up in a suttle way? >> ... this isn't something to be discussed in a 'subtle way' ... it's a big decision. You have to make sure AHEAD OF TIME that you both have mutually agreed upon expectations. ..
You can use the dogs, lightly as in, gee the dogs are starting to feel more comfortable at your place than at mine. You can also say the difficulty being together during the week part as well due to dogs and see where that goes..
The two of you are exclusive but has there been any talk of where this might lead?.
