inspired by the sister in law. what do you think the appropriate amount of time would be before moving in with someone you're in a relationship and what are the pros and cons of doing so?

After a minimum one year courtship culminating in marriage. NOT BEFORE - TOOOOO MANY PROBLEMS!

There are a gazillion factors that go into that decision. Age, maturity, comfort level for each person, degree of commitment, attitudes about commitment, financial status are just the first few that immediately come to mind.

The pros and cons are personal - different for each couple. My opinion is don't expect it to lead to marriage, don't expect to know what marriage will be like after. Sex is sex, you either work or you don't. You don't need to live together for that.

Whenever you both feel ready. Could be months, could be years

Why does there need to be a set time frame? When both people are comfortable with that decision, it's probably ok.

I used to put it at around the 6 month mark, but lately I'm starting to wonder if it makes sense to wait until marriage. Without the legal backing, one party is guaranteed to get screwed in the event of a breakup.

Right after the marriage vows.

Daisy and I were together for 2.5 years before we moved in together... But that's us. Every couple is different.

they've been together 8 years and live separately.

I'd be more comfortable with 3+years. but like you Said, every couple is different.

As soon as you're married.

My vote may be the minority but I'm a traditional wait until marriage guy.

I remind my husband that I am the NAG he made me when we got married. Before that I was a happy NAH. ;)
