So when is it the right time to move in together ? How long would you want to be with someone before you moved in together or should you only move in together when you are married or going to be married ? Any opinions on this. Reason I am asking is because I may be moving in with my girlfriend soon. I have been helping her father decorate a flat for her which is going to be her christmas present. I think she will ask me to move in there with her she knows i want to leave home. I dont think shed want to live on her own with her being deaf and all so im pretty sure shell ask me and if i do move in with her does that mean that her dad will expect me to marry her or something ?
