Prolly when they feel comfortable with each other and are ready for it. I wouldn't set a certain amount of time, everyone is different (relationships too).

Whenever they decide to do so. I know people who have been together for more than ten years and still don't live together.

I'm moving in with my girlfriend of a year. We only waited this long because she was in college and I'm done. It really depends on where you are in life.

It varies on the couple... weeks/month/years. It all depends what level of trust and comfort you have with the person and how naturally the relationship progresses.

I know many people who move in immediately. Lately that seems to be in style, at least in my area it is. For some reason, there's a lot of pressure on a woman (and men, but speaking from my own experience) to move out with a partner immediately and have children. It seems that women are looked down on if they take it slow, again that's speaking from my own recent experience. I was at my OB/GYN last month and was "lectured" by a nurse about still being at home and not moved out, with children. She didn't seem to care that I had a strong opinion and plan for my life and that until my partner and I finish school and get married, we don't plan to move out. She was very unhappy with my decision. I however, think that there is not set time for anybody to move out together. It's strictly up to the couple, when they are totally ready. I for one, want to finish school and start further into my career, and marry him before doing so. That is very unaccepted in my area at the moment. I also am only 21 years old! What is so wrong with just waiting?

I have seen a lot of bad results with couples who move out before knowing each other's last name. I've also seen couples move in together quickly and have an amazing relationship. I have responsibilities at home and cannot just up and leave children and a home whom I care for.

I would definitely say it needs to be thought through very carefully. It is a big decision. I also would not let others pressure you into it.
