I don't have any rules. My ex husband and I couldn't live together until we were married-Parents orders. We were young though at that point, I was pregnant, and we figured "Hey, next step-lets get married so we can live together!" Yeah, that didn't work out so hot.
I didn't live with anyone else (that I was dating) until I met my current hubby. I have kids from my previous marriage and it was very important that I not introduce my kids into a situation or relationship unless I KNEW it was going to be something serious.
Of course, with them living with their dad for a while, I allowed my (now husband) to move in with me after only a few months of dating. But we knew it was going to be long term. Guess itw as one of those gut things.
The kids met him about four months into the relationship and he has been great with them ever since. Kids adore him, we now have another daughter-together and things are good!
I would definitely say that it would depend on my living situation, the relationship and how well I knew the person though. If I had known about my ex husband BEFORE we moved in together, like I did AFTER we moved in together, I probably wouldn't have married his ass lol.
