2. You’re out of the Honeymoon Phase

Being out of the honeymoon phase is essential if you’re thinking of moving in together. The honeymoon phase doesn’t always have a specific time limit, but it’s usually anytime within the six months to one year mark of a relationship.

If you feel you’re still in the early part of your relationship – or the honeymoon phase – you may want to hold off on signing that lease together.
