Do you treat a live-in SO like a husband?

My SO and I live together, I have a 4 yr old (not my so's) and I am pregnant with SO's baby. When it comes to decisions based on my exhusband, friends, etc. Do I treat my SO like my husband or just like my SO?

  • I have lived with my SO for over 8 years. We don't call each other husband and wife but we do treat each other that way. We discuss all major decisons together. Neither one of us are going anywhere.

    You do what you are most comfortable with. I think in time you will just fall into a routine and it will come natural.

  • My SO and I aren't married but we do call one another hubby and wife. We live as a married couple and Have since we have moved in together. His children are my step-children and our DD is just that. We will get married one day legal but we aren't in any hurry we know neither one of us is going anywhere. We will be together forever. We are one anothers sole mates and he is my best friend and I am his.

  • when u live together that usually happens because although your not married it seems that way. i been with my boyfriend for 6yrs and we have 2 children together.we dont talk about marriage or call each other husband and wife but everything else is like we are married.

  • Yes we treat each other as we are married in all aspects of our relationship and yes, we have lived together for 3 years but will be married in 2 years!! We always knew we were getting married though.

  • idk i think it depends on how serious the relationship is, then again if youre going to pretend and act like a married couple then you need to get married. i personally wouldnt make decisions with a live in boyfriend unless he was planning on marrying me.
