When you're officially dating someone, the questioning goes out the window. You've gone from being hesitant to make plans to being out and about together on a regular basis. When you become serious is dependent on the individual relationship. For some, it's after three months, while others find it happens after actually moving in together. And you really can't know until you just do it: have that "are we together?" conversation. A British relationship support organization called Relate.org.uk asked 6,000 people personal relationship questions, and found that one thing that really defines what makes a relationship "serious."

The conclusion? The survey discovered that 50 percent of the couples thought that "sharing problems" was the biggest indicator that things were getting serious.
Sharing problems is found to rank higher than "being exclusive," which came in at 44 percent and "getting married" which came in at 39 percent. It makes sense, considering when you're in a happy union, like a marriage or relationship, you discuss both the good and the bad things that occur in life in order to aid one another in overcoming them.
If you catch yourself rolling your eyes at your partner complaining about their work issues again, keep this in mind. It might actually bring you closer.
Do you find this true for the partnership you're in?
