|2.||common law fiance|
When a couple has been "dating" for such a long time that they are on an inevitable path to marriage, the participants in the relationship become common law fiancés, even if no formal commitment to get married has been made. Often, the involved parties deny this de facto status, frequently out of fear of commitment or embarrassment over not taking their relationship to the next level. However, they usually conduct themselves like a typical engaged couple (e.g., sharing holidays with both sets of families, etc.)

Tyrone and Brie Ann are good examples. They live together by common law so they can get all of the perks of the American system: free kids, free food via food stamps, health care, Pell grants for education, project housing, etc.
Tyrone is absent most of the time because he has three other women with whom he lives under similar arrangements. Tyrone's bitches are making a goodly income even if Brie Ann's quints are surrogate and somebody else got the government stipend. Brie Ann comes up missing periodically and it is not clear if there are other men in her life.
