Usually referred to as a NAR.
Pronounced: gnar as in the first half of gnarly

Def: When 2 people are seeing one another on a regular basis for a lengthy amount of time they usually can be give the title. This couple will act as if they are in a relationship, but will not call each other “boyfriend/girlfriend,” but may use pet names such as “honey, baby, snookums, ect”

This word can be used up to the extreme of 2 people cohabitating for many years, having kids, mixing bank accounts; at this point it would be referred as a Not A Marriage.

Some BS that FB made up to let all your friends/everyone else know who you’re currently fucking.....Stealth motherfuckers(who think they’re sneaky as fuck),just put “in a relationship”,without really specifying who it is(that they’re fucking).....Really,it’s not an official relationship status.....Women like to put it on their relationship status(to keep all of the hard dicks away),and men like to put it(to let everyone know who they’re fucking,and that they’re fucking someone currently).....Doesn’t really matter(who it is),they’re fucking.....As long as they are.
“Is that who Barbara is currently fucking?”....”How can she be “in a relationship”,when her sorry ass is married?”....”.Why is she pretending to be available when she’s not?”.

It's okay that we had a fight in front of you, we're in a relationship.

It's fine that we called each other pet names and kissed in front of you, we're in a relationship.

It's okay that we had sex in the other room and you heard it, we're in a relationship.
