3. You don’t get grossed out by each other’s bodily functions.

7. A lot of your communication is non-verbal.
You’ve gotten your communication game down pat. You are both so solid with how you communicate with one another that you don’t even have to use words so much anymore. You can essentially communicate with your eyes and facial expressions. That would be enough for both of you to be on the same page.
8. You don’t feel insecure about the future of your relationship anymore.
You know that the future of your relationship is always going to be safe and sound.

9. You tell stories and anecdotes together as if you’ve rehearsed it.
You’ve gotten so used to telling the same stories about your relationship over and over again to your friends and family that it all seems rehearsed. It’s as if you’re both reciting lines from a play when you talk to your friends about the adventures that the two of you have been on.
10. People who just meet you generally assume that you’re already married.
You just already have that kind of vibe about you as a couple. You already give off that married kind of energy. It’s evident in your mannerisms and the way that you act around one another. And so whenever you’re both meeting people for the first time, they just assume that you’re already married.
