For many, changing their Facebook relationship status and linking profiles with a partner is a major decision that could be a precursor to moving in together or even an engagement. As Yahoo put it, "For the Facebook generation, love now comes with a drop-down menu."
The social networking site asks users to select their relationship status (Single, In a Relationship, Engaged, Married, It's Complicated, It's an Open Relationship) from a menu. They can also leave it blank, although most are comfortable listing their status.
