Thanks for your feedback. I've learned a lot!

The reason for my original question was that a friend-of-a-friend was claiming a World War II origin for "live-in lover" -- and I didn't think it possible that, in the '40s, such relationships could, or would, have been so brazenly tagged.

What is your view?
