For me personally, DH was never my partner. He was my boyfriend, then my fiance, and then my husband. I hate the term partner.
But, I would consider that if a couple have moved in together, and aren't engaged, then they are partners. I have friends who are in this position, and they call themselves partners, so I do as well.

When you've been together so long that boyfriend sounds tacky or you've got a house or children together, IMO.

Haven't read all of the replies, but my criteria for partner is:
-Must be making plans together for the future
-Have passed the honeymoon phase / faced a reasonable hurdle in the relationship
-Seen each other at your worst (ugly cry, really angry. jealous, vomitting)
-Support the other through something difficult
