Example sentence:

And so, when Katsumi and Kiyoshi reached their second year of relationship, they moved in to a one-bedroom apartment.

Is this kind of expression common? If not, what's a more typical alternative?

    Alternatively, you could say "reached their second year together". – webbm Oct 10 '17 at 12:35

    Sound very formal; "...had been seeing each other for a year, ..." perhaps? – Dan Oct 10 '17 at 13:46
