The longest relationship that I know of is zerka or Josh from the sidemen. He’s been in a committed relationship for over 10 years

I was married a bit under the 4 year mark, seriousness isn't solely on time.

So do you think a shorter relationship (1 year) could be more serious than longer (3+ years)

Debatable really, some people see living together as what makes it serious but some people can see otherwise.

What about spending a lot of time together at uni and in halls etc? Would that be considered serious?

I would say it’s subjective - I’ve been with my current boyfriend for 10 months, lived with him for almost 4 months and can see myself marrying him and building a future. My ex I was with for 3 and a half years and the whole time we were together I never pictured us married or with kids or anything. Why does it matter what other people say?

the question wasn’t is 5 years serious, the question was is 5 years long term. in that case, the answer is yes, i consider anything over 5 years a long term relationship. but on terms of seriousness, that’s subjective and completely depends on the relationship.

Sorry if this is intrusive, but why did you stay with him if you knew you weren't gonna marry him?

It's okay, I don't mind sharing!

We got together when I was quite young so I'd never really thought about marriage, and in the end I broke up with him because I couldn't see a future for us! I don't think marriage is essential in a relationship, but it was interesting to me how I'd never envisioned myself getting married prior to the relationship I'm in now lol.
