Aerage dating time before marriage
Do you expect that things will be different in marriage?
Before you get married, consider how your relationship typically operates.
Further, some couples meet as strangers, while others have been friends for a long time prior to introducing any romantic element.
Then lived together for 1.83 years (22 months) before getting engaged.
But these suggested time frames can't possibly apply to everyone.
If a couple meets at age 21, that's different from meeting at 31, which itself provides a different context from meeting at 41.
We’re also much less likely to get married than previous generations (a shame for party lovers, less of a shame for your bank balance) with 83% of us saying we don’t really feel compelled to get married.
The good news is that getting engaged no-longer seems to be a choice made by the groom alone.
