No dating until after college
Many couples are choosing to cohabit as an alternative to or dress rehearsal for marriage.
Research is mixed as to whether couples who live together prior to marriage are as satisfied as those that waited until after marriage.
On average, the couples in my study decided to marry 2.8 years after they first showed romantic interest (many couples knew each other before they dated, but that isn’t counted).
This may reflect growing trends in the delay of marriage.
These couples usually made it to their seventh anniversary before divorcing sometime later.I get asked a lot of relationship-themed questions given where I work, and one of them is from women with boyfriends who want to know how long to wait for the ring.These aren’t women who have been dating for two months, but rather women who are in long-term relationships.Before bringing up the proposal conversation, ask yourself these four questions: Can you accept your relationship as it is, and remove/ give-up the expectation of marriage?Many women are interested in getting married simply because it’s validated by society, but that doesn’t mean you have to have a ring in order to be happy and have children.
