Average time dating before marriage proposal define online predating
Will be celebrating 40 years of marriage this summer. My minimum is two years, though I don't have a maximum.
I think you should always try living together first though. This is the reason I don't put a time limit on these things.
Others take things slower and it could be years before they take that next step.
I'm one of those people that generally err on the side of "If we're meant to be together forever, it doesn't matter when we get married." Some people may feel differently and that's cool. When I was under 25, I might have been engaged within a year or two, but would have had a long engagement.When you’re young, you feel like time is limitless and you can squander it all you want. Set a limit on how long you’re willing to patiently wait? Maybe you want to be young, hip parents, so marriage and children are on the brain sooner.Then suddenly, college and your 20s are gone, life gives you a reality check, and you may find yourself in a position where time is not on your side. You don’t want to rush, but you think you’ve found “The One” and time keeps ticking by. Or, maybe you don’t know how you feel about marriage or if you even want it. If you were dating someone and they seemed like "the one" how long would you wait before popping the question, or if you would prefer to be asked, how long would you want them to wait? There are ridiculous minimums, like you've been on one date and you want to marry the guy (run), but I don't see why you have to wait 2 years. They met and married within a week, and over 20 years later they are still very much in love. My own parents were together, on and off, for around 6 years before tying the knot and their marriage was nowhere near harmonious. Not that I'm married or engaged, but I wouldn't mind being either. You both know the other is "it" for you, and marriage is something you want, get married. I can actually think of one exception right now, and that would be my boyfriend's parents.
