Average lenght of dating before marriage
You are not a used car salesman trying to get rid of shoddy goods.
It might hurt to be alone, but it’s better for you in the long run than being in an unhappy marriage.
There is actually a lower divorce rate now than in the 80s, and what marriage means on a societal level is also changing.
What are the issues that might be holding him back?
Are these worth addressing, accepting, or rejecting?
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.
