Average dating length before marriage
Or maybe couples that have modest rings and receptions feel that their boundless love is a celebration enough.
Maybe this is all being thrown by some hidden Kardashian variable that none of us has uncovered yet.
The data scientist Randal Olson recently visualized some of the findings from a paper by Andrew Francis and Hugo Mialon, two researchers at Emory University who studied 3,000 married couples in the U. Their findings offer some take-aways for couples who want to minimize their chances of divorce: You should date for three years before popping the question. Similarly, a well-attended ceremony might be a proxy for a large family that pressures and/or supports the couple and helps them stay together.
A strong marriage, in other words, is an intentional one.
Nearly everyone said they got married to show they were committed to their partner, while very few cited social pressure, financial reasons, and convenience—which used to be reasons for getting hitched, unfortunately.
Married couples also think their choice was a good one—95 percent say they would recommend marriage to other people and 85 percent say it makes a relationship stronger.

You could just as easily have a strong, happy, and lasting marriage if you got hitched at 25 as you would if you got married at 35.
These findings come courtesy of uk, a wedding planning website in the U. For their survey, the website polled 4,000 recently married couples and asked, among other things, how long they had been in a relationship before they tied the knot. The average couple ends up spending 3.5 years living together before saying “I do” and of couples go this route (you know, just in case your parents give you sh*t about it): 89 percent live together in some form before they get married.
