Six months is long enough. If you both know that you want marriage, you will know after about six months if you are not going to suit each other. There is no need to drag out the relationship for years and years, as nothing is really going to change. If he isn't ready to marry you now, he won't be six months from now or a year from now or ten years from now. Why waste your youth waiting for some guy to sh*t or get off the pot? I have known people who waited 17 years to get married, and they still have marriage issues.
I'm not saying you have to GET married after six months. Some people have longer engagements for a variety of reasons. But if after 6 months one half isn't ready to commit, then quit.
