to be in a serious relationship and not be married?
I am just really curious what others think on this subject.
different for everyone - they say 5 yrs. but my dad and step mom never planned on marrying because both their families were grown and didnt want to mix their monies. but then my dad crashed on his bike. they had to lie to get her into the ER. which motivated them to marry - its the same as before they were married. they were together 10 years before that happened.
Depends on your age, whether or not you are both out your own , If you are in college ? lots of factors come into play.
I agree with you on the last sentence.
Quoting scperdomo:For me personally, 3 years. DH and I were together just over 2 years before we got married. If there weren't at least talking of getting married by year 2, I would have started reevaluating things.
I lived with my husband for 7 years before feeling comfortable enough to commit to marriage. I had been thru a bad one and didn't want to make the same mistake. Thank God he didn't put a time limit on it.
i like my last name and im not the marrying kind.
you cant put a time limit, unless you want something different than the person you are involved with
If one person doesnt want marriage and they are clear, time to move on. No need to push that person into a relationship they dont want. Sometimes they dont know what they want, sometimes they dont know how to say Bye. So why waste your time on someone who cant commit
