Time of dating before marriage

When I give talks on how to make wise decisions about love relationships, the burning question that someone almost always asks is, “How long do I have to wait?

If you are looking for a general rule of thumb, then two years is probably a good length of time for most people, but I don’t personally favor any hard-and-fast rule about how long a courtship should be.

I think it depends completely on the character of the people involved, how often they see each other, in what situation(s) they spend their time dating, and how intentional they are about discovering their degree of fit.

In some cases, it may be wise to wait three or more years before making a decision, and in other cases, a couple may be able to make a wise decision in less than two years. ” If you are thinking along these lines, the question to ask is, “When might it be wise to wait three years or longer?

As I write this, I’m imagining that some readers may be thinking, “Three years? ” To this, I would say, a lengthy courtship would be wise any time three years (or more) have passed but you still know relatively little about each other.

For example, consider the case of a courtship that has played out during multiple successive military deployments.
