Dating for years before marriage
If you are focused on the subject, are you missing issues sitting just on the periphery? On one hand, if either of you are still in college or graduate school and not financially stable it might not be a good idea.

Research is mixed as to whether couples who live together prior to marriage are as satisfied as those that waited until after marriage.Most say living together prior to getting engaged has less promising outcomes, but this might not reflect changing cultural acceptance.If not, are you ready or willing to take a stand for what you want?Are these guys patient or just stringing them along? As it turns out, there isn’t a lot of recent research on the courtship length prior to marriage.Decades ago the statistics ranged from six to fourteen months.
