You have to spend a lot of time (at least three years) together before you can even hope to make the right decision about something so important. You have to see a guy in all possible situations, including times when he is very angry, and times when he is really, really bummed out.
You don't want to find out too late that he gets violent when he's angry, or that he's going to be a jealous control freak on you. These are things that he can hide for a certain period of time, but if you date long enough, he will eventually drop the facade and show you who he really is.
If you decide to marry, you should have an engagement period of at least one year. Some guys' behavior changes after they are really sure that they have a woman, and if that happens, you don't want to be married to him when it does.
