What is the average dating time before marriage?

Answer

According to a study published by "Psychology Today," women date for an average of 3.6 years before marrying their husbands. The average amount of time spent dating before marriage varies among couples.

The time frame is often influenced by factors such as the age of the couple, if they knew each other prior to dating and even the culture that they come from. Some couples begin dating in college but decide to wait until after graduation to get married. This can add up to a period of several years before they are wed.

Some of the factors that affect the length of time that a couple dates before marriage include finances, education and family responsibilities.
