Dating time before engagement
Yes, well Bob has been dating for about 8 months and it was recently suggested to him that after 8 months, it was time to get serious or time to look for his spare key in the mail. This came as a surprise to Bob, who thought things were going smoothly and was thinking that if things kept on like this to the anniversary of the first date, it might be time to think about engagement rings.
It's no secret that marriage traditions are changing.
(We're guessing financial reasons are behind the decision for many couples.)We're also getting married far later in life now than the previous generation, with the average first-time bride now 30.8 and groom 32.7 years old, compared with 22.6 and 24.6 years old in 1971, respectively.
These days, the average bride and groom will also have had two serious relationships before settling down.
Modern couples are rewriting the rulebook when it comes to weddings and marriage.
We're spending less on more unique and interesting engagement rings and waiting until later in our lives than previous generations to tie the knot.
In fact, the average bride and groom in the UK date for 4.9 years before getting married.
For the modern couple, here's the breakdown of that half-decade: 17 months of dating before moving in together, 22 months of living together before getting engaged, and 20 months of engagement before getting married.
Not only that, but we're also spending longer in our relationships before getting married.
According to a survey of 4,000 recently married couples by uk, the average couple spends 4.9 years in a relationship before getting married, meaning we know our partners better than ever before walking down the aisle.
The newlyweds surveyed overwhelmingly said they would recommend getting married, and that marriage has made their relationship stronger.
More than 90 percent of participants said they felt less pressure to get married than their parents' generation.
