That is why the average dating length before marriage must be well considered.
However, the average dating length within courtship is not the only factor that must be taken into account.
But it also emerged that almost six in ten Brits reached a point where they felt they were never going to find 'The One'.
And another 59 per cent said they think their path to their 'Happy Ever After' was a difficult one.
The other factors are: How much trust there exist in the relationship The health of the relationship itself The maturity of both partners Economic possibilities The approval of family members So as you can see, it is not only about the average dating time to wait before proposal.
