Usually, how long do people date someone before getting married on average? My boyfriend is 25 I'm 18 if that makes a difference.

I'm ASTOUNDED at how fast people get married, I just don't understand the rush. Doesn't make anyone less likely to leave, it just makes it more of a pain in the ass. I read some smart thing once by a professional scientician, and they said that the human brain is more prone to essentially lustful infatuation the first year and a half or so, and after that, you evolve into either "settle down mode" or "sweet jeebus, I need to get the hell away from this clown mode." I don't understand how you could decide in such a short amount of time that you want to be with someone for supposedly the rest of your life. I think there's a social validation that comes with it that people are after. I mean, whatever, do what you feel is right, but if I'm playing the odds game, the longer you hold out, the better your chances. My parents date for 13 years before marrying, and they just celebrated their 37th anniversary a couple months back. There's gotta be something to that.0
