If a man is smart, and wants to reduce the chances of divorce or a soul-destroying miserable marriage, he'll wait at least 4 years.
Only about 20% of women are capable of loving the same man forever (like 20+ years), even if he's a better man than ever.
50% of women will begin to resent and despise their partner at about the 4 year mark, and it doesn't matter how much she loved him in the beginning. It's purely a reaction to body chemicals, and neither she, nor he, will be able to change that. That's why 44% of marriages end in divorce, and the wife often can't find any logical reason but "I just fell out of love, and I don't know why".
After 4 years, a man can eliminate the worst 50% of women if there is any sign of problems (like physical affection and sex have reduced to almost zero, and will never get better).
He then has a 40% chance of staying happily married to a woman who will love him almost as much as he loves her.0
