  • It depends on age and the couple in mind but for me personally I expect to have moved in and decided to marry or not. At 6 to 9 months you move in and if one person doesn't move out after 9 months you have a keeper. You'll probably figure out whether you can live together permanently and if s/he is the one pretty fast. I'd expect to be absolutely convinced she's the one by 1.5 years. If she isn't I would not wait 1.5 years to exit. I'm 43 and don't have the luxury of time.

  • You lost me after "expect"... the key to a relationship is not to expect shit. the moment you do... to kick off a tiny dust storm that eventually turns into a tornado.
    When guys ask a girl out... they dont EXPECT... they just have an interest and want to explore it... and depending on how far it gets, they can leave, propose, marry... depends.
    The difference between guys and girls is that one EXPECTS things to go a certain way (take a wild guess what gender that is), the other one is just happy to be in a relationship, and wants to see where it goes.

  • This is a bias question really, as there isn't really a build up quota in relationships. Everyone has their own speeds of comfortsbility that they have or desire in a relationship, and they shouldn't feel pressured to be a certain way with their partner because they feel obligated too. Any solid relationship takes time to adjust and make into the match one wants in a match. So it's best to talk things over with your significant other if things aren't going as transitionally smooth as you have hoped it would. Just be open and considerate when receiving the answer, as some people may feel shy about certain things.

  • Depends on the age, if I started dating now then at the end of that 1.5 years, I'd be expecting something like a talk about the future (not marriage yet lol) as to whether or not we are going to the same university and if we do then are we going to move in together?(though moving in is not likely because of Hmong customs, it'd be awkward if I moved in with a guy I'm not married to, just the rumors that might spread about me to family)
    Though if I was like 22 and it's been 1.5 years then it's where I'm expecting a marriage proposal (this is just what I think right now though I might push this age back later on). Cause I only expect to date 2-3 years before marrying the person.

  • I think I got your question...
    3 dates rule was never for me.
    3 dates would be enough to know if we can be together.
    1.5 years is more than enough for a marriage proposal. So if you don't get one or get stupid excuses = he's not planning to marry you.

    • Lol fuck marriage any man that gets married now with all the courts against us is stupid

    • Show All
    • In some cases the “honeymoon” phase of a relationship can last 18 months. So, I’d say by 1.5 years you are beginning to know the other person for certain. I have wanted to get married at this stage, though my experience suggests it’s too early.

  • Currently only seventeen but girlfriend of basically 2 years we're still just having fun at this point in our lives. The future is uncertain, but after 1.5 years, it'd be different for different age groups I'd say.

  • They say after two years, people draw their conclusions and decide how they want to continue.
    It's probably settling down to a regular beat at this point, and hopefully you are happy and comfortable.
    You are still learning lots about them and you are starting to realistically consider what next for the relationship.
    You learn a lot more living together than just dating.

  • I don't even consider marriage at this part of my life until I've been with someone for at least 3 years... so my answer would be: The same as when we first met, but hopefully more comfortable with each other.

  • No template for this. Every relationship is different.
    I'd want to at least know where they wanted it to go. If they saw it as serious or not.

  • Depends on the age of the couple 😂 if it's a teenage couple then I'll probably expect the relationship status to be "single again" 😆

  • I would say it depends on the foundations of the relationships themselves. Some are not intended to go long term some are intend for marriage. It depends on the people.

  • The cracks will be starting to appear for an average relationship these days. The average length of a marriage is only 8 years now.

  • I wouldn't expect, I would just go with the flow with what's happening - depending in my age of course. Back when I was with my boyfriend from 17-19 years old, we just had fun and what not, but now being 21 I'd probably prefer to be married by 25. But it doesn't always turn out the way you want it too

  • Thinking about whether you actually want to marry the person... or get engaged for that matter. You should be out of honeymoon stage and ready for real love. Know if they're still the one.

    • What about if you wanted to spend your life together but not get married

    • @BobDaRuraBDR That’s why I said “if it is that you want to get married at all”
