Average length of time dating before moving in together
You may have heard this discussed on the radio or on television: some people get married rather quickly after they begin dating.
Some couples have shared that, after a mere two dates, they got married.
They want to have enough time to know each others' quirks and habits and any potential annoyances that they might not like to deal with in marriage.
During this dating process, couples might decide to move in together before they are sure that they want to get married.
A little dishearteningly, 97 percent of that 23 percent are female; whether it has anything to do with the gender wage gap, I can’t say, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did.
Meanwhile, 16 percent of renters split their bills based on their individual incomes.
And of course, as Your Tango points out, there are plenty of questions to ask yourself about whether it’s really the right move for you, too. For many other couples, it can take between one and three years of dating before they are sure that they want to get married.They might weigh things out over the months and years and get to know each other on as many levels of intimacy as they can.27 percent of those surveyed said that they moved in together after dating for less than six months, while 18 percent said they didn’t think people should move in together until after they’ve tied the knot.It’s probably worth noting, though, that of the ones who moved in together after dating for six months or less, a paltry seven percent recommend that others follow their path — so, y’know, a word of caution: The honeymoon stage may be enough to sustain you in the early days of cohabiting, but it might fall apart a little later on.
