What is the best time span before someone get married?

I am confuse if there is a required length of time in order for a person to decide when he or she will get married. Some just get married soon even they just spend few months being in a relationship while others took years before they decide to get married. Is there a best time span for a couple to finally decide to get married? If yes, can you tell me how long is it? Happy mylotting to everyone and have a nice stay.

For me the length of time being together does not matter as long as they truly love each other and they are both ready to tie the knot. It will really depend on the couple, how much they have known each other and how much they loved each other, and how much they are willing to give and to risk. We all know that not all marriages that work are the couples who got married after a long period of time they are together. I have a friend who's in a relationship with this guy for almost 6 years, they actually lived together for almost for years when the guy proposed to her. After a month of being engaged they broke up. Now the guy already has a new love and wants to marry the new girl he just met while my friend is still holding on, waiting for the guy to come back to her.

I think it depends on how much the couple see one another. If they meet every two weeks then that isn't the same as three evenings a week and every Saturday. I think that if dating frequently two years might be the best time span. Then the couple should know each other well enough and feel sure that they will be compatible in their marriage.

My opinion is however long it takes as long as it is more than 2 years. If you do it under 2 years you won't know everything about the person you are marrying and it is a known scientific fact that people who get married early tend to get divorced more often and have fights more often then poeple who wait.
