What is a good timeline for a relationship?
Some people get engaged within months, while others wait years, decades, or they never do. Any of this is okay. Its even okay to never get married if you dont want to. But the average timeline for getting engaged is somewhere around the 1 ½ to 2-year mark.
How long is a good time to date?
Give Yourself Time to Know Your Partner Through the Good Times and the Bad. As a baseline, Ian Kerner, PhD, LMFT, licensed psychotherapist, couples therapist and author of She Comes First, suggests that one to two years is often a good amount of time to date before getting engaged.
