Relationships Talk to Steph

Talk To Steph: How long should you date before getting married?

Adaora, 27, has been in a relationship with Kingsley, 32, for two years. She works at an accounting firm, and he runs a furniture business.

Adaora says Kingsley is “kind, fun, romantic, and supportive”. He is the man she wishes to spend the rest of her life with and vice versa. She wonders when is the best time to talk about marriage as he is yet to bring up the subject.

She is not sure what to do. Two years is long enough to decide where this journey is leading to. When she brings the subject up, he tells her to “relax, fate will work it out”.

Fate? Hmm! She believes fate is important, but the wishes and decision of two willing partners is all the fate you really need. 

Ada wants to know: How long should she wait for the marriage proposal to come after two years of dating?

What are your thoughts?

    Is about time you make your decision. Because two year is sufficient for dating.

    It depends on how long you are willing to wait! That’s the truth. To you it may be three years and to others 10 years!
    To me, Two years is enough for anyone to make a decision about getting married to someone.
    If that’s not happening, be direct and ask questions o and if the answer isn’t direct and plain enough, just know they are not sure and they haven’t decided, they are not ready, marriage is far from their minds and they may just be time wasters! Simply move on!
    But if you can wait even if it takes forever before he proposes, no problem. Yes two years is enough for a guy to propose but there isn’t really a time frame within which a guy can propose. It varies individually
