What to expect after dating for two years
This power struggle must take place and leads to the question: Can I be me and still be in this relationship? Recommitment to marriage or permanence and to your partner as the chosen one.
These aren’t women who have been dating for two months, but rather women who are in long-term relationships.Is there a difference between couples that met recently and those in Huston’s study?Ted Huston, a leading researcher on transitions in relationships, marriage and parenthood, followed couples for 13 years starting in 1979.He states in his study that happily married couples dated for approximately 25 months before getting married. Couples who were unhappily married soon after they said “I do” and quickly divorced more often married at or after three years.
Couples who fell fast in love were engaged after nine months, and married after 18 months.
These couples usually made it to their seventh anniversary before divorcing sometime later.
