If your man is holding off on marriage it may not be because he doesn’t want to marry you. It may be because he wants your marriage to last. Researchers at Emory University Surveyed over 3000 Currently or previously married people. They found that dating one or two years significantly dropped the likelihood of divorce by about 20%. Dating three or more years decreased it by about 50%. Does this mean that dating for ten years decreases the likelihood of divorce even more…probably not.
