Read this question as- are you strong enough to leave?On one hand creating an ultimatum for your partner rarely motivates romance.You are not a used car salesman trying to get rid of shoddy goods.It might hurt to be alone, but it’s better for you in the long run than being in an unhappy marriage.Ted Huston, a leading researcher on transitions in relationships, marriage and parenthood, followed couples for 13 years starting in 1979.

Currently I co-run a longitudinal study of marriage and family development, started in 2008 and ongoing, and the answers couples gave me about their engagement ranged from several months to several years.Many couples are choosing to cohabit as an alternative to or dress rehearsal for marriage.Research is mixed as to whether couples who live together prior to marriage are as satisfied as those that waited until after marriage.You might even be filling your thoughts with anxiety and frustration about the future of your relationship.The issue of how long to wait for the ring might be a decision point for you.
