How long should one date before popping the question?

Other Factors A lot of people though believe that the ideal dating period, dating here defined as the period of going out before making a commitment towards marriage, should not be defined by any hard or fast rules. And it will depend on different things, like how much time you spend together, your past experiences, your age and your goals.
These are some of the answers you are likely to get if you decided to ask people the ideal length of the dating period.“The issue of the ideal dating period comes down to the two parties involved because, like in my case, after dating for a year and six months and a brief engagement period, we decided to get married though my parents had different ideas.They wanted me to first work and even get a Master’s degree.I’m not saying that it was wrong for them to have my best interests at heart but sometimes if the people involved don’t put their foot down they will never get married soon enough,” Uwase says.Uwase says the trends have changed from the traditional ways of dating and marriage.WHEN Yvette Kayitesi and Albert Nshizirungu decided to get married after dating for eight months, Kayitesi’s family and friends went up in arms.
