Average length of dating before second marriage
Read this question as- are you strong enough to leave?On one hand creating an ultimatum for your partner rarely motivates romance.
But a 30-something guy in a multi-year relationship with a steady job doesn’t have that same excuse. Maybe he really is just saving up his pennies and has a plan in place.
You are not a used car salesman trying to get rid of shoddy goods.

Most say living together prior to getting engaged has less promising outcomes, but this might not reflect changing cultural acceptance.
