Marriage statistics by length of dating
On the other end of this spectrum, only 6% of couples date for 8 years or more before getting engaged.
Though by a relatively small margin, couples in the South spend the least time dating prior to engagement.
The couples who were studied were divided into three groups: those who courted for less than one year before marriage, one to three years before marriage, and three or more years before marriage.
So, we surveyed 1,000 recently-engaged Weddington Way customers (all women), posing questions like: How old were you when you got engaged? And, how long were you dating prior to your engagement?
After compiling these responses, we sorted them by geographic region (West, Midwest, South, and Northeast).
