-Wendi L. Dumbroff, couples and sex therapist explains rules that can help determine whether or not a couple is ready for marriage –
Wendi L. Dumbroff, Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, LPC, was recently featured on WeddingWire where she discussed guidelines to follow before taking the marital plunge.
In the article, How Long Should You Date Before Getting Engaged?, Dumbroff stated, “The ‘honeymoon phase’ of a relationship is the stuff dreams are made of, but—and this is a big but—it doesn’t last longer than three to six months tops for most couples.”
Dumbroff further elaborated, “If you can look at this person with greater clarity—at their good and bad qualities, as well as everything in between—and still decide you love them and want to marry them, that’s much better than making such an important decision from the starry-eyed infatuation phase that characterizes those first months of new love.”
