Marriage after 6 months of dating
Betchen, DSW, author of , agrees that dating one to two years is safest.“There are no hard and fast rules," Amodeo acknowledges."But I must admit that I feel nervous when I hear about people getting married within a year (or even two) of meeting.I did some digging and reached out to relationship therapists and psychologists to get their thoughts.

These couples dated an average of eighteen months and were engaged for half that time.
