About This Quiz

Studies have found that the average length of a romantic relationship before engagement usually clocks in around 2 to 3 years. They've also found that couples who date for around 25 months prior to pursuing marriage plans end up the happiest in the midst of the marriage itself! Oh, and get this: Less than 6% of couples date for 8 years or more before agreeing to tie the knot. 

But of course, there's also the eternal-happy engagement, like Oprah Winfrey's to Stedman Graham, which rings up at over 25 years of engagement with no marriage plans at all. Whatever floats your boat, O!

Depending on your current romantic status or prospects, you may be feeling a bit anxious as to when the time for your own big day will come. Will you get caught up in a whirlwind Haley Baldwin/Justin Bieber-style mix, or will you find yourself hanging out at the table in the back with the other 6% of couples who rack up 8 years or more before deciding it's time?

You should enjoy every moment of your relationship, but we totally get it: It's hard not to get excited about the prospect of your big day! So what do you think? Have a nagging feeling your partner might pop the question soon? Just hoping for a sign that they will?

Don't trust the studies! Find out for yourself what your personality and your relationship says about your marriage prospects. Will you get married in the next year?!
