Dating advice for women who want to get married


But this is taking a gamble that the man is typical, because the figures I’ve just given are educated estimates.Not all men mature at the same rate, and other factors can and do affect a man’s readiness to marry.Our original intent was to determine how men at different ages reacted to single women they met at social gatherings.We started by asking the men about their lives before they met their future wives.First, Beth reviewed the literature and research we had on file.With this in mind, I reviewed our interviews with men and women who were planning to marry and videos of two focus groups we had run with single men.

So if you’re dating a man much younger than the commitment age, the chance he’ll commit is relatively small.Finally, we had men in their sixties ask the questions, and that solved the problem.The responses they elicited were generally straightforward.There’s one exception to this rule: Men and women who are seriously committed couples while still in school often get married shortly after they finish their formal education.This is usually an arrangement agreed to by the man but devised by the woman.When Beth, one of my better researchers, said that men who were averse to commitment were drawn to her like bees to honey, I gave her a copy of the summary report of my research on “why men marry.” The report showed that the primary reason a man asks one woman to marry and not another is that each woman treats him differently.
