Dating with no intention to marry
For example, when a man goes to law school, which takes three additional years, he usually starts considering marriage around age 27 or 28.
That’s also the age when most doctors, who spend four years in medical school and at least one year as an intern, start seriously thinking about marriage.
In fact, we threw out the entire study and started again.
The second time we tried teams composed of men and women, but that produced mainly politically correct answers, which we also questioned.
Even among men who are positively inclined toward marriage and are from identical educational and socioeconomic backgrounds, 20 percent will reach the age of commitment a year or more before our estimates, while another 20 percent will only consider marriage as a real option two to four years later.
So if you’re dating a man much younger than the commitment age, the chance he’ll commit is relatively small.
The single men apparently did not feel an obligation to give these interviewers macho or politically correct answers. The first was that there is an age when a man is ready to marry-the Age of Commitment.
The age varies from man to man, but there are patterns that are easily identified: Still, there is no one-to-one correlation.
This is usually an arrangement agreed to by the man but devised by the woman.If a woman is seriously trying to find a husband, she should date men who have reached the age of commitment.
