A recent survey of 3000 engaged or married Brits has found that 1 in ten have set themselves a time limit on how far down the relationship they should get engaged. A massive 75% said they would end the relationship if that deadline went without a proposal. With only 38% of proposals getting the full bended knee treatment, 43% wish their proposal had been more romantic and they aren’t afraid to tell their partner so!
The poll also revealed that two years, three months and 20 days is the ideal length of an engagement before actually walking down the aisle. This means the average time from a couple’s eyes meeting to saying ‘I do’ is a total of five years, one month and 28 days.
The survey was conducted by The National Wedding Show which takes place this coming weekend at London Olympia and 14 – 16 March at Birmingham NEC.
