We have a winner (just_jo)! The average marriage lasts 9.4 years! I know many who are going on 30 years, so that must mean there are many that last for much less! A sad statistic for sure!

Two years ago, a friend who had lived with her boyfriend for over 5 years got married. Within months, she decided on divorce, because she realized there were things about him she couldn't deal with. Stuff she already knew, but wouldn't admit it. She wanted her big wedding. And it was a very nice one, too ;)

I think marriages like that really help skew the average.

Re:
I don't think living with a person while not married is really a good way to get to know someone. When there's a real committment, it changes many things. I think you're probably right though and she knew it already. I think we sometimes think that a person will change, or that "we" can change a person!
