A lot longer than most people do. It's a proven fact that couples that get married at an older age to someone who they've been dating for a long time are the ones who are least likely to get a divorce. And don't start multiplying the moment you get married either. Things change when you're living with someone. Wait at least a few years. And I guess you're probably wanting me to give you an exact amount of time that you should date someone before getting married. It depends on a lot of things, but I'd say at *least*, 2-3 years. But if you aren't sure, then wait longer. If there is any chance that waiting longer is going to cause a problem in the relationship, then there is something wrong with the relationship, and this needs to be solved completely *before* you marry them. -DJ Craig

There were probably problems in her marriage long before you came along, but the point is, you didn't help matters and dating someone that is still married isn't right. I think you know that deep down. If you are still seeing this married woman then ask her. Marcy
