The Average Couples Wait HOW Long Before Getting Married!?
With so many quick engagements on our Twitter and Instagram feeds, it’s only natural that we would assume that the average couple gets hitched quick once their forever relationship begins. That may have been true for our parents and grandparents, but believe it or not, the quick engagements are in the minority these days. People are waiting much longer to tie the knot.
How long is “long?” According to a study by Bridebook, couples date for an average of 1.4-years before deciding to move in together. After just under two years of living together, they’ll probably decide to get engaged. But the actual wedding? That doesn’t even come until another 1.6-years after that. So do the math…that’s five whole years.
Of course, there is a plus side to waiting for your wedding day. Divorce rates are at their lowest since 1971, so we’re probably doing better with the whole “finding our soulmate” thing.

Giant Gingerbread Man Peeps Are Here For The Holidays
Now that Halloween is finally over, we can start talking about all the gingerbread, peppermint, and Christmas cookie-flavored goodies that will be taking over soon. Peeps is already bringing the holiday cheer with their new GIANT gingerbread man marshmallow treats, which are basically the size of a whole sleeve of Peeps in one.
These sugary guys are four-inches tall, dusted in brown sugar, and come decorated with hands, mouth, buttons, and pants and shirt lines, plus, they’re gluten-free. But if the enormous gingerbread man is too much, they come in a smaller size as well, along with other festive shapes including Christmas trees and snowmen.
