Dating? How Long is Too Long to Wait for A Commitment, By Ilissa Banhazl MFT, Glendora

Tips for a Happy Marriage!

How long is too long to wait for a commitment?

So you’ve given him/her a year, two years, three years or more and he/she is still not ready to make a commitment to you and the relationship. When is it time to move on? Depending on your circumstances that may be your cue that perhaps your partner does not have your belief system about marriage or maybe your just not the one.

It’s hard to leave a relationship that has many good things. If you wait a long time for your partner to commit you may be wasting years hoping. If you break free you can make room for someone new to enter your life. Perhaps someone who is ready to commit to the person they fall in love with.

Starting over can be scary. Ending the relationship can be difficult and confusing. But if you have been with someone over 2 years, your older than 27 and you want to be married, it may be time to move on. Start by taking a good look at your life and decide which changes would bring you happiness. Be brave!

If you would like to figure this out with the help of a therapist in Glendora, please call Ilissa Banhazl, MFT at (626) 335-0903,
