Ever judged a couple who decided to get married after just six months? According to a new study, there are no judgements necessary…

A new study polled married people and found that the average amount of time it took for them to decide their partner was the one was just 172 days. That’s about six months, which is less time than most people estimate they’ll need to make this big decision.

Singles who were surveyed, however, estimated they would need about 210 days to make up their minds.

“Romantic partners might incorrectly assume that deciding to tie the knot is a lengthy and deliberative decision,” Nadav Klein, a PhD student at the University of Chicago and co-author of the study told NY Post. “Our findings suggest that people misunderstand how quickly they make judgments.”

You know that old saying, “When you know, you know.” Well, looks like it might be accurate…

The study was conducted on 2,000 people, married and single. Researchers in the study found that on average it took participants five bad interactions with someone to decide they didn’t like them. Relatable, anyone?

Psychologist and therapist Joe Taravella told NY Post that his experiences are aligned with the results of the study.

“After the three-month honeymoon period, people tend to let down their guards and you begin to get a true glimpse of the real person and how they deal with the good and bad and everything in between,” Taravella explained.

Follow your intuition, people!

We should all live by Taravella’s words of wisdom: “If you see things in your partner that is not aligned or meeting your needs, it’s best to just move on in your search for true happiness.”
