Dating is a stage of romantic or sexual relationships in humans whereby two or more people meet socially, possibly as friends or with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a prospective partner in a more committed intimate relationship or marriage.
The study discovered that high wedding attendance and a honeymoon (regardless of cost) "are positively associated with marriage duration."
