The average duration of courtship varies considerably throughout the world. Furthermore, there is vast individual variation between couples. Courtship may be completely omitted, as in cases of some arranged marriages where the couple do not meet before the wedding.

In the United Kingdom , a poll of 3,000 [1] engaged or married couples resulted in an average duration between first meeting and accepted proposal of marriage of 2 years and 11 months, [1] [2] with the women feeling ready to accept at an average of 2 years and 7 months. [1] Regarding duration between proposal and wedding, the UK poll above gave an average of 2 years and 3 months. [2]

The date is fairly casual in most European-influenced cultures, but in some traditional societies, courtship is a highly structured activity, with very specific formal rules.

One member of the Duggar family is speculated to be in a courtship. While Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have not announced that their daughter Jinger Duggar in dating, fans of the family’s canceled reality series, “19 Kids and Counting,” are speculating she may no longer be single.

As first reported by the Inquisitr , “19 Kids and Counting” viewers seem to believe that Jinger Duggar, 21, brought along a member of the equally famous Bates family as her date to a recent outing. According to the site, “Bringing Up Bates” star Lawson Bates' appearance at Amy Duggar’s wedding to Dillon King in Arkansas on Sept. 6 is a clue of a potential new courtship in the works.

In a photo posted to the Duggar family’s Facebook page, Jinger Duggar can be seen posing at her cousin Amy Duggar’s wedding alongside several family members. However, Lawson Bates is also in the shot and standing right next to the fourth eldest Duggar daughter. It is also worth noting that Lawson’s brother, Trace Bates, can be seen in the group photo.

I think courtship is very important. As a woman who is trying to serve God to the best of my ability, hooking up is not an option for me. I am not dating for a good time, I am dating to find a compatible spouse so yes, I do miss courtship.

During the next couple of years outwardly it seemed as though there was not much happening in regard to this area. In fact, when I looked around, the possibilities for a husband seemed to be very few and there were many times that I was tempted to distrust and despair. Yet, I knew that this was the right path and I could trust in my Heavenly Father. Indeed, unknown to us, God was at work in a mighty way. For God was in a marvelous way bringing His perfect will to pass.
