Before getting married, each and every person should have and has numerous relationships with other people. These relationships sometimes start during the end of primary school and they last all until people are engaged and then married. There is not any rule that says how many relationships a person should have before he, or she, gets married, but we would try to find the average number of relationships people get into before they get married.
The number of relationships a person establishes during his, or her, lifetime are very different from person to person and they depend on various factors. Despite how strange it sounds, the number of relationships you may have had depends on the family and upbringing you have, if you come from a very conservative and religious family, you may end up marrying the first person you dated.
Secondly, this number may also depend on the preferences of a man, or a woman, who simply wants to live his/her own life to the fullest before they tie the knot. Also, the main factor here may actually be the person you marry. What does this mean? Well, many people go into relationships to find the right person for themselves, and they keep searching until they find the right one. This may happen very quickly and soon, but sometimes this may take ages.
What is the average number?
If we are looking at the entire world and the statistics that exist there, and we need to say that those statistics are quite limited in terms of the number of people tested, areas where they could be performed and the limitations, i.e. they took in consideration only long-term relationships, we have come up with the number of average relationships before marriage to be somewhere between 3 and 5.
