Personally, I think it should be based totally on what you think is long enough or too long, or whatever. If you really love someone it doesn't really make a difference. However, if you are with someone and you think that they should have proposed to you by now then you should talk to them about it. Marriage shouldn't be something that you are afraid of talking about with the person you love, and if they are scared or uneasy, don't be mad, that is a normal reaction for some people to feel. My husband proposed to me after 3 months of dating, and I was terrified. I said yes, then no, then I don't know, then yes again. I had been married before, and I didn't want to rush into anything. I am happy that I did though. We get along great, and I can talk to him about anything. We don't have any secrets between us, and we don't hide anything that we are thinking or feeling from each other. We both understand that it is easier to just say what you feel even if it hurts the other person for a second, instead of holding it in and causing issues later. The amount of time that you should wait is the amount of time that is comfortable for you.
