Dear 100 Hour Board,

What is the average amount of time that BYU students actually know each other before they get married?

A: Dear Curious,

I always scoffed at them, before I became one: 7 months.

A: Dear Curiouser and Curiouser,

According to the brief survey I took (and including Beemer Boy's info above), the average is 11.375 months. The problem is that there were several reports of around 5 months as well as several reports of over 20 months. So almost a year is average, but it can vary quite a bit.
