The rush of infatuation leads people to take the next steps in their relationship without looking objectively at the odds of the relationship succeeding.

Relationships that form under these circumstances, should they lead to marriage, are more likely to suffer in terms of quality. Close relationship researchers have known for years that couples who cohabitate before marriage and are not engaged are more likely to divorce or, if they remain together, experience poor marital quality. Rather than going through the process of critically evaluating whether the relationship is right for them, they make the decision to marry out of factors such as convenience, economics, or—the sex.
In an online study of nearly married and cohabitating couples in which the female partner was less than 45 years old, Sassler and colleagues examined measures of relationship quality, sexual satisfaction, communication, and conflict. Respondents indicated relationship tempo by saying how long the couple waited, after they started dating, to have sex. Controlling for a number of important other variables age, number of prior marriages, children, education, income, and financial strain , the researchers then compared the relationship quality of couples who waited less than a month, months, and 6 months or more.
Because the study was a cross-sectional one, meaning that people were not followed over time, this meant that it was impossible to determine whether people destined to have worse relationships jumped into sex sooner than those who would go on to be satisfied with their partners. In general, the findings supported the hypothesis that having sex early defined here as within a month of dating was related to poorer relationship outcomes for men and women.
