Paige DeSorbo, the popular reality TV personality, recently opened up about her relationship with fellow reality star Craig Conover. In a candid interview, DeSorbo revealed that she was surprised by Conover’s proposal timeline.
DeSorbo and Conover first met on the reality TV show “Summer House” and began dating shortly after. The couple’s relationship was closely followed by fans, who were thrilled to see the two reality stars together. However, DeSorbo was shocked when Conover mentioned the possibility of marriage after just a few months of dating.
“I was taken aback when Craig brought up the topic of marriage,” DeSorbo said. “We had only been dating for a few months, and I wasn’t expecting to have that conversation so soon.”
DeSorbo went on to explain that while she was not opposed to the idea of getting married, she wanted to take things slow and get to know Conover better before taking such a big step.
“I think it’s important to take your time and really get to know someone before deciding to spend the rest of your life with them,” she said. “We’re still figuring things out, and I think it’s important to take things one step at a time.”
Despite her initial surprise, DeSorbo emphasized that she and Conover are still very much in love and are committed to making their relationship work.
“We have a lot of fun together and we really care about each other,” she said. “We’re both committed to making this work and we’re excited to see where this journey takes us.”
DeSorbo’s comments reflect a growing trend among young adults who are opting to wait longer before getting married. According to a recent study, the median age of first marriage in the United States has been steadily increasing over the past few decades, with many couples waiting until their late twenties or early thirties to tie the knot.
While the decision to wait may be a personal one, experts say that taking time to build a strong foundation for a relationship is key to long-term success.
“Marriage is a big commitment, and it’s important to make sure you’re ready for it,” said relationship expert Dr. John Gottman. “Taking the time to get to know your partner and build a strong foundation for your relationship can help ensure that you’re both on the same page and ready to take that next step.”
As DeSorbo and Conover continue to navigate their relationship, it remains to be seen whether they will ultimately decide to take the plunge and get married. However, DeSorbo’s comments suggest that the couple is in no rush to make any major decisions and is focused on building a strong and lasting relationship.
