Relationship Enters 'Watch Every Episode of Doctor Who' Stage.

There are six stages of intimacy in every relationship: Infatuation, Landing, Burying, Resurfacing, Love, and Watching All of Doctor Who.

Congrats to the happy couple!  After dating for almost three years, Greg Harrison and Jean Lee took a giant step forward in their relationship this week, announcing to family and friends their plan to watch all of Doctor Who together.  In a Facebook post early Friday morning Jean Lee shared a photo of the Doctor Who Complete Box Set in her hands with the caption, "He asked.  I said YES!!!"  

The news was met with great excitement from everyone who has known the couple over the years with excited friends immediately liking the post and wishing them the best. "Oh my god," exclaimed Jean's best friend Janelle Baker in response to the news. "You two are so wonderful together!!! So So So excited for you both!!!" 

According to most relationship experts, there are six stages of emotional intimacy that must be reached before a couple can truly say their relationship is complete.

These stages include: Infatuation (meeting the love of your life) - Landing (Learning the faults of your love) - Burying (Balancing the difficulties of real life with your relationship) - Resurfacing (Rekindling a more mature love with your partner) - Mature Love (True love) - and finally Watching All Episodes of Doctor Who Together (At least the most recent nine seasons).  For a couple to truly last for decades, these six stages must be reached although there is no specific timeline for when it will occur.  

Greg and Jean's announcement is also a great relief to Jean Lee's mother, Mrs. Lee, who had worried that the couple was putting off this important stage in their relationship to focus on careers.  "Greg is a wonderful man, but he works so late in the city sometimes that I worried he and Jean would never get around to this.  You can't wait too long in life to watch Doctor Who together or it just becomes more difficult," she confided to The Outhousers.  

"My friend Charlotte's daughter is almost 37 now and still hasn't watched Doctor Who with her husband.  What if they can't stay awake for all nine seasons since 2005?"  

While no official date has been set, the couple has said informally that they expect to start watching the series this December with hopes of completing the show by March 2016.  Making a firm commitment to watch at least 1-2 episodes a night, the couple hopes to balance work, family, and making time to watch the British sci-fi series focusing on the universe-traveling adventures of the last Time Lord.  

When asked 'why now' Greg Harrison admitted that things just 'felt right' and there was no more reason to wait.  "Jean and I have been through a lot of good times, bad times, and marathon weekends of TV series binging together," smiled Greg while looking at his lady love.  "She's been there with me through all seasons of Breaking Bad, Mad Men, heck even Buffy the Vampire Slayer."  

"There's no one else I can see myself watching Doctor Who with but her."
