先结婚后恋爱

Love can be cultivated after marriage.

Whether there exists such an expression in English language I do not know. I wonder whether it can be expressed this way?

先结婚后恋爱

Not a translation.

But isn't 先结婚后恋爱 amounting to putting the cart before the horse?

Thank you very very much

Acutally, I want to use the sentence to express the transition of my attitude towards my major in college. At first, I , as a freshman, did not know its professional background and the application. However, with the past three years' learning, I have established a comprehensive understanding of my major.

I think "先结婚后恋爱" is a proper expression in Chinese that represents the transition. Maybe we should not translate it word by word into English and there is an authentic English expression to expound what I want to say.
