Don't want to make USA-Canadia boarder patrol Suspicious

Help! My Canadian bF would like to visit me for a while, without using any visas, to make a decision about marriage. How long would you suggest he stay in America and then in Canada? We were told that it would arouse suspicion if he visited for the allowed 180 days and then tried to return for another 60 days. We are back to the drawing board. If he just came for 10 weeks and returned to Canada for a few months would they be likely to let him come back to stay for 12 weeks? Thank you for any insights or suggestions!

There is a max amount of time allowed per year, longer than that and you risk accumulating overstay.

I visited my fiance in the states for 16 weeks and then came back for about 3 months and visited him again for 2 weeks with no issues whatsoever. Just don't mention marriage or anything like that at the border. If he has a return ticket or some ties to the country it shouldn't be a problem, and as long has he doesn't stay longer than he is supposed to.
