What is the time frame from when you met your husband to when you got married?

Reason I ask is I think this guy is "the one"...he is talking about proposing within a year of us being together...says he would ask now except that he wants to get me a nice ring....lol

My first "almost" marriage was nine years into the relationship...so the thought of possibly marrying someone in a year or two is scary....and exciting!!!

Tell me your stories....TIA

Dh and i knew each other forever it seems! 8 years we knew each other before we got engaged. we dated almost all that time. we had to quit dating when our parents retired from the millitary in different places. then we saved the money and he flew me to him . (I shoulda flew him to Maine instead of me to Colorado). 5 months after getting back together again, we were engaged and married 2 month from that. been married for 5 years now. :)

We married 4 and half years after we started to go out together. The main reason we waited so long is that we were only 17 when we fell in love. We married when we both finished college.

Theresa, just listen to your heart.:heartsm: Don't be scared. :)

Well, dh and I met when we were Freshmen in Highschool, but at the time I was dating one of his friends. I didn't really see him again, until our Senior year. That's when we started dating. We were married 16 months later, and this August will make us 5 years together.

We did not "rush" to get married (I was only 17, he was 26) We got married on Dec 28, 1994. I am happy to say this year will be 9 years, we have 3 beautiful kids and have NEVER gotten into an argument!!

Dh and I started dating in October 1995, got engaged November of 1996, and got married December of 1997! He's 12 years older than me, so things were a bit awkward at first, but we both knew it was right. We've been married for 5-1/2 years and just had our first child together!

Just follow your heart and everything will work out!

Lori has me beat. We were married 6 months after meeting on a blind date(May 94) & have been married (Nov 94) 18 1/2 years and counting. I was 24 he was 35.

If he loves and respects you (visa versa) and you talk over all the important stuff I think you should follow your heart.:heartsm:

If your family & friends see him as a great guy that's the icing on the cake. They can be objective when you may be looking at him just all lovey dovey.:)

I'm so happy for you Theresa!!!

My husband and I got engagaed about 6 months after our blind date :~) at Christmas that year he gave me a ring but after our first date we both knew we were going to get married just had the feeling it was right... we married a little more than a year after we got engaged so I knew him for about 18 months when we got married and have been married almost 11 years, will be 11 in September...

I say follow your heart! It is hard especially after being hurt so bad but listen to what your heart says...
Good luck,
Eileen

DH and I met in July of 1986 and married December of 1987. BUT, we knew we would be married a couple of months into our relationship. I truly believe that "we knew", we just knew we were meant for each other. I totally agree to follow your heart with this Theresa, sometimes you can be with someone for years and not have the same feelings as for someone you have known only a short time. Best of luck to you and be happy!!:smball:

Dh and I had known each other since birth (our parents used to joke about us growing up and getting married), but we didn't date until we were in college and both had broken engagements. We married 11 months after we started dating.

MY parents got engaged after their 2nd date, and married about 6 months later. They'll be married 50 years in January.

I agree, follow your heart.
