My Fiance and I also met online through a mututal friend. We got engaged after 10 months. I know that’s not a short time for some, but it’s a shorter time than I originally thought it would have taken for me to decide I’d want to marry someone.  While some think it’s too soon (and I don’t blame them for thinking that), we’re good with the speed things are going.

We got engaged after 6 weeks of dating.  Been together 16.5 years at this point! 2 kids and a mortgage paid off we are finally getting around to actually saying I do.

 My sister met and married her husband in almost exactly 3 months, 18 years ago.

We got engaged at 5 1/2 months. 

 

When we met we were both living with roommates. Mine moved out (it was the end of our lease) and we would hang out at my house all that last month, then I moved to the bay area. He missed me so he got a job and moved out. I told him he could crash with me for a few weeks till he found his own place but then we decided to just stay together. A few months later we moved out and got a place just us two and get engaged soon there after.

 

He’s packed, hauled, and unpacked all my shit like 4 times so he must love me a LOT. haha.

We got engaged 6 months after we met, and married 10 months after we met. We’ve been together for 4 years (yesterday!), and married for 3 years. We have a 2 year old and a 4 month old now 😀

My sister was engaged and married within 5 months… 13 years ago. Her marriage is better than ever. I think it depends on the people and the relationship.

I also should add she was 20 at the time and alot of people thought they were making a big mistake.

maritimebride2016:  not a fast engagement story here but a very fast move in. I moved in with him 6 weeks after our first date. 😀 i was living with mon beforehand and wanted to move out and since i spend about 90% of the 6 weeks at his place he invited me to move in. Mom though i was crazy lol

maritimebride2016:  I have 4 family members who are currently engaged after meeting online. All of them. Each of them have been dating for less than one year, one couple married within the first 6 months! Each couple has their own timeline- we all have a 50/50 chance of death doing us part, right? 😉

maritimebride2016:  We were friends for 7 years before we started dating, and we dated for 7 months before we got engaged. We’ll be getting married about 1 year and 2 months after we started dating.
