    My parents! Married within eight months. Still together — going on 38 years!

    I also have a good friend who met and married within the seven months. They’re still together five years later.

    I know a couple who talked online for 10 or so months just as friends, then decided to meet, and a week into that trip the man proposed. They’ve been married for years now and have cute little kids!

    Dh’s parents got engaged around 6 months and married at 9. Darling Husband was born 9.5 months later, and now they have 4 other children and are happy. Though apparently they fought A LOT while Darling Husband was growing up. No surprise there, his mother is a stubborn loud irish woman.

    We also got engaged at 6 months, and married at about 10.5. But we knew we wanted to get married within a month, and started wedding planning at about 6 weeks. Its different for everyone.

    Two couples:

    First is a girl I work with who met a guy in April at a training course (he works for the same company but they had never met previously. They had moved in together within a couple of weeks, engaged shortly after and we just went to their wedding earlier this month (7 months after their first date).

    Second is SO’s cousin who came out of a long term relationship and met someone else about a month later (in March). They got engaged in August and are planning a February wedding (11 months).

    All of these people are over 35  and all have been married before so I figure maybe they just ‘knew’?

    I grew up in a really religious household, so I know quite a few people who got married quick just to have sex and/or move out of mommy and daddy’s house. Out of them all, I can’t think of one who is legitimately happy or still together. I think it’s cause they married for the wrong reasons and because they didn’t truly know each other. Cause even if you know yourself, I find it hard to believe you can truly know someone in six months or less.

    One of my best friends got engaged after four months of meeting on a blind date. Two beautiful girls and seventeen years later, they’re still happily married!

    I know someone who got married 3 months after dating because they got pregnant in their first month of dating.

    My grandparents met, dated, got engaged, and married all within less than 6 months.  Their story just seems so surreal to me. Its definitely not the norm, but they are still madly in love decades later. I don’t really know any younger couples who have moved so quickly though.

    Darling Husband and I did.  We were dating for 6 mos and 22 days before we got married.  But two weeks into dating we knew we were the ones for each other so it worked.  Now we have been married for over 2 years.  Laughing
