We were married 13 months after meeting, engaged after 5. Best decision ever, he’s the loveliest man and I’ve never had such a fantastic relationship before. We spent a lot of time together, did a lot of talking and i officially moved in with him after 2.5months. We share the same outlook on life, both in our 30s, wanted children and saw no point waiting when we were both 100% sure. We have our first baby due in two months, we’ll have been together almost 2 years.

@Mine29: I knew a guy through my friend who married his wife like extremely fast… I forget how fast but probably around a year after they met. He cheated on his wife with my friend after he got married which is probably a sign that he rushed into things. He’s still married though so I don’t know if she ever found out.

My husbands aunt got married after 2 weeks. 2 weeks!! They recently celebrated their 50th anniversary and they are the best, happiest couple I know.

@Mine29: Married no, but similarly as being married, a couple who dated 4 months before buying their house together (meaning : they had not lived together yet) and now let me tell you it’s a huge disaster. They had a kid as a way to repair the relationship, relationship is still shitty, so they’re doing the only thing they can think of : trying for baby #2. *sighs*

My brother and his wife got married within 2 months of first meeting. They are still married 17 years later 🙂 so worked for them.
Honestly, I couldn’t imagine doing that! Its madness.

@Mine29: One of my bffs is getting married a couple weeks before their one year anniversary of dating. They got engaged after 7 or 8 months of dating and I know she ordered wedding supplies after about 4 months of dating!

@Mine29: I know a couple who moved in three months after they started dating and were married around 6 months. They are happy, wonderful together, and have a 2 year old. I think it just depends on the couple… I can’t imagine being able to plan a wedding that quickly, LOL

My Fiance and I dated for 2 months 2 weeks exactly when he proposed. We will be engaged about 3 months before our wedding. We are both out of school, both have jobs, we just kept saying “When you know, you know…” we didn’t really see a point of waiting…..

My parents got married after 6 weeks of meeting each other.. And yes they are still together!
I know of a couple of people who got engaged after less than a year, and were married or will be married only a few months after their 1st anniversary. Two off the very top of my head.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Rosehill Community Center
My good friend got married about 10 months after officially dating. She met him in high school, so they already knew each other, but she moved back to another country for a few years, so they were apart for a bit. On a whim, he decided to go visit, hoping she liked him, and she did, so they started dating! A couple months later she came here to visit him, and he proposed in the airport. Then just a few months after that was their wedding! It was super fast to me, but since he needed to be married to become a citizen in her country, and they already kind of knew each other, it makes sense. I’m happy it worked out well for them!

My cousin met his wife in the summer 2006 and were married in February 2007 (engaged in October). I remember that seeming fast, but he was late 30’s, she was early 40’s and second time around. They had their daughter January 2008 and they’re still married!
My SO and I have been together for almost a year and a half, and I would have married him before the year mark, things have just ended up being prioritized differently because we ended up buying a house MUCH sooner than planned.

One of my Dad’s former employees met a dude at church and married him within a month. She was really offended when my Dad asked “What’s the rush?” but you know, she had two kids of her own to think about and this guy had five kids of his own so it’s not like my Dad was being some major asshole by asking. He moved into her house with his brood and proceeded to make her life hell in the subsequent months. She eventually divorced him – when she did, he came into the house while she was at work and destroyed a bunch of shit. Her super Christian/Baptist friends (the ones who introduced them and encouraged their sudden marriage) were angry at her for getting a divorce.
A friend’s sister met some guy online and married him within the year. It didn’t take long for them to divorce once they moved in together and she found out he was a controlling asshole.
My grandparents married each other after three weeks in the late 1920s and they were married until the day he died in 1991. They had seven kids together and a shitty relationship. I know quick marriages work out for many people but they sure as shit haven’t worked out for any of the people I’ve known!

I know a few people who did that, but I didn’t know them back when they got married. I recently learned that my childhood neigbor got married only 8 months after meeting her husband (they’ve been married for about 40 years). They were in their 30s when they met and she’d already figured that she’d become an old spinster. They met and hit it off and didn’t delay.
I also have a co-worker who married her husband after something crazy like 2 months? They are still married but she says it was an insane thing to do. They were also in their 30s when they met.
I think that it’s less risky to do something like this if you are older when you meet since you have so much more experience and a stronger basis for comparison. But I still can’t imagine MARRYING someone after knowing them for such a short period of time.
