    I think people that set a date to get married and then reach that goal are just lucky (and I don’t mean lucky in that I’m envious).  I believe in setting goals and achieving them but there is so much more going on in a relationship.  If a woman wants to get married in a year and then does it then great for her.  I can only talk for myself, but marriage was the LAST thing on my list, but that’s changed since I’ve been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend.  Now I have the urge to get married, but not to just anyone.  I’ve set a sort of deadline–I told him that I am happy to wait but I can’t wait forever.

    I kind of set a deadline.  I said that if I hadn’t met a guy that I was enjoying dating by my 35th birthday, then I would try online dating.  Of course, making that timeline freed me up for thinking about other things and not worrying so much if I’d meet a guy right then… because I knew I’d worry about that in a few months.

    Needless to say, fiance and I started going out during that time, and by my 35th birthday, any thoughts of online dating went far out the window!

    Well I did set a deadline. When I turn fifteen I started telling everyone I was going to get married at 30. Everyone laughted at me. ( I guess I would of too ) Funny part is that I am getting married three months before I turn 30. 

    Been with my FH for 7 years.

    I set no timeline for finding someone to marry, although growing up in a small town, I always thought I’d get married fairly young (early 20s). Now that I have my guy, I do have more concrete ideas of when I’d like to get married and have kids by.
