Err good luck. I’m sure there are many success stories of 1 month in engagements*…

my SO & I were best friends for 4 years before starting a relationship & he moved in after 1 month together. We have talked about marriage & children early on in our relationship but both decided to wait a while so we’re not ‘rushing’ things in other peoples eyes…

Taking the plunge when you know is hard work! A year strong after deciding to get engaged is excellent news! 
I would’ve 100% married my SO straight away, but waiting & saving made more ‘sense’

Nothing wrong with a quick proposal. Maybe a fairly long engagement though? 

My husband and I got engaged after 5 months of dating. 2 years married. Going strong. 

Best wishes for a happy future to the two of you!

If I didn’t go through something similar to this I would be super skeptical too!! My now husband and I dated 3 weeks before he proposed. I am SO not an impulsive person but it felt right. All our friends and family thought we were insane but, here we are 6 years married with a 3.5 year old we adore more than anything ♡ As they say,  “when you know, you know.”

Congratulations bee!!! Don’t worry about any one else’s timeline but your own.  Enjoy every moment of this beautiful time together

We managed to hold out for 6 months but the discussions had started long before that! We are at 18 months now – wedding in 10 months time – I would have married him 2 months in. Crazy really and against all logic but I absolutely know that this is right! We both also lost previous partners to cancer not so long ago so I think everyone was rather worried that we had both gone mad and this going to end badly, not that anyone actually said it, but I can’t agree more with – when you know you know…  and I know!

Congratulations! While I think a month is a bit premature for a proposal, a long engagement could balance it out a bit. I didn’t get engaged until 2 1/2 years into our relationship, but we moved in together less than two months after we met. I do not recommend this by the way and it only happened due to job circumstances (I was offered a job with a quick start in the city she lived in and was spending most of time around her place anyway at this point) but it worked out for us 🙂

Congrats, Bee! Some bees are so vehement, but I think deep down, they’re jealous!

I’d love pictures of your ring :):) We love ring pics! Both of your proposals sound extremely romantic!

betyl :  We have a similar story.  We grew up down the street, went to high school together, lots of mutual friends, but we never really talked to each other.  She contacted me on facebook chatting about coming out etc, and then we met up.  We eloped 3 months later (we made a bet that if Trump won the election we would elope to ensure we could be legally married…we were nervous).  It’s been two years and we are a month away from our two year wedding anniversary and we are actually having a “wedding celebration/vow renewal” on our anniversary now that we can afford a wedding 🙂 

Absolutely hands down the best impulse decision I’ve ever made.  I want to marry her “again” in a few weeks just as badly as I wanted to the first time.  She’s the one, and I knew right away.  Sometimes you just know.  We certainly did.
