mrsziggy :  we got engaged after 3 weeks! He didn’t actually pop that question with the ring because he wanted to do it at Christmas, but we decided to get married and started planning. We have known each other for 11 years and know each other really well. I was married before and my parents and my ex’s parents never got along. It wasn’t weird at all that my mom never met my current SO’s mom before the engagement. They actually started texting and got along great. They consider each other sisters now. 

I have had some slack from people who were friends with my ex, but that’s about it.

We got engaged after 1 year of meeting. He told me the night we met he was going to marry me! Never felt like it impacted anything and most people reacted very positively. We are in our early 30’s so age might contribute to it go smoothly.

He proposed on our one year anniversary. About 10 days after that the wedding was planned, booked and payed for. 6 month later we had our planned destination-elopement on Maui.

After we decided what we want to do, we told the families. My mom went with me to pick out a dress (well I picked it out and took her with me to confirm my pick). No one ever said anything. Why would they? It’s me and him getting married. No one else. Granted we are 36/37 (first marriage, I am European. Marriage wasn’t even on my radar till I met my American husband)
