Three days from first date to engagement.

They got married at the courthouse.

And are still together over 30 years later and blissfully in love.

I dated a man who married a lady 5 days after I broke up with him. They were engaged for a day. Yes, they are still married, miserable. They are mormon and do not believe in divorce

llevinso:  It’s crazy.  And they’re ADORABLE together.  They both said they knew at the first date.

The quickest actual time from dating to married that I have seen was a guy who was single and asked me out for coffee in March, to which I said no because I had just started seeing someone else. By August he was married. 

However, the most jumping-the-gun in general I’ve seen was a high school friend who bought a house with a guy she’d been dating 5 months. Bought a house. I brought my incredulity to my friends who said they could understand moving in together or getting engaged in that short of time, but one woman scoffed “I wouldn’t even buy a house with my husband of five years these days!” As of now, I think the couple has been dating 7 months and just got engaged.

My ex husband proposed to his new gf after a few weeks (while we were still technically married and had only been separated for just over a month), they have been together on and off since but haven’t gotten married yet.

My husband and I got engaged 2 months after our first date.  We got married 8 months later.  

It was 11 months and 6 days from the day we met to our wedding day – August 3, 2010 to July 9, 2011.

My parents were engaged after less than a month of dating. They’ll be celebrating their 34th anniversary this October!

5 days. YEAH. The wedding did happen, and they’re still married more than 10 years later! 

It felt very strange at the time though. Not something I could do!

My brother and sister-in-law dated for about a month, got engaged and then had a courthouse wedding a few days later. We didn’t even know he was dating anyone until he called and told our family that he was married- my mom was not happy haha! But as soon as we met her the whole family fell in love and my parents threw them a reception a few months later. They have been married for 8 years now, had two children together, and my brother adopted her daughter that she had before they were together (biological dad not in the picture).

A girl I went to high school with got engaged at about 20 years old to a guy she’d been dating for 2 months. They did not end up getting married. 

A girl who is a friend of DH’s got engaged and moved across the country for a guy she’d been dating for a week while on vacation (to be fair they did know each other previously when they were in grade school, so the guy wasn’t a total stranger). They had broken up within a couple months.

Other than that, Darling Husband and I would be the shortest time to engagement that actually got married. We got engaged in just shy of a year, married 4 months later and have been married almost a year and a half.
