@Moraz: We were less than a year too.  I knew a couple of months in.  I knew what I was looking for and he’s the whole package.  I didn’t see a point in waiting for a certain # of months/years.  We’re in our 30s, why wait?  We’re only waiting on the wedding to give our guests the chance to get things in order.  I’d marry him tomorrow at the courthouse.

@Moraz:  Not me personally. But my brother proposed after 5 days!! Yep, 5 days! In his defence, even though I still think it was a completely stupid thing to do, he had been talking to her online for a few weeks. He flew out to meet her for a month long holiday together and wound up proposing 5 days in. They married 10 months later, and are now married just over a year and near divorcing.

Mind you, my brother isn’t the brightest! I think when you’re older it’s definitely easier to know what you want, but it still takes some time to get to know someone. I’m all for moving in quickly, after all, that’s the best way to get to know someone πŸ™‚

My father married his current wife after 6 months together, she was 4 months pregnant at the time also. They have now been married 15 years and have 4 beautiful children together. So it’s not always doomed as most people seem to think! πŸ™‚

We were engaged 2.5 months after our first date, and while sometimes I do wonder if it was a crazy decision, I couldn’t be luckier in how well my crazy decision is working out πŸ™‚

We are having a 3 year engagement though! Not really because of when we got engaged, but it probably is part of why, since if I’d been waiting for years and planning a wedding in my head, I might have wanted it sooner.

  • Wedding: November 2014 - Serafino Wines

It was about 11 months officially dating for us. At that point we had known each other for about 8 years and we’d also dated previously in high school. We are having a 22 month engagement, marring in November this year! I thought we were fast getting engaged (comparatively) but there’s some pretty fast ones on here! I think when you know, you just know. A lot of people said “FINALLY!” when we got engaged πŸ™‚

@Moraz:  We got engaged 9 months & 10 days from the day we met/first date.  We are also in our 30’s which I’m sure has a lot to do with it for the same reasons you mentioned, plus we don’t have time to burn at this age!  We have a long engagement though, 14 months.  we would have liked a shorter one but our schedules put us at that mark.  It is finally in our sights now though πŸ™‚

I think we made it to 11 months before he proposed. It’s been great and I’m happy to be married to him now.
