POLL: how long were you dating before you got engaged?
Please only married or engaged people answer. I'm just curious what the average is. My boyfriend and I have been together nearly 8 years, we have a son and a house together and I'm starting to give up on the idea of marriage :lol:

We were dating about 2 years before we got engaged, and married about a year after that. Saying this, it was a bit of a different situation than most will face as I was here on a work permit and at the time getting more than 2 years was unheard of... so we had to bite the bullet and decide what we wanted to do.

To be honest, I wouldn't ever get married again. IMO, all it is, is an expensive day out and a piece of paper that complicates things should it not work out. I love my husband and my family, but now that I'm a bit older I now have a different outlook on things.

First marriage was 2 years. Second was 3 months!, lol, but we had known each other for 8 years and were older.

I'm going to answer, even though I am now divorced.

My ex-husband and I started dating in September of 2002, were engaged January 2003, and married June 2003. We moved in together May of 2003.

I'd just like to get married before I'm 30, and I'm running out of time lol, I'm 27. When I told him I was pregnant he asked if I wanted to get married(real romantic *eye roll*) I told him I didn't want to get married just because I was pregnant, we had been together a bit over a year at that point, and I was just a few months shy of my 21st birthday. I wanted to get married for the "right" reasons...a lot of good that did me, marriage hasn't been brought up since

DraftyAiresMum 03-16-2013 03:31 PM

Then bring it up. Tell him the way you're feeling and why.

Hubby and I did all the DON'TS for dating and marriage.

We met in a bar, moved into together after two weeks, engaged in three months, married in under a year and next month we will be married for 4 years....happily! Not saying that it has been all unicorn farts and sunshine but we are very much in love even though there are days we don't like each other. (Today happens to one of those days...LOL!)
