    And how long did you date before getting engaged?

    Previous to my current relationship I had been in two not so great relationships. Then, about 4 months ago I met my current boyfriend. He is everything I could ever ask for in a person. Smart, caring, honest, fun, loves to cook with me, and just a very well rounded person.

    In my last 2 year relationship, I was unsure if I could be with that person forever. Now, in my current 3 month relationship, I know he is the one for me. And the best part is, he feels the same! Kind of scary I could know this so soon, but it just feels right.

    A proposal will probably happen next summer, and then a wedding the following summer. That will make me 24 when I am married.

    So tell me, how long did you date, and how old were you when you got married??

    Dated for 14 months before engagement, married 5 months later. I was just shy of 23 (sounds sooooooooo young now, almost 18 years later!).

    Met when I was 29, he was 38.
    He moved in with me after just a couple of months of dating.
    Got engaged when I was 32, married at 33 (he was 42).

    First marriage for both of us.

    Prior to husband, had 2 long term relationships ... when marriage came up my response was to vomit. I'm serious. Ended soon after. Pretty much after an immediate conversation with my mom ... "will he make me happy for the rest of my life?" Her response, "if you have to ask me, what do you think."

    I knew it was right with husband from date #3. It was date #2 for him.

    I've been married twice...
    the first time...we met when I was 18 and got married when I was 21, only last 4yrs. Everyone told me that we were too different and I didn't believe it until I graduated from college and we both realized we wanted different things.

    The second time...I definitely knew what I wanted and what I was willing to put up with.
    We met in 1998 and were engaged by spring of 1999, married in 2000 (I was 29). We are still happily married with 2 little girls

    We've been married for 9 years this month, second child to be born anytime now. We dated for about a year (almost a year and a half), and we got married 2 months before I turned 18. (Yes, I know that is REALLY young.)

    If you know, and he feels the same way, that is great! :) Congratulations to you both!

    We met when I was 27.

    We got engaged a year and a half later, then married a year and a half after that, so I was 30.

    That was 20 short years ago!

    I was 22 when I got married. We had only been dating a year when we got married. The wedding was supposed to be a little bit later, but with my husband in the military we decided to get married earlier so I could student teach where he was stationed.

    Met when I was 23 and dated for about 4 years because I wanted to really make sure as years were going by, that he really is the right one for me to spend my life with. Divorce isn't an option unless it's abuse/cheating related.
