Getting engaged after 3 months of dating
How long did you know your DH 3 months does seem soon, but I guess I can't really say that it's too soon for you guys.
I think you guys are the only ones who an decide whats right for you. We were together for about 4 years before we "tied the knot" though.
but I've still caught her drinking wine while pregnant. I moved in with her after a month of dating and apparently she's had her ex's move in that quick as well.
She loves attention and sometimes I think she loves drama... I'm not that big on partying, unlike her, I've only had one other long term, serious relationship, and I have never cheated...
But a lot of my friends have been getting married with fewer than this magical two years under their belts, and it's making me second-guess my rule. Does it really matter at all how long you date before you get married?
You're lying in bed with the man you've fallen madly in love with. What are you thinking asking someone you've known for three months that question?? If someone's divorce is taking a long time to happen, it's either financial issues, a struggle to reach an agreement or laziness. When are we going to introduce our kids to each other? He might feel angry or hatred, even, but I think that there's a part of every divorced person (whether they want to admit it or not) that will always love a little part of his or her ex no matter what.
It's only been a few months, but you are SURE he's the one. Do you expect him to answer, "Now that I've met YOU, I'm going to make sure my divorce is final next week so we can move in together, get married, merge our families and live happily ever after! I do know a few divorced guys who dive in head first into every relationship and end up divorced three or four times. That doesn't mean he will never get serious with you. No offense, but at the beginning of a relationship, the two of you are into each other. My opinion (and you can take it or leave it) is that you better be pretty darn sure it's going to work out when you bring your kids into the mix. If you have to say that to someone, you have your answer: Because he doesn't.
I also think marriage is the best thing for me to do since she is pregnant, but I feel like I'm still in the honeymoon phase and I don't feel like I know her true self yet or that I love her for who she really is.
She's had a bad history of cheating, which I just found out, and I think she's having alcohol withdrawals since her pregnancy...
Results showed that couples that had dated an average of twenty-five months before marriage were most happily married at the conclusion of the study.
