Dating before getting engaged
The day I married Ashley, I must have been asked more than 50 times whether I was nervous.
The barrage of questions surprised me because I had no reservations about giving her my heart.
(I think we would have gotten engaged a little sooner had we started out living in the same city.) We were married in July, 2009, after a quick, five-month engagement (and I seriously couldn’t imagine doing it another way, unless it were to make it an even faster engagement, followed, perhaps, by an elopement).
Just curious how long people were dating before he popped the question - and after getting engaged, how long did it take you to set a date?
If you have a relationship/dating question I can help answer, you can send me your letters at As a follow-up to yesterday’s discussion, I’m curious, those of you have been engaged: How long did you date your significant other first?
You can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram.
No matter where you get married, don't forget to check that the marriage is legally accepted in your home country/country of residence.
If you are in love and ready to get married, you probably know your partner really well already.After all, online dating is the perfect way to meet someone to discuss the plot with and hopefully they'll explain what happened when you ducked out for more popcorn.If you're sure you want a long term partner and this is “the one”, we couldn't be happier for you.While online dating is a fantastic way to meet potential spouses, it also raises the likelihood of a long-distance partnership for some.Picking a color theme for your reception pales in comparison to the questions of where to live; which visas to arrange and what to do if things go wrong.
