I try to ask on the first date: "Spit or swallow?"

About three months. We just knew...

Been married thirty three years in February.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 5:03:25 PM EDT
Three years, but I did give her a promise ring after three months. (I was so young.)

It's like the old saying: 9 outta 10 times, you get kicked the nuts, but that 10th time makes it all worthwhile.

I'm embarressed to say now that I am divorced. 1 date, & then I gave her a ride home after church a few days later. I really screwed up because I didn't have a clue about heror what she was really like.

We were married about 9 months later, & married for 14 yrs & 10 days when she ran off with another man.

She never made me extatic, but I feel I did love her & was commited to our marriage. I will never be so stupid again.

Like I said it's imbaressing to admitt.

I'm seeing a common theme here. The guys who married within a few months of dating have been togather for a long time as apposed to those who dated till the cows came home. Any theories?


I'm on my 4th date, been talking for almost two months. Unfortunately she's two hours away. I think I'll know rather quickly if she's someone I'll pop the question to. We're both divorced (in our 30's) and have a LOT in common thus far. We both know what we're looking for. She's a sharp cookie, has a great career and is willing to have my children!

Same here. Married five years this April.

We've been married about 13 years and I STILL haven't asked her. Her Ex left her and moved out of state for several years and when he came back, they got a dissolution. We had lived together for a few years and she just started making all the wedding plans after the dissolution.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 8:10:38 PM EDT
First time a year or so. Second time,a couple of months.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 8:12:01 PM EDT
The first time, about two years, only she ran away before I got the chance to actually ask.

The second time, I'd only known her for about two or three weeks.

My theory is that your theory is baseless. I proposed after two years. Our engagement was one year. We've been together for 14 years.

I haven't talked to her since, so I don't know if there was a coke-fueled, cock-sucking rampage involved or not.

But yeah, same kind of idea.

6 months.

3 years until we married though.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 8:28:17 PM EDT
A very long time. We lived together for 8 years.

One day we were at the mall looking at bridal sets like we always do.

"Do you like that set?" I asked casually.

"Yeah, its nice." she says moving her hand around under the light to make the $1000 ring sparkle.

"You want it?"

She paused, stared at me with this blank look as the blood drained from her face.

"Are you serious?" She asked

"Yup."

She practically threw the ring back at the clerk and drug me out of the store.

"I thought you liked it?" I asked confused and I tried to keep my feet.

"Noway, that things a peice of shit!"


We ended up at Jareds after going to every store.

$2700 later she was completely happy with the CUSTOM bridal set.


Thats how it happened...

We had talked about it alot and just decided to GO FOR IT!

In your case, "How long since the sex change operation?!"

Hey that's what you get for being a wise ass.

Link Posted: 1/8/2006 9:25:41 PM EDT
7 years
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 9:30:32 PM EDT
I don't think how long matters, what matters is to who and before you can figure out who it is you're in love with you have to figure out who you are and why you're attracted to this person.

My first husband I dated for 4 years before marriage. Being a woman is differen't [obviously] then a man. I was raised very victorian and my parents were not supportive of me at all. I stood at the alter saying "say no, say no, say no" but said yes and gave it a more than scouts try for 11 years.

My husband now and I had been dating for 4 months before he asked me to marry him. I blew him off for 3 months and then accepted. We've been married for 9 years this month. The first 5 years were heavan sent. Then he had a horrible heart problem and depression for the last 4 years. It really tested our marriage. Now things are starting to get better. My illness hasn't helped things but we're managing, thankfully since he's pulling out of his depression.

Anyway, not sure your point but you never know. Making a marriage work depends on two people. Not time, not money, not love.

I'm tuned into everything you said thus far, but I'm kinda at the "not love" part.

Well I'm not expert mind you but I think love is relative to a lot of things. When the going gets rough and stays rough for a long period of time its no longer the love that keeps you committed to your marriage, its the love you had and want and the actual commitment and determination of the commitment that keeps you together. Not the warm fuzzy love you have when first married.
