    Marriage Question

    I'm getting a lot of heat from the lady to pull the trigger. Please let me know what you did, thanks.

    I did it on my own and I think all of the peope who complain about marriage are crazy. That said, I sure would be apprehensive if she is pressuring you.

    Same here. I made the decision when the timing was right. No pressure needed.

    4 years, still not married. I think it's pretty common for people to date or even live together for a long time before tying the knot.

    We dated 2 years. Engaged for 1 year. The timing was right for us. You know if it's right for you.

    Re: Marriage Question

    I said 3 years, however, we liked each other (a lot) for many months before we started dating and after we started dating it was obvious very quickly that this was it. We were actually engaged after a year, but didn't get married for a couple years because we were physically separated after that first year while I was in grad school. We got married right after I finished and moved back (14 years ago).

    Re: Marriage Question

    7 years, but we were broken up for 1.5.

    Just do what you're comfortable with, but don't be a wimp either.

    Re: Marriage Question

    Do you mean before getting engaged? We dated for two and got married two months before the 3yr anniversary.

    Re: Marriage Question

    Met wife in 1998. Moved in together in 1999. Got married in 2006. Had first kid in 2008. Had 2nd kid in 2011. Best part: She is still a stick of dynamite to this very day, and a demon in the sack.
