  • no time amount matters as long as you love and respect eachother and are not drunk when you decide to get married

  • Depends. I dated a man for four years, we never talked about marriage and then he walked out. My husband now, we moved in after dating for a few months. Got married a year later. It depends on the circumstances. If it's something you want with this person, or just want in general.

  • Well......we dated 6 months before I wedding, but I had know him for a few years. My parents met and married within two months and have been married 29 years. I think it is really just up to the people. You know how you feel more than anyone else. That being said, I have two daughters and I would want them to date someone for at least a year. I am such a hypocrite!!!!! LOL

  • My fiance and I knew from the moment we met. We could've gotten married a month into it lol We got engaged 9 months into the relationship. It's about where you are in your life, if you're truly engaged for the right reasons, and if you feel they are the one. My honey and I knew right away. Time does not matter as long as your heart is genuinely and truly in the right place.

  • It depends on the person. There is no set time frame. Some people are together their whole lives and never get married.
