  • I honestly went in one date and knew this was the man I wanted to marry. We dated for 7 months and then got married. We've been married for over a year now :)

  • I think it all depends. I knew I would marry my ex the very first time I ever saw him. My boyfriend...I knew on our 1st date we'd be serious, on our second date that I loved him, and by about 3 weeks in I was pretty sure I'd want to marry him someday. We haven't gotten to that point yet, but I think we will.

  • I think it takes months to truly love someone. You have to get to know them before you can love them. I think the amount of time differs depending on your age, your maturity level and how much time you spend/day or week with that person. If either of you have kids already, the time you spend dating should increase exponentially. I dated my husband for 2 1/2 years before we got married. We were both in our 30s, I had kids, he did not. I knew I loved him after about 4-5 months, but we took things very slowly due to the kids.

  • We were dating about 2 weeks when I knew I was in love with him. I'm not sure how long we'd been dating when I knew I would marry him. Probably a couple of months. We've been married 12 years now.
