How long was it until you married your DH?

And how long had it been since your last relationship? How long have you guys been together?

I knew my DH for only a couple months... lol. :] And my last relationship had been about a year ago. We've been together almost 4 years.

The reason why I ask, curiousity aside, is that my BIL is bitching and cursing his ex-gf. He's wondering HOW she could've said she loved him just 10 months ago (he actually got it down to the day... which was kind of pathetic), and be married now. Well, it's actually very easy... he was abusive towards her, but aside from that, it brought me to ask you ladies.
I'm not judging or anything! :D

  • We married 5 years after we met, but we knew after 2 weeks that we were madly in love and would marry =) We just had to get our ducks in a row first. We'll be married 7 years this summer.

  • My husband and I had been dating for about a year before we got married. Something like a year and 3 months.
    I hadn't been serious about anyone for a year when we started dating. I dated someone a couple of months before my husband, but I didn't have feelings for him.
    We've been together 14 years this month, and will celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary on September 6th.
