  • 3 weeks is not long enough, but that is just how I feel. I was with my husband for 4 years before I got married and we have been married almost 5 years.

  • I would honestly wonder why he was trying to rush things so much.

  • I think it's too soon although if you are willing to work very hard and be kind to one another you may be very happy together.

  • I could personally never do it because I fear divorce but if you know, you know. Only you can decide what is best for you. The fact that you're on Cafemom asking other women their opinions shows me that you're not 100% sure which is something you really need to take into consideration. Remember, it's easy to get married but harder to get unmarried. (((Hugs)))

  • can i ask how old you two are?

    seems too quick if you are young
    if you two are older and have been around the block of love realtionships, then maybe

  • My husband and I met on July 6th on July 31st he told me he loved me and a week later he proposed (not as fast as your guy but still pretty quick). We married on May 13th the following year. We have now been together 11 years. We were young and naive. I never thought about the future and really had no expectations what so ever. We got very lucky in that as we grew up we grew together and not apart like so many other couples do. I just knew that he was the one. In past relationships I felt suffocated if I saw the guy two times in the same week, even now a decade later I still ache to see my husband and go stir crazy if we are apart for any amount of time. What does your gut say? What does your heart say? Are they in sync?

  • Honestly, I don't think that you can possibly learn enough about a person in the span of two weeks to make such a HUGE decision. It's not just about getting to know the facts about each other, but it's about learning how to deal in different situations. Most of the couples I know who have rushed into it regret it. It could work, I'm not saying there's no possibility. I just personally wouldn't do it. I don't see the risk in waiting, but I do the risk in jumping into it. Whatever you choose to do, I hope it works out for the best. :)
