  • We were together three years before we were married. Five months is too soon for me. You can't really know someone in that short of a time frame in my mind.

  • DH and I only dated 5 months before getting married, and we moved in together after only 6 weeks. But we had known each other and were friends for a year before we got together.

  • We dated five months and have been married 3 and a half years. We are still married and not looking at divorce, so I believe that short relationships can result in long marriages if the relationship is right. We have a two year old daughter and a son due in November.

  • Got married 6 months after we started dating, and have been married almost 4 years. We still love each other as much as in the beginning! We have 2 kids. My parents dated for 6 months before they got married, and have been married 34 years

  • We were together a whopping 3 1/2 months before me got married!! Are happily married for 3 1/2 years not looking at divorce, still very much in love, and thinking of another child within 2 years. He is my best friend. I was with a person for 7 years before him and we were engaged, and I thank God I never married the jerk. Sometimes I think it's a gut feeling or sense that it's right. We take our vows very seriously and say communication, trust, and respect is key to a strong healthy marriage. Best of luck!
