  • he dd not ask my parents permission and my mom was not happy about it. I think mostly because I was so young I was only 18 just graduating. And because we didn't know eachother that long. He asked me 2 months after dating. My mom said it wouldn't last since we were so young when we got engaged and here we are 7 years of marriage and almost 11 years of being together still going strong

  • We'd known one another for three years, not dating, just good buddies. I'd been out of state for a while going to a dog training academy, but had graduated early and sent him an e-mail saying I'd be back in a week's time just to let him know what was up. During that week, he asked his mother for the family heirloom wedding rings, driven five hours to ask my mother if he could ask me to marry him and looked into employment in the area in which I live. When I got home, he was waiting for me, which was a real surprise, I didn't think he'd be there. He handed me the rings and said "Here are your rings." I said "What? What have you been smoking, these aren't mine!" He said "They're yours if you want them, will you marry me?" So, without ever dating, I said yes and we were married 28 minutes later. Our first kiss was in front of the JOP. We just celebrated our 11th anniversary.

  • I knew dh since we were about 13.... didn't get together until I was 24 almost 25. We dated for about 2 months when we started talking marriage. We got married about 7 months later. No, he didn't ask my parents. I was divorced with 2 children.

  • DH and I had been dating exactly a year when he proposed. He proposed on our Anniversary. He did ask my dad's blessing before hand.
