  • We went out for a year before we got married and had at least one date each week. We still have a date night each week where we go out to eat and/or a movie.

  • You mean like formal dating, like "Pick ya up at seven" kind of thing? Well that would be zero.
    Seriously, we were just friends for years, then one day out of the blue, he asked me to marry him. He even went to my parents beforehand and asked them for permission to ask me. I had to think for a second before I knew it was the right decision, I said yes and we jumped into my van, went to the JOP and got married right then. Been married for almost 12 years now, two kids and one on the way. Not the norm to be sure, but it worked out for us.

  • My DH and I spent every weekend together for 6-7 months before we got married. We also spent a lot of time together during the week as we worked in the same location. There was a lot of time spent with each other in other words even though most people date for much longer than half a year before getting married.

  • I don't know, not many..we met in late November/early Dec and were living together by mid January. We lived together for about a year and a half before we got married. Not typical and everyone thought we did everything too fast, but we have been married for 13.5 years, so it was good.

  • Not a lot of "dates" we were 14 and 15 when we met and neither of us wanted our parents hauling us around. We spent a lot of time together just hanging out and getting to know each other. We were 16 and 17 when we got married.

  • A real honest-to-goodness date? None. We spent a lot of time together, with our families and just us. We went to church together. That's all. Married a year after we started dating.

  • My DH and I dated for almost 5 years before we got married, can't remember exactly how many dates.

    Answer by mommy_jules at 4:03 PM on Feb. 13, 2011

  • Two official dates. After the second we never spent a day apart. We've been married 11 years.
