  • Dh and I dated 4 months then were engaged. Then 3 1/2 months til we got married at the courthouse. We've been married for 6 years now. We waited 3 years after marriage to get pregnant not because we couldn't but because I wasn't ready.

  • Dated 3 years before marriage. We had been married 5 years before having children. We were engaged for a year before marrying.

  • We dated for about a year and got pregnant in Nov/Dec. 2002. I got my engagement ring as a birthday present on Feb 18th and we got married 4 days later on the 22nd. Our baby girl was born September 2003. A tad fast. :D

    We've been married 8 years, have three great kids and we're happy as clams!
