As long as you need until you're ready.
My husband and I were together for four years before we got married. If I didn't have any medical problems and didn't need his insurance for surgery, we would have waited longer than that.

I was with my husband for 4 years before we got married... We also lived together for 3 1/2 of those years and had a child together, so it felt like we were already married. Lol

long enough to get to know all their faults so you can decide whether or not you don't mind living with them forever.

3 years. But I knew within the first year I wanted ever after. Of course the first year he was deployed, but that helped us to really communicate and learn about each other. (Started dating Just as he was about to leave)

Due to certain circumstances, I was living in his house while he was gone, never moved out, neither of us wanted me to.


We talked about it for at least a year before he came home from work last month and proposed. A week later we were married.

Mind you, we went through a whole bunch of crazy stuff in those 3 years and found that it made us stronger.

We were together for almost 5 years before we got married. My parents were only together for 8 months before getting married, and they're coming up on their 27th anniversary.
