Rushed Marriage?

Anyone else sort of rush into marriage? Me and DH dated for about 6 months, I found out I was pregnant (we were both in the military) and we decided we shold get married right after I found out.  We have now been married for almost 6 years and are doing great.  We have had one major disagreement that we didnt have the chance to talk about before we got married and that was how many kids we wanted.  I have wanted one more for awhile, and he is happy with just the three of us.   Anyone else had a rushed marriage, and if so, did it cause any sort of disagreements later on down the road? Are you still happily married?

I had a rushed engagement. We were together for four years when he asked me but it only took us a week to actually get married. Does that count?

Not me.  We got engaged two years after we met and after a year of living together.  Got married 9 months after we got engaged.  That was a bit rushed/last minute because of legal issues (had a quick courthouse wedding and then an actual ceremony 11 months later).  I didn't take out my birth control until after we were legally married, and after we had talked about kids, life goals, etc.

However, my brother and his wife are similar to you.  They were both military and had been dating a while.  She got pregnant and they secretly got married.  12 years later they have had some Major Issues.  He got her pregnant twice after their first when she had explicitly said she wasn't ready for more (they were doing pull out method and he didn't pull out), and she has cheated on him with both sexes.  They are still together, but she travels a lot for work and their relationship is still very strained.

DH and I dated for 7 months before we got married. We got engaged and found out we were pregnant. We were already planning our wedding when we found out but just moved up the date.

Yes! Lol we married 5 weeks after we met and in high school.

 We have had plenty of "issues" but shockingly enough nothing major. That was lucky!
