How long before you got married?

 Im just curious how long it was before everyone got married and what amount of time was spent engaged and planning the wedding.

My husband and I met in Oct 2012 as acquaintances through a now ex of mine, and started dating in March 2013, engaged in Oct of 2013 and married by Dec 2013... a total of 9 months dating to marriage...

Did anyone else just know and act on finding your ''soul mate'' as quickly as we did?

I met my DH. Moved in with him a month later. We got engaged like 4-5 months later and were married like 1 month before our 1 year of meeting. We are celebrating 11years of marriage on less than 2 weeks.

My husband and I met online. From the first day he came to pick me up for us to hang out we have been with eachother. That was 2004. Two months after meeting I found out I was pregnant and the next month we got married. Still married to this day. So there was no time in between for dating or engagement before we got married but just a couple of months.

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

We started dating in October 2005, got engaged in October 2006, and got married in August 2008. I wanted a long engagement so I had time to plan as well as finish my bachelor's degree (which I got in May 2008). So almost three years together before we got married. 

Looking back, we probably could have moved the wedding date up, because a few months after we got married, I started my master's degree and that was no problem... but it happens!
