I Got Married 3 Weeks After We Met.......

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I married my husband, who I met online, 3 weeks after we met face to face, 3 months after we first talked online. I had 4 year olds at the time.

Ask me anything


We have been married for 5 years. We have a little girl together and this year, he adopted my 4 year old twins. We have a very solid marriage. It's stronger than a lot of my friends' marriages.

Good for you. Glad it's working out. My DH proposed after 6 weeks so I don't see the big deal.
A year after my daddy passed away, my mom met someone online. They are happily married. It does happen.

I was married super quick too.  I was 6mo's pregnant when I met my husband.  Met him in Nov, engaged by Dec.  Moved in together in Feb.  Son born in March (he signed birth cert even though not bio his) married that Oct. pregnant again by Dec. This was our 1st year. 

Have now been married 16yrs and we have 4 beautiful children.

I believe that when you know that someone is the one it's like bells and whistles going off. My husband and I married 20 days after the 1st time we talked to each other and 18 days after our 1st date. We saw each other in Sept. 1985 but didn't talk until 10/2 and we married on 10/22. We have been married for 28 years and our sons are 27 (born 10 mos. and 7 days after we got married), almost 26, 23 and almost 22.

How did your family react? Mine gave us 6 months at the max.

 It really isn't that rare. I have met a lot of people over the years, myself included, who married within the 1st 1-3 months of meeting someone and their marriages have lasted.

The very thought of not seeing him daily sucked. I just knew that he was the person I was meant to be with. Waiting didn't make sense, ya know?

And people said I was crazy, lol. I met my husband online; we met in person AND moved in together, three months later. A month and a half after that, I proposed. We got married just under seven months later, and conceived our Kiddo two weeks after our first marriage anniversary. We've been married for eight years, and together nine years next month.

My Dad was cool with it, my mom....not so much. No one thought we would last. My mom has recently said that we made her eat her words and she couldn't be happier about that. They love him.

His family....well, they don't care much for my husband to begin with. He was an oops baby (he was born 14 years after his sister) and his mom didn't really want him, but his Dad did. He is the only one out of his siblings (he's the youngest of 4) that looks like his Dad...spitting image. When his Dad died, he basically became an outcast.

Right, but you had no way of knowing before you married him what kind of father he would be.


Quoting Anonymous:

We've been married 5 years, he's adopted my kids and we have a 4 year old together.

Good luck with that.



Glad to know his proven ability to be a father to your child "was a major factor here.
