Jump straight into it...

Anyone else jump straight into being married?

On my first or second date with DH I made him promise to never leave me. He proposed like a week later. A year later we got legally married (has to wait for me to be 18 but we said our vows and exchanged rings 6 months before that). This was 12 years ago. So hard to believe it has been so long.

Nope DH and I waited until we were mature enough to get married and not in our teens. We also made sure we weren't going to struggle due to the fact that we were young and dumb

Yikes! 

That seems...needy.

I mean, I guess it's worked out. You've been together 12 years. But I would have run hard and fast had my husband tried to make me promise to never leave him on our first or second date, lol.

Nope..of course, we were 16 when we started dating so our parents would have FLIPPED. LOL We got married when we were 20...that was almost 22 years ago.

We knew right away we were going to get married. We were 25 and 28 though. We went on our first date in march and were married in december. So many people flipped the hell out, thinking we were making a huge mistake and wouldn't make it a year. Proud to say we are going on 10 years now!

1 mom liked this
We got married in 99 and had DS in 08, lol. We're still married too.

At least TRY, you know. Make this fun, not annoying.

We pretty much knew right away that we were meant to be. We got engaged eight months after we met and we got married 6 months later. We've been married for almost twenty two years. I think you can usually tell pretty early on if it's right or not.
