My ex and I weren't together but 3mos when we got engaged and we married 6mos after that. I've been divorced now almost as long as we were wed.

My current relationship, however, is progressing at a slower pace and I think that's a really good thing for both of us since we've both been divorced and we're both single parents.

 How long was it between your first date and when he proposed to you? Was your engagement a long one, or really short? How long have you been married?

We were together for about a year and a half - 2 years before we got "engaged". He never really proposed to me though... we had always talked about getting married and it was just kinda decided one day that yeah, we were going to get married. We aren't married yet and have been together for 5 years. Mostly because of no time or money to plan a wedding right now. I told him I still want a real proposal before we get married though.

Met in March 2004, moved in together May 2004. Had our first in August 2006, second in November 2007. Married in March 2010. :) He asked me to marry him in April 2006 but I never really wanted to get married which I was honest about. He eventually changed my mind obviously. ;) We moved really fast. But March 2014 will be 10 years together.

We dated for a year before he proposed. We aren't married yet, and have been together for 5 1/2 years now. I like that this relationship is going a bit slower than when I made the mistake to marry the father of my child. We didn't even make it 3 years.

We met and got married 7 1/2 months later (he proposed 6 weeks after we met).

We celebrate 10 years of marriage in March.


Edit to add kid info.

We had our daughter a little over 2 years after we got married and our son was born just after our 7th wedding anniversary. I'm glad we had a few years kid free since we got married so quickly after we met.

I met my husband in January of 2012, started dating in Febuary, found out I was pregnant in May and got married in July!

We've been happily married 15 months, just built our home and have a wonderful son.
