If anything happens to my hubby, I have no intentions of getting remarried. But if I had a SO I don't think I would be in a hurry.

Since we are talking second marriages for both I think the talking should happen with in a year but the kids take priority and thier ages , the length if time divoreced, the relationship between parents, etc need to be carefully thought through. I wouldn't waste time on someone who wanted to just be a perm innate boyfriend.... But I would not want to jump in trying to make myself happy only to bring more chaos to my kids lives.

 Depends on other stuff, too.

I'm not sure I'd ever want to be married again. My current husband had to talk me into this marriage! But if I did, I would not wait longer than 2-21/2 years.

 I think after a year of dating I would bring up the subject...life is to short to "wait" for something you want when the other does not...

It depends on the relationship. I have not been in a situation, so I am not sure if i would be in hurry, but if done with kids, from both sides, I might be even comfortable wothout a ring. For me it is more important that the relationship goes well, then a ring.
