Marriage after long dating

Published: 21.01.2018

I was in shock, and still am. She doesn't want to hear anything to the contrary.

Or any of us? Make sure you're familiar with our no-drama comment policy. Thanks for the great blog, as always.

I did open an acct in one of the dating sites. I'm with Ariel on family planning and marriage being separate. I don't really think how long you date before marriage has that much to do with if you stay together or not. I actually just got out of a ten year relationship.

How Long to Wait Before Getting Married

This is hard stuff to quantify and articulate. Their story pretty much terrified me and I still think about them from time to time. Many times, the signs of dysfunction are there but go ignored. I also looked for other ways to divert my attention. I knew I wanted to be with him forever within three months, but neither of us were ready for marriage until 7 years in.

Hopefully they will commit to the other whom shares their values - but if not - then that commitment will probably see them through.

The "Morning After"

They are both very attractive and good people. He was always there for me. I am caught up in this dilemma thank God I came across this page. She's had "getting married" in her head for five or eight years in the case of my friends, often since she was 18 or 19 and then suddenly, having followed through, realizes that nothing is "fixed," nothing is "different," and suddenly she has nothing to plan to.

Is it about supporting each other in your separate endeavors without insecurity? I think you're right Ariel, many people have expectations that things will change after the wedding.

      We live in a small town, an now he shows up at all the social events we used to attend together with her. But then the question I would have would be, are you wanting to get married sooner for the chance of a life long marriage or for children?

      He said I don't know and then he said Marriage is overrated. Sorry — in a nutshell, communication is key!!

      Hopefully they will commit to the other whom shares their values - but if not - then that commitment will probably see them through. What is your position on couples who want to abstain from sex due to religious restrictions.
