Ours was the shortest courtship that I had ever heard of.Well, except for celebrities, but we all know how those turn out most of the time.We have spent every day together since the third week of dating (except when I travel for work) and love being around each other constantly.
I want to ask her to marry me but is six months too short a period to bring this up?
I see real potential with her and don’t want to mess it up by bringing up marriage too early.
The pros and cons of marrying someone you hardly know. Bush popped the question to Laura Welch three weeks after he met her, and married her just a few weeks after that.
Word on the street is that Khloe Kardashian will be tying the knot with her LA Lakers boyfriend Lamar Odom this upcoming weekend. Today, they've been married over thirty years, raised two children, and survived some of the toughest circumstances a political couple can face (a lost local election, a contested national election, an unpopular presidency, two wars, etc.).
If a couple is still finding lots of reasons not to marry after four or more years, then that’s usually because they’re subconsciously picking up on problems or even thinking that they themselves aren’t suitable for marriage, ever.” Makes perfect sense to me.
Which is why I’m going to double down on my theory that you shouldn’t get engaged before at least two years (like most couples already do) and you shouldn’t marry when you’re caught up in those giddy feelings.(The average length of courtships in the study was two years, four months)…Speed can become a problem when it is driven by romance and fantasy because, unless one is extraordinarily lucky, the suitors discover that the partner was not as lovely as they had imagined.Long courtships, Huston argues, are rarely long because the partners are exercising due caution.I know there are plenty of “is it too soon” posts on the internet but they are always a bit generic and don’t give context so would love to get your opinion:) (first time poster too!) My girlfriend and I have been together for 6 months.After that, our relationship was based on texts, email and lots of video chats.
