      according to some, they said that the minimum time in getting to know the person before jumping to marriage is six month. But I guess it really depends because getting to know the person you love is a lifetime process..

      I think 35-40 yrs is an absolute minimum. anything sooner is jumping the gun.

    Technically, if you actually met that person AT a wedding chappel in Vegas, and were willing to call the intial eye contact a first date, then you could probably get it done in twelve to fifteen minutes.  For the sake of this conversation, let's assume you got through the paperwork quick, and go with 12. So, 12 minutes is the minimum time to date and marry a person.

    Sometimes it just takes a few days...sometimes it takes a lifetime--there's no one answer to this, it just depends on the people...

    My husband and I got married two months after we met, and today we celebrate the 22nd anniversary of the day we met...but obviously, that's not for everyone, lol... big_smile

      Congrats, TamCor - not many people can make it like that.

      Like you, my wife and I met Thanksgiving and, after a 3 week pause in our relationship around Christmas while one traveled, married Feb. 4, 34 years ago.

      Sometimes it works.

        Thanks!  It's nice to meet someone else who understands how that can really happen, because it's just not possible to explain, is it?  big_smile

          No it's not.  It takes two people willing to work at it that also care very much for each other, and few people get the first part of the equation.

    I met my husband ten years before we were married.  (Celebrating 48 married years in a few days.)
    We still don't understand each other fully.
    If we did, we probably would have been bored and called it quits.

    I met an elderly couple that had been married more than 60 years.  They had 'dated' for three days before they got married.  She was 16, and her parents wouldn't let her go out yet.  He didn't fancy sitting at her parents home every evening for the next year or so, until they would let her go out, so they eloped.

    And they still held hands all the time.

      Isn't it neat to find someone like that, that is still in love after that many years?
