    How long do you think it takes to get to know someone well enough to tie the knot?

    Some get married so quickly...after only six months. I can't think that would be even almost enough time to know what you are getting into. What are your thoughts?

    I do not think there is a time frame for the affection you have for one. For example my sister is 23 and her husband is 21, they new each other for 3 months and decided they wanted to be together forever. They have been married longer than they've known each other. I was married to my husband for 10 years and I still did not know him truly and I continue to find new things about him that I didnt know then. Times change people change In my opinion it can take a life time to figure one out.

    How long is a piece of string?

    You could spend a lifetime with someone and never truly know them.
    I 'dated' my husband on and off for 6 years before we got married and you would have thought i knew everything about him by then.
    I'm still discovering new things about him as i write and i'm sure he is learning new things about me too.

    As bellawritter23 wrote, 'Times change and people change too.'
    When chosing your lifepartner, facts about them are important but so also are what your heart and intuition say about them too.

    It could take several years or even a lifetime to learn another person and even after all that time still not know them.

    so I guess it is determined by your priorities, ask yourself why you are with the person in the first place. Is it for intimacy, companionship, to start a family or for an economical arrangement.

    If it is for Love then a new set of criteria must be considered and a relationship counselor may be needed to help two people sort out their true motives for getting together.
