After one month of dating
I proposed to her later that year after we had dated about 6 months and we were married 11 months after the proposal.7 years later we're still going strong.We are the couple that everyone comes to for marital advice because our relationship has been through the fire in so many ways and we always come out the other side stronger. I greatly appreciate everyone's comments and well wishes, and I sincerely hope that you all can find the same in your current or future relationships.
My wife has always told me that I should write a book about the story of our lives to give relationship advice and I think this post may have convinced me to start on that. I believe that loyalty is the winner in a strong relationship; you both put aside your own wants to ensure the other person is cared for. Still happily married after over twenty years together with some kids. Meeting someone, getting engaged and married in under a month, and then the relationship lasting more than 5 years?
There’s nothing worse than being in a new relationship only to realize that he/she is still swiping right on Tinder.
Or, not being fully ready for an exclusive relationship only to have someone fantastic decide you’re not worth the wait.
I’ve been here too many times to mention but I’ve never quite known if there was an unwritten rule for how many dates before relationship talk should make it into conversation.
I’m sure you’re the same so I’ve done a little digging to see what the general feeling is on it.
