How long til ya got hitched?

  1. For those of you married folks, how long were you together before you got married? Do you think it made a difference in how successful (or unsuccessful) your marriage was?

    OK..we met summer/fall of '76, began dating spring '77, were married April '81

    Being friends first *definitely* made a difference!

    BTW: we met over CB radio while Cruisin' Woodward!!

    And if all goes well, maybe in 15-20 years it might be time to make it legal? Right?

    My husband and I dated 3 months before we got married and have been together for 15+ years.

    We were together about 4 and 1/2 years.


    Does it make a difference? I dunno. I'm sure there are people that are together for decades and then get married only to get divorced. And then there are probably people that get married a week after they meet and stay together forever. I think it has more to do with the people and their committment than any amount of time.
