Getting engaged after 2 months of dating
I’ve been getting into it recently with some readers who have a slightly different take on when people should get engaged. One reader on my Facebook page wrote: “When a man’s in love he wants to propose as soon as he can.” Needless to say, I disagree with that. If you expect your marriage to be otherwise, you’ve got a big surprise waiting for you.
There are MANY men who propose as soon as they can when they’re in love. In it, Professor Ted Huston studies 168 couples for ten years. “Researchers saw some typical changes that take place in all marriages during the first couple of years: fewer overt displays of affection; less sex; and fewer leisure activities together, as the relationship evolves from a romantic, recreational relationship to something like a working partnership.” This is all normal and predictable, says the married dating coach.
We also have a very healthy sex life, are both financially independent homeowners and have very good careers.
We like each other’s circle of friends and regularly hang out with them, but also make them to see them separately.
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.
But is marrying someone after such a brief time really such a terrible idea? And how their newlywed phase is comfy and cozy and romantic, but not particularly sexy?
We are both 31 and I know for a fact I want to marry this amazing person.
We speak about the future often (what pets we’d have, etc) and we both believe we will be together years down the line but have never spoken about marriage.
After that, our relationship was based on texts, email and lots of video chats.
We had decided that we were going to try to make it work despite the huge distance between us.
