Dating & Relationships.

I know most of you are engaged or married, so I wanted to know what do you think is a reasonable time that your significant other should propose? Did you or do you have a time limit where you could wait? Me and my significant other meet December 2011, started dating March 2012, and fell head over heels in love, now we have a nine month old daughter two and a half years later, so I'm not really expecting a ring anytime soon, I want him to take his time, but not 10 years from now lol!

    Everyone is different and there is no right or wrong amount of time. I think the important thing is open communication and making sure you are both happy and on the same page. Some couples are madly in love and have a family but never get married. It is really up to the two of you.

        Awww thank you, you gave such great advice, but we have talked marriage, I just don't want him to feel pressured, but he does love talking about it . He mentioned he's giving me a promise ring to begin with, then a engagement ring, followed up with a wedding ring of course, he's very traditional with some things, and I'm not complaining! I will keep you updated, I hope the best for you also!

            My situation is unique...Met my BF during a Summer Lit class (May 2012) while I was going through a divorce (married almost 11 years). My divorce was final that September. We moved in together that October, and found out we were prego (01/2013)...WOW...talk about fast. This will be a second marriage for both of us and we are in no rush. We think the soonest may be Summer 2015. Our families are up in arms as they are very religious, but we are not and we are big kids myself 30 and him 37 so we will take things at our own pace. Just learning to be good parents and partners to each other right now.

              I am really in the minority, I guess. I wouldn't have a baby without being married. I used like triple birth control to make sure I wasn't pregnant before marriage :-) But I know that's not necessarily the case for everybody. Plus, a bad marriage is way worse than no marriage so taking the time is important. For me, I guess I wouldn't have a baby with my hubby if I weren't also willing to marry him, so I wanted marriage first.

                It was a joke, Ashley! I meant that I would not allow myself to get pregnant before marriage.

                  I've been with my fiance since July 2004 & we are getting married this year. we been engaged for 6 years, just haven't been in a rush to set the date until our daughter came now we thought it'd be a good idea to get married on our 10 year anniversary.

                  I'm not sure what I like until I see how it looks on me, but I know sheath or ball gown might fit me best. I will post pics when I have one like.

                    I think I would get antsy if there was no proposal or talk of marriage within a year... but that is just me!

                      Stefany... I do not think it is bad to think that way...because I think the same way too! LOL! ... but everyone has different thoughts/feelings! i am Catholic and it is part of our belief system to wait until marriage...and since I am very rooted in my faith that is probably on reason I followed the rules of my faith and waited until marriage!

                        It's mostly up to you and your significant other, but I tend to think that you should be together for at least 2-3 years before marrying each other. Get engaged, sure, but don't actually get married until you really know the other person...but that's just my opinion. I'm sure there are couples who haven't been together long at all that work just fine. We started dating in 2008 after knowing each other for a year and a half and didn't get married until 2012.
