Most people would think you really need to know someone before getting married to them. If you're dating someone for a long time before you decide to get married, you're more likely to be sure you're compatible, right? And anyone who makes rash decisions to seal the deal with someone they've known for a matter of months is asking for trouble? Well, these women all had their weddings within a few months of meeting their partner. And not all of these marriages ended in divorce...
1."We met and married after knowing each other for two months. I was very young (19) and stubborn. Once I made up my mind about something that was it. He was the first person I connected both physically and mentally with. More the mentally part. We would talk for hours and got each other's obscure references. We ran off and eloped and told friends and family afterwards.
"Nobody was pleased to say the least. I was very much a spur of the moment person. There wasn't a doubt in my young squishy mind that he was 'the one' and waiting never crossed my mind. Did I mention I was young and pig headed? Was it easy? Nope. Do we fight? Of course. All couples do, but I feel that the way you handle conflict determines a lot of your compatibility. Do I think this is a good idea for everyone? Nope. All relationships are different." [via]
2."We talked on the phone for two months before we actually met, we were engaged within two months of meeting and married within five months. NEVER have I made a better decision in my whole life. He will always be the one." [via]
"We are more in love now than ever before"
3."We met in October and were married by January. We had a rough patch at 10 years but we're almost at 14 years and we are more in love now than ever before. My parents married after three months as well, and they have been married 40 years. It’s hard work but we live for each other every single day. It makes the time fly." [via
4."We met online. He was living in England, I was in DC. We were gaming buddies that one day realised we liked each other. We thought it wouldn't work, but we risked it. I was going to move to the UK but we decided he should move to DC. We had never met in person. He sold everything he owned and against everyone's recommendations moved to the US to live with a woman he'd never met. A month later, we woke up one morning and decided to get married. We've been married for seven years now and it's the best decision I've ever made. We're still in love. He's my best friend." [via]
5."I waited a year. I was super religious at the time and thought I'd spend forever in hell for sex outside of marriage. He didn't flip until six months after marriage, and he was a narcissist. He hid who he was for a full year and a half." [via]
6."We were married in less than six months. It went terribly. He is a narcissist, and after the wedding his personality completely changed. I firmly believe I should have waited another year to marry him." [via]
