Thread Starter 
How long have you been married? And how long did you know each other before you got married? Ted & I knew each other 3 months & 2 days when we got married & have been married 29 1/2 years.30 year's in July 2003 And if you are not married,how long have you been with your better half? And yes all my family said it would not last a year!!And half of those who said this have been divorced!At least once.

It will be 16 years end of this month. We met through a personal ad, both of us living in different states. We wrote for four years and I met him twice during that time when I took off for vacation with him. He wanted to see how I would handle Alaska (where he lived at the time)

I met my partner 7 years ago when I was looking for a place to live (after moving out of my University dorm). As soon as I met him I knew he was the one and moved into his apartment 7 days later!!

We are not married and have no plans to get married. For us, the relationship is perfect the way it is.

When it's right, it's right. You know what I mean?

I'm not married, but I do hope that someday I will be. My boyfriend (Bill) and I have been together for 3 years. We met through a chat room on the Internet and decided to meet each other after 1 month. Since then, we usually try to see each other every 2 months...either I go there (Chicago) or he comes here & we talk at least 3 times per week. He has taken me to places I thought I never would have seen...Chicago, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio...and soon I'll be going to San Diego this summer and to the Keys of Florida in the fall! We also plan on moving in together sometime this summer (hopefully!), but it depends on where he finds a different job. Right now it's looking like an opportunity in Kentucky or Detroit....it should be pretty interesting to say the least!

My husband who is also my best friend got engaged after five days of knowing each other. We've been married this July five years. We met when I changed jobs and he worked in my building. I wasn't looking for anyone since I had just gotten out of a six year relationship that was hell.

We've been married 61/2 years. Together approx. 9
I met him when I was 12.(he was 11) He was my grandparents paper boy.(I'd see him when I visited on weekends) Needless to say I always insisted on getting the paper when he came!
For years...we dated on and off. Mostly weekend dating because we lived far from each other.
I moved here and the rest is history.

Darrell and I were best friends while I dated his best friend "John Doe". After five months of being Darrell's friend and confidante, I dumped John and started dating Darrell, much to the dismay of John. Everybody said it wouldn't work because I was 16 and Darrell was 19. After 5 years of dating we got married and will celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary this July.

Condratulations Crazy Cat!

What an interesting thread - great idea Sherral! Congratulations to Crazy Cat - our newlywed!!

Earl and I met in October 1995 at a Goth club. He called once during the week that we initially met, and we met up again the next weekend. I invited him back to my place after going to the club, and somehow he never left. He moved in with me, although I never really said he could. We got married November 2000, so we've been together for over 7 years, married just over 2 years.

Congrats CrazyCat!

Not married, been together 2 years, known each other for 3.
We both feel pretty strongly that we should only get married if we decide to have children, and we're not sure about that yet! I think that we will someday, but who knows. For now we're both happy!

Thanks to all for the congrats...

I've known and pretty much been with Kirt (online for part of the time since we lived so far away) since July of 1999. So we've been together for going close to 4 years now. We became engaged a little less then a year ago, and are still together.
We don't have a set date for our wedding yet, but were hoping soonish! We'd like a spring wedding, but I doubt that will happen.

Here's to long lasting marriages!

Congrats Crazy Cat!

Gary and I met in 1979 when I was 16 and he was 17. We dated until I left for college in 1981 and he left the country to live in Israel. (He had already left home at 15, and commuted to Chicago from Willard, OH where he lived and worked by the time we started dating).

I married the wrong man in 1986 after having met in India in 1983. We divorced in 1994 after having separated several times, the last time in 1993.

Gary moved back to the States in late 1989. He remembered where my parents lived, so got their (listed) phone number to track me down. We started talking again in October, 1993, just shortly after I left first hubby (for the second time). Gary and I got engaged (although we celebrate it as if it were our wedding anniversary) in December, 1993 when I flew from NY to Seattle to see him. He packed up and moved to NY in January 1994 and we started living together. My divorce was final in March, 1994, and Gary and I hit the road in the RV in June, 1994. We got legally married in July, 1994 up in Dawson Creek, BC.

He's my best friend and business partner.
