I think you should wait at least 2 or 3 years, maybe even more before getting married. i don't really know, i may be wrong, that's just what i think.

AnswerThere's no limit, really. Some people wait a long time so that they can be certain that they are REALLY ready to make the commitment. AnswerI'd say the other way around---get to know each other before you decide to marry. Let *that* take 2 or 3 years. Then when you get engaged, marry within 6 months. It is easier to get out of a steady dating relationship than an engagement, and easier to get out of an engagement than a marriage.


Where I come from it's said that the wedding should take place within a year after the engagement!

Never the less it's not something that people live by. Speaking from experience, it takes a LOT of time to plan a wedding and most couples here take 2-3 years from the proposal to the wedding day.

My uncle and aunt got married a few years ago - more than 30 years after they got engaged - so anything is possible!
