Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

It is not the time knowing the person. It is knowing about the person you both are and being that person from day one up until the time you both get married and beyond.

We were dating for just under 3 months when I proposed to my girlfriend. We got married less than a year later. We'll celebrate our 22nd anniversary in two months. It's not about the quantity of time but the quality.

Similar story here. Started dating in June. Proposed in September. Moved her in in October. Married in June. 20 years on the 21st.

Met my wife on a blind date on March 28, 1972. Married her on July 1, 1972. 25 days away from our 45th anniversary. Love her more now than I did then.

Do you ever truly know someone?

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

No you truly never do know someone. Other than a tax break and sharing insurance, I never see the point in marriage. I was married for 12 years. Never once did I benefit in other than those two ways.

Why the "less than" rather than "at Least"?

If you are asking this question as an indicator of the possible "longevity" of the contract, I believe it is irrevelant.....Longevity would be much more dependant upon how you treat each other after the ceremony.

Somebody needs to rain on this parade.
I was married twice.
My 1st used me as a home plate for her affairs.
My 2nd used me like an ATM machine.
Both have moved on to more failed marriages.
1st - 3.
2nd - 2.
Me? Ha! no more. I have a steady girlfriend.
Been together for 9 years. We don't want to get married.

Ah, the hell with it.
