Love can be a wonderful thing. If your lucky to find that one true love I would say a year is great. I know for me it would be more than a year to get me to say yes.

It depends on every culture I think. There are some people who think its okay to get married when you are a teenager and some thinks the right time is when you are in your mid 20's and some think that getting married on your mid 20's is also too early. It varies from culture to culture.

I think it depends on age as well. when you are younger, like under 25, a longer relationship is good. It also depends on factors outside the relationshsip. for example: I got married this year, I'm 29, so i'm not very young but my husband and i now live in his country not mine. We have been dating for just over 4 months when we got engaged, married 10 months later. I know that sounds fast but my placement in his country was ending so we had do decide if this was our forever person urgently. I was also old enough to know i didn't want a long relationship, i was looking for a husband.

well for me there's no "too early on asking someone to marry you as long as you are sure of that person that you are willing to spend your forever with her/him. but for me, i will say yes or even ask my man to marry me if i felt that im already ready for a lifetime commitment..=)

ahah i guess that 1 year is ok^^ bcs in one year you can know much about that person^^ people always say that love isnt about time but if you marry after a year you already can feel more secure that things will work out. if you marry before one marry is like you will feel a bit insecure maybe. we need love but also security. we need to be sure that is that what we want. imagine that you are like 18 years and say yes you have to be sure that is that guy you want to be with. is not just say yes. thats why i guess that after a year we know things better. before is better not to ask bcs things should be slow and also enjoy the dating time ahah would be more romantic right? ahah

Well I guess it really all depends, on the relationship and the people involved. As for me, I met my husband in high school, we talked about marriage and being together, but we both knew we were young. After being with him for 5 years we finally got engaged. I was 21 and my husband was 20, we both knew we were young, but we had already been through so many together and we both were deeply in love with each other and we knew we were ready to go to the next level. I think that before you take that leap in your life you need to be prepared and in love. The time frame in relationship varies, I personally think that you should be in a steady committment for at least one year. Marriage is sacred and once you commit to, you shouldn't walk away from it, at least that is my personal opinion.

I think it really depends on the person, I know there's some people that fall in love in a very short time and then there's others that take a very long time to fall in love with someone. For me I don't believe one person can really really know their significant other in a year therefore would not get married in a year.
