OOoohhh, a two-part question! I dated my hubby & best friend for 7 years before we married. We lived together for 5 years. He was my highschool sweetie! Marriage is over rated though. The only thing it changes is the "cost of breaking up" & tax break. It's mostly a religious ceremony. The time necessary depends on the relationship and the people involved. I'd advise you see a relationship counselor that some churches will actually require. MY MARRIAGE ADVICE: FRIENDS 1ST

We were dating 2 years + before tying the knot. Dunno if that's considered long though I've known some who dated more than 9 years. I think a good time would be 1 yr of dating. I've seen friends who tied the knot after 6-9 years of dating but still ended in divorce.

we were dating for almost 6 months before we decided to settle down. i think for me its enough to know him better and his background. now we are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary and hoping to last a lifetime.
