I did this exact insane thing...I married a wonderful con artist after less than a month...I was terribly decieved and he broke my freaking heart, stole everything and after 2 years of marriage it ended very badly. I will remember not to be spontaneous next time. And unless she suffers some terminal illness I'd suggest waiting till you REALLY know the other person. No matter how right it feels, time reveals things we may not see. Like psychopaths and sociopaths can pretend to be someone they aren't..wolfs in sheep's clothing...I discovered the man of my dreams was more like a nightmare...and had no morals no money and 8 kids all by different women...his background check didn't reveal his 40,000$ in tax debt or his child support orders that were desperately overdue..problems with keeping his junk in his pants obviously

Yeah I know. I learned that from my parent's experience. My mum barely knew my dad before she got married. The only time I have seen it work was when they were set up by people who knew both parties and they had a lot of friends in common and even then they got engaged after about three months.

Yes it is. My best friends parents in law met and we're married in 14 days. Yes 14 day's! They had two daughters and we're happily married until he died of cancer. :(

We spent 5 years with each other before his alcoholism because too much. We remained very good friends though and spent a lot of time as a family unit with our son (now 17 yrs). He passed away last year. We were devastated.

Nope. Wayyy too soon for me.

Maybe. Doesn't mean I have to get married the same day.

Best Answer

I would be very concerned as narcissists tend to try to get you to commit quickly. They don't like to have to be nice for long so they try and seal the deal fast and get back to being themselves.

Best Answer

that's true ! my dad is a narcissist and my parents married after three months

Best Answer

They also had me young too... and the divorce was messy.

Best Answer

I wouldn't even consider being engaged after that short a time, even if we were looking at being engaged for a while.

Best Answer

Yeah that's gonna end well xD
