Oh yeah - this stuff is totally individualized. I mean, Wife and I married after two years, but we a) knew each other in college and had a friendship before dating, so it's not like we started from scratch, b) had both been in serious long-term relationship and knew what we wanted, and c) were in our 30s and ready to move to that "forever" stage. I mean, if my wife were hit by a meteor or eaten by a horde of cannibals in a mistaken shopping adventure, two years would seem unfathomably quick. It's all relative.mightysparks wrote: ↑May 14th, 2019, 11:09 pmIt’s weird coz 2 years seems like nothing but I guess it’s really what you do with the time rather than the actual amount of time (like age I guess lol). Getting married after 2 years would’ve seemed weird to me a few years ago, but seems reasonable to me now.maxwelldeux wrote: ↑May 14th, 2019, 12:17 amFair enough - I'm usually in the "let's celebrate this in some way" camp, even if we're just splitting a bottle of champagne or something. Of course, I won't tell you what I did for the second anniversary of my wife's and my first date...SpoilerShowI married her - exactly two years to the day later.
We’ve been living together for most of those 2 years so things have been more intense/sped up I suppose. But it feels like we’ve been together forever but also that we still have a long way to go. A lot stems from my PTSD and autism/schizoid/whatever; it took me about 6 months just to learn how to hug.
But yeah - it's amazing how time flies. I mean, I'm pretty decent at math, but people still need several chalkboards and a team of lawyers to convince me that the 1990s weren't 10 years ago.
