What happens when you get married right after meeting? Well, in a recent Reddit AskWomen thread, ladies who have actually been brave enough to do it share what happened. Aw I hope this isn’t true…My boyfriend and I have been together a little over 2.5 years but haven’t had the chance to live together because we’re long distance due to his job and my grad school . We don’t plan on getting married until 2-3 years down the line but I feel like we won’t fall apart when we do. It’s just that our lives have been so transient and uncertain that adding the pressure of a new marriage/moving in together isn’t a good idea. I think all of these are important , but #8 and #9 are also important.

I didn’t know rather to be mad at him or myself for allowing it to happen.

I never planned on having unprotected sex, especially with someone I hardly know, but things happen. As intimacy develops between the two people, more self-disclosure emerges, both verbally and nonverbally as couples act in ways that are more like how they are in their daily life.

Here Kara loses her job or Sam’s grandmother dies and he is devastated, or Chris has a medical crisis. Though we felt romantic, I sensed he was holding back on any relationship progression, often claiming he was too busy with work or tired to stay over. Two months later, he told me he wasn’t ready for a relationship, which I interpreted as a cue to end. In my head, something either moves forward or backward, so I pulled out.

As well as the stark statistic that couples don’t reconnect 70% of the time, not every story where they do get back together is a happy one. When asked about advice for anyone going through a breakup, she said to just walk away, not matter how hard it is because “you both need time away from each other.” “I was forced to move to a different state where my parents had moved to in order to get back on my feet,” she said.

But he missed me and always thought about me, he said. Once he had the space to think about it, he was ready for commitment. If the interactions between the two of you already feel exhausting and unpleasant a lot of the time, it could ultimately be a bad sign of what’s to come.

Here are 20 ways the relationship changes by month three—and five ways that it shouldn’t. If you’re the type of person who feels pressure to “perform” grand romantic gestures in order to impress your partner, it might be worth scaling those back for the six-month mark just a tad. It’s important to check-in with yourself to make sure you’re comfortable with the pace in the early stages.

I’ve seen marriages like that last for many years but no one involved is actually happy.

These conflicts will help you learn how you and your partner solve issues individually and together, which is extremely important.

People are taking their time before getting married, and there are a lot of resources out there today that will make it easier than in your parents’ time.
