Engaged after 6 months of dating
4, 2016, Broderick gave ET his advice on being a good husband, saying, "Listen to her. Please register to participate in our discussions with 1.5 million other members - it's free and quick!I knew my wife for 1 week (yes, I said 1) and ask her to marry me. We were both older and had been in several long term relationships over the years. We knew what we wanted, what we didn't want, and neither of us had any interest in getting into the long term rut of simply living together, again, without making a real commitment.We did live-together for a year and she had an engagement ring on that whole year. Neither of us has ever had a moment of regret or wished we had taken more time. I wouldn't recommend it for people in their 20's but we are living proof that it can work.From experience I know the first 6 months is the "honey moon" phase, and then after that both partners let their guard down more and really get to know the other person.My best friend met this guy while she was still seeing her ex.They met over the phone, talked everyday, and then after a week she tells me they were talking about getting married!Been married now for 8 years and loving it more each year!! That probably works better than to just date on and on and then decide time is running out or that after so much time of dating they should just marry.
Actually we got married exactly 1 year to the day that I asked her to marry me. I think what matters more is that the couple are marriage minded and will make the commitment and any compromises that need to be made to make it work.We were older, 51-52, had been married before, but we both knew that we wanted each other.......the "Wedding Bells"! Many people have marriage as the goal and so immediately -- in the first date are making decisions on if that person would make a good marriage candidate.In 2017, this happy couple will celebrate 20 years of marriage.At the premiere of SJP's HBO series, Divorce, on Oct. Just be kind to her." The pair shares three children together: 14-year-old son James and 7-year-old twin daughters Marion and Tabitha.
