Dating time engagement how long irish dating traditions
At the time, I was 23 years old, made little money, and had no real savings to speak of so after the breakup, I had to figure out my living situation.
We lived together for another 2 months while I was saving and trying to find a place that I could afford.
Demetrius says: I’ve never been engaged, but I have been in a similar situation.
And how long were you engaged before you got married? There is no "time frame", its when you both feel ready, or you feel that your both ready.
Even well into your thirties—when people are more self-aware than they were in their twenties and know what they want—and into your forties—when having kids starts to feel a bit more urgent—you can still afford to wait six months.
I asked my boyfriend to give me the guy's perspective on this, and he said he thinks six months should be the standard minimum too.
Eventually I found a place I could afford and moved out on my own.
The place was a dump, but I finally got my own place.
