How many people did you seriously date before getting married?

Before getting married, how many people did you date? Did you marry the first person you ever seriously dated? Was it just a couple? A dozen? More than that?

Can you remember every person you’ve ever dated? Try. We’re curious to hear what that answer is. If you feel so inclined, please tell us in the comments below.

Seriously I would have married the boy next door if he didn’t move to Baltimore with his parents and then joined the peace corp. Yeah I do that to people. Otherwise I just dated until the right guy came along. Been married now 25 years and we dated for a few years before that. So 31 years we knew each other and 25 last June.

Seriously dated my ex x 6 months before marrying the1st time. Met my dearly beloved a year into that “practice marriage”. Went back and forth a few times. Divorced at 9 years 11 months, which was 9 years and 8 months after the first time my ex asked me for1 (I kept custody of my exMIL!) DH and I married x40 years. I’m happy he gave me a second chance.

I really wish RV Travel would stick to travel related topics, especially those that focus on RV lifestyle, equipment or etc. I am beginning to cringe when I see these polls like today. I read this site for RV related issues, not to play Facebook type games.

Not sure I “seriously” dated my wife of nearly 32 years before we were married.

I think the operative word here was “seriously”. I went out with a couple girls but never seriously. It was more like we were friends and both enjoyed doing stuff together. When someone introduced me to my wife,I knew she was tho one on our first date. We’ve been married 49 years.

The first time or the second? Once I got my practice marriage out of the way, I found the RIGHT person and married her. 33 years later we’re still going strong.

I married the first person I seriously dated, after that I seriously dated several people before marrying again. (I live in Utah)

If “serious” = “> 1 date,” then one person. If “serious” = “dated for > 1 year,” then zero people.

I dated one person all thru high school. Just before graduation I had the feeling there should be more and broke up. A month later I met someone that totally gave me that more. Married 6 months later. 43 years next month.

When I was 24 yrs. old, I met a young lady at work. I hadn’t ever dated, but asked her to go to Dennys restaurant with me for dinner. 9 months later we got married. We just celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary!

It took me five times to get it right. He passed and I have no desire to try again.

Probably 4 or 5. The question is, how many of them were seriously dating me!!

Just one seriously. There were others during high school, but only one after I graduated. After tech school, I moved to another city and drove home every weekend. That lasted less than 6 months. We ended up getting married when I was 20 and my wife was 19.
Now it’s 52 years years later
