Redditors who married their SO after a short time of dating, how did you know that he/she is The One? How's everything going so far?

After a bad divorce I waited 2 years to even start dating. That time was spent on self improvement and deciding what i really wanted out of life. See, my first wife and I met as teenagers and finished growing up together. I didn't have a good sense of eho i was without her so that came first.

I had a couple casual situations and mostly those women wanted more than I did. It was different with my wife When we met my wife she was so much better than what I was used. Kind, sweet, beautiful, emotionally available, and we just matched. We were married less than 6 months after our first date.

That was 5 years ago. We now have a blended family, a baby together and we couldn't be happier.

Having said all isn't for everyone and disaster is more frequent than success.
