    we also moved in together after dating for 3 days (had known each other 5 months)
    When you meet The One, I think you just know, and we didnt want to waste a minute

    We were together 6 months before we started TTC. We'd known each other for 1.5 years.
    I think having that year of friendship before hand helped us - we could talk about what we wanted for the future without any pressue, as we were "just friends" at that stage

    We'd been together for 9 years and married for 1 of those when we started TTC. We celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary a week before our DD was born. We had been married nearly 5 years when DS was born.

    I think having a child can put a lot of stress on any relationship and I learnt a lot of new things about DH (some good, some bad) after having a child - and I'd known him for over 10 years!!!

    I couldn't agree with this more. Children definitely highlight some good and bad qualities about a person that no conversation could ever unveil. My DH has shown me that while he is a hands on dad (playing with DS in the backyard) and very much loves his boy - he wasn't the most supportive husband through the child rearing early years (ie didn't occur to him that family guy isn't appropriate for 3yrolds or perhaps 9pm isn't a great bed time)... Sure did add a lot of tensions and fights!

    My DF and I were in primary school together so technically we met in 1998 and had our son in 2011 so 13 years. We started dating in 2004 when I was 16 and he was 17, we moved in together after 18 months in 2006 and got engaged at the start of last year. So we're officially together 6 years when we conceived our little "whoopsie" wouldn't change him for he world but a few more years to of set ourselves up better would have been nice...

We were then ready for kids, we now have 2 boys and a comfortable very happy life. We often find ourselves councillors to friends who's relationships have failed.

    We moved in with each other a couple of weeks after meeting, engaged after 2.5 years, TTC just over 3 years and have now been together over 5 and a half years with number 2 on the way

    My parents were engaged within 6 weeks of meeting and married within 9 months... They lasted 27 years.
