My DH and I were engaged within 3 months of meeting. Does that mean we didn't/don't know each other? No. We talked an awful lot about our life, what we wanted for the future, family etc. Hell, we even talked politics on our first date which is normally a no-no! He knew me better in the first 6 months of our relationship than people who have known me for 20 years, and I him. We are always honest and open with each other, and that matters more than how long you have been together.
So what worked for you, would not work for me. We have a wonderful 2yo DS and a DD coming in March and are coming up on our 5th Wedding Anniversary (together for 6) soon. It has been a whirlwind at times, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I believe you may be referring to people who ttc before being ready for it - every couple, & individual, reaches "ready" at a different point in their lives & their relationships. Perhaps you were slower than me & my DP, & we were slower than my parents.

We had been together 3 months when we had a 'scare' which turned out to be nothing but it got us talking about how nice that 'accident' would have been and officially started TTC about 3 months after that, so 6months in (we were engaged by that stage)
That was 4.5 years ago and we are still trying

We were together for 5 years before we TTC, though we did have 2 accidental pregnancies (neither of which resulted in babies) before we TTC.
I think that having kids together really shows you what a person is like- sometimes you think you know someone well, but you get to know them better once you have kids together

About 4 months into the relationship I fell pregnant, was semi planned. I went off the pill the month before, we both didn't think it would happen so quick engaged 1 month later, married 16 months after that!
That was all 4 and a bit years ago now and we have bub #3 due in July

- Home, where my life lies waiting, silently, for me.
engaged 3 weeks after dating, married having known each other 11 months, TTC after having known each other 12 months, and being married 1 month.
Sadly it took 10 years for our first child on earth, and our next bellyfruit is now on the way.
