The engagement ring posts made me wonder this, especially those who spent 8000 plus on their rings. I can see doing that if you are older and established but there was no way DH and I could have spent that.
DH and I dated for 3 weeks before we got engaged, I was 20. My parents were actually married within 2 weeks of meeting each other. DH's parents conceived him on their first date and were married within 2 months. It will be weird if DD grows up to date someone for 5 years and then get married lol!
