You turn to your guy and look into those beautiful eyes. And then you ask, "So, when do you think your divorce is going to be finalized?

Of course, every guy and his situation are different, but in general terms, I think I can safely say I know a little bit about how the divorced guy thinks. Here are 10 questions you should never ask someone you've dated for less than a year: 1. You see, I've always had this two year rule in my mind for how long I want to date someone before we get married.

It took me a long time to learn not to take anything personal when it comes to the kids of a boyfriend or girlfriend. They just don't like the fact that Dad has a girlfriend.
We're worried that our friends/family will freak out because it's so soon.
We're both in our 30's and have been in other serious relationships, have great careers, etc.
There's no rush for us to get married but we want to and I'm 32 and we'd like to have more children although that's not why we want to get married.
So I guess my questions are; am I crazy, how long would you (should we) wait if you think it's too soon?
