How long does it takes to get to know someone well enough to marry them? Is one month long enough? Six months? One year? The specific timeframe is different for everyone, but one thing is universally true: rushing into a relationship makes you much more vulnerable for a bad experience. If you take your time getting to know someone, you will learn about their good and bad points. If you watch their behaviors over time, you will get a feel for how they handle pressure and stress, how they are with children, how they are with their family and how they treat you when you are with their friends. Time will also let you know if you and your partner can trust each other with each other's hearts.
