Marriage is serious. As much as we love each other and are best friends we needed enough time to be sure we could make it work. The thing is there will be tough times. It was important to us that we knew we were going to get through them together and in order to know that we needed more time together. I know people who have gotten married within a year of dating. I could never do that.
