One of my close friends is 29 and his bride to be is 27. They just got engaged after almost a year of dating. They seem to really have connected and love each other very much.
But what are your thoughts on them getting engaged after almost a year of dating?

I don't think that's too soon. If anything I think people take too much time these days and are a little more commitment-phobic. And then their relationships still go to shit. Meanwhile, people who've gotten married within 3 months can end up staying with each other forever.4

The timing doesn't matter! What matters is that if you both know that this is what you want, is very certain you want to live the rest of your life with them, GO FOR IT! Just get married, and don't string each other along! You know how long my close friend and her now husband dated? 1.5 years and they got married this June. Both of them are happy that they did. Less than a year is more than enough time to know whether or not you two want to marry! Don't pay attention to anybody who tells you otherwise. This is YOUR life, YOUR marriage decision, and YOUR relationship. If you two want to do that, go do it. That's what advice I say for your friend.0
