The questions says it all :) how long do you think two people need to be together before they get married?

I don't really think the length of time is THAT important. What I think is important is that you live together BEFORE getting married! I cannot stress that enough! You never really get to know someone until you live with them. My mother, for example, sated my father for many years before they decided to get married. Then once they got married they moved in together (obviously). Only then did she realize what she had gotten herself into. He has a lot of mental problems that he was able to hide so well because they didn't live together. But once they moved in it all started to show.
He refused to get help and really messed me and my siblings up. Eventually my mother realized that he would never accept help and she filed for divorce because he was tearing our family apart. She said that had he known he was like that before, she never would have married him. He put us through hell all because my mother didn't really know him even after being together for many years. So just make sure that you live with your partner so you can really get to know them before getting yourself into a lifelong commitment.1
