Rules of Engagement

I subscribed to a Catholic Singles website and have been hanging around there for a while. I must say that my mind sometimes gets blown away with what some idiots think about life. It seems that a large part of them are sheeple or they have no clue about their own Faith. Some of them are just plain mean and stupid. Naturally, me being myself have had the opportunity to piss a few of them off. Too bad, they shouldn't be idiots.

My question for you is "How long should a couple be engaged before they marry?"

Before anyone gets a wild idea, no i am not getting engaged. This was a question that posed on one of the forums. I am interested in what you think.

I think it depends on the age and maturity of the couple. If it is a 21 year old couple, they need lots of time to work through the logistics of marriage. If they are in their 60's, go for it.

I believe that any two people can make it work if they are both 100% committed to making it work. They have to love the other with all their heart. If they can meet these two prerequisites, then the marriage will work. As long as you put the other one first, it will be a happy marriage.

You hit the nail on the head, Ray. Anything less than complete commitment is bound to end in failure.
