Another reader – who was attempting to shoot down my assertion that you should ideally wait 2-3 years before getting engaged – sent me a link to a super-informative article.

(Olivier is also a composer and musician, so I’ve been getting that one a lot.) I’m not in a rush.

I’ve never been one of those women who’s had this gigantic desire to get married.

If it happened, it happened; if it never did, then fine, cool, whatever — it wasn’t a milestone on my life plan.

But don’t we all need to know people more when we decide to get married?

I’ve been getting into it recently with some readers who have a slightly different take on when people should get engaged. One reader on my Facebook page wrote: “When a man’s in love he wants to propose as soon as he can.” Needless to say, I disagree with that. If you expect your marriage to be otherwise, you’ve got a big surprise waiting for you.
