How Fast Is Too Fast?
Thirty days and they're married. Now, about telling their families...

Dear Willie D:

I met a man and we instantly connected. Five days into meeting each other, he asked me to marry him. I said yes because I had no reason to say no other than that we had just met.

Within 30 days we purchased a home, and on the 35th day we were married. No one knows how long we have known each other but him and me. Ikeep being asked by family members how long he and I have been dating, because they have never heard of him. Both of us always answer, "Fora while."

They're putting the pressure on us. Yes, what's done is done, but we agreed that after being together for at least four and a half years, we'll share with them in full the details of our connection — ifthey're still interested. What are your thoughts on this?

Instant Connection:

Life has but a few guarantees. Being drilled by family members and friends after you've bought a house with and married a man they don't know is one of them. Stick to your plan to reveal details of your connection later if that's what makes you comfortable. Although it's not necessary that your family and friends know how long you've known your husband, you should make an effort to get to know his background and find out if he is who he says he is.

Waiting gives you a chance to observe a person's true character and address any anxieties you might have. But like you said, what's done is done.

Ask Willie D appears Thursday mornings on Rocks Off.
