1. I guess I had 1 serious boyfriend before I was married. It was my jr and senior year of high school.

2. I was 24 when I got married. We were together for 3 years before we were married. After the first year I was given a promise ring, after the second my engagement ring and then a year later we were married

Three serious boyfriends before I met DH.

My "first love" entered my life at age 20, and I felt we were "destined" to be together. I put up with a lot of crap from him as a result and wasted a lot of years thinking we could work it out.

The second serious boyfriend started as a "rebound" from Mr. First Love. I was the one who insisted we "keep it casual" b/c I was coming out of a bad relationship. We had so much fun, and I really enjoyed spending time with him. Falling in love just sort of crept up on us. He was the one who first talked about our future--the possibility of getting married and having kids--but I still wasn't ready to go there. We eventually broke up, and honestly, I regretted that for a long time.

The third really serious boyfriend was 16 years older than me. Again, we had a wonderful time together. He had travelled extensively and enjoyed "fun" stuff like riding motorcycles, flying a plane, going to his house at the lake for boating, etc. However, he was 44 years old and had never been married, and I honestly don't think he ever intended to get married. He was very upfront from the start that he would not commit to a long term relationship, but we were "exclusive" during the time we dated. I used to joke that I would let him hang around until "Mr. Right" came along.

And low and behold, suture DH showed up while I was dating Mr. Old-But-Lots-Of-Fun Guy. I ended up breaking it off with him when I realized that future DH and I were starting to click. I think the older guy was a little surprised that I wasn't really kidding LOL.

DH and I were married less than one year after we started dating, just a few months shy of my 30th birthday.

If we count more than a couple of dates, I had quite a few boyfriends since I guess I may not have dated in the traditional way. Most of my relationships lasted about 3 months. At 3 months I started to get bored or I had my eye on someone new.

I dated one guy from age 17-18 for a little over a year.
I was with another guy for about 6 months right as I turned 21, but we were on and off for another couple of years, never really "together," but since we were also really good friends and ran in the same circle we were never really apart either.
Finally one I dated, but knew it was just fun, for around a year, maybe over from age 22-23.

Let's see...I was 18 when I married for the first time. If you don't count my pre-school crush on a boy named Bill or my unrequited love for Jimmy D all through middle school, then I'd say I only had TWO serious boyfriends prior to marrying XDH.

We divorced after 4 years.

I had one serious boyfriend after my divorce and after that ended, I met DH at age 28. We've been together for 20 years and celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary earlier this year.

Dh and I met when we were 16/17, so I only dated a few guys before him. We got married when we were both 19, and we'll be celebrating our 19th anniversary in October.

DH and I married when I was 19. I was always the girl who had a 'serious' boyfriend...8 months or more and actually "in love" (as much as you can be in high

I would say there were three that were REALLY serious.

I dated a lot and was engaged twice before I met the Frog. The first guy proposed on my 16th birthday we were engaged 18 months. The second guy was my rebound guy. We realized it was a mistake about 2 months later so we split just before I graduated High School.
I met the Frog that Fall we were engaged 2 weeks later and married 3 months after that the Christmas before I turned 19. We were married for 27 years before he passed away 6 years ago.

One serious boyfriend who I thought was the one. Two others who were as serious as they could be for my age and place in life at the time. I had a few other short-lived relationships.

I met DH at 18, began dating him at 19, and we married at 22. We celebrate 10 years of marriage next week.

I had three serious boyfriends, but only one would have even remotely been considered the marrying type. DH and I dated for 6 months, got engaged, and married a year and a half later. I was 25 when we started dating, and 27 when we got married.

Before my first marriage, I had a high school sweetheart that I dated for nearly 5 years. Shortly after we broke up, he told me he was going to ask me to marry him. So glad I didn't!

After my first marriage, I was engaged to a guy that I had an unhealthy on/off relationship with for 4 years. Glad I didn't marry him either!

And now dh. I was 33 when we married, him 28.

I'd say I had 3 serious boyfriends (one engagement) before I met DH. We were both 29 when we met. Married 10 months later (engaged 12 days!). We will celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary in December.

DH and I were 21 when we started dating, 22 when we got engaged, and 23 when we got married. He is my one and only.

ETA bumpea reminded me that I got "married" in first grade. On my front porch. We had pink snowball cupcakes for wedding cake. I told dh the story and he had a pink cupcake waiting for me at our reception.

I probably had about 3 serious boyfriends, one of which I was engaged to and called off the wedding 3 weeks before the date when I caught him cheating on me. Those 3 guys each lasted greater than a year in terms of length of relationship. I was 31 when I finally got married to my DH and I'm thankful I didn't rush to marry earlier than that.

I only had one boyfriend I would consider "serious." We only dated for about 4 months but I was really in love with him and he broke my heart. It took me over a year to really get over that. I met DH a few months after I was at a point where I was truly feeling okay again.

We had our first date when I was 2 weeks away from turning 22 and he was 22. When we got married I was 24 and he was 25--we're 3 months apart. We just celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary and I can't believe it's been that long!

I met DH while dating my first serious boyfriend, who I stayed with from my senior year of high school through my sophomore year of college).

I had 2 serious relationships after college.

I married my ex-h when I was 28.

I started seeing dh again after the ex and I split.

We've been married 6 years.

(So the answer is 3 before my first marriage, and 4 total. I married at 28 & 33.)
