How early is too early to say I know I want to marry my boyfriend? We've only been dating for a week,we were friends for about two months before, but I know I want to marry him one day. I'm not going to tell everyone this, but I know it. I was actually engaged for two years because I thought I loved my ex enough to marry him. That's why I'm not going to tell people this until it's been long enough. I told him I'm going to marry him, but he was really tired so he might not remember it. If he does remember it, he may not know how serious I am. Near the end of our first date, I thought "I'm going to marry him". He's told me he wants to make a life with me: marry me, get our own place together, have kids, everything. I love him.
