] How long were you exspected to court someone before marrage?
I don't know that there are any real guidelines. The couple usually waited until they had the parents' approval, and then they had to spread the news around their social circle. And then it was the matter of scheduleing with your vicer. But speedy proceedings like the Rushworths' and the Collins' were not uncommen, either.
Am I way off?
