How long did you know your partner before you got pregnant.

No matter if you're married or not, just from the time you met. It came up today with a friend. I told her I was pregnant with my oldest about 9 months after we met and 5 months after we started a relationship. Almost 8 years later we have 3 kids. She was kind of critical about it. How did I know he wasn't a serial killer or child molester. That kinda thing. Granted baby was not planned but those same questions could be asked about somebody you go out on a first date with or the cable guy you let in your house.
So how long?

7 years for us.

Eta: I wouldnt criticize a loving relationship just because you met and had children quickly. Sometimes you just know. One couple I'm very close friends met and married within 6 months. They've been together 20 years this year.

We met when we were young so 9 years or so. We started dating when I was 16 and got married when I turned 18. I had my oldest a month before I turned 21.
