How Long Before Being Diagnosed Did You Know Something Was Wrong?

How Long Before Being Diagnosed Did You Know Something Was Wrong?

My husband pushed and pushed me into marriage. I was happy with our relationship without a permanent commitment. So we marry 1 and half years after we met and 10 months later we married, he is diagnosed with PK. Looking back now that I know signs, I see them there at least a year before we got married.
