It made it seem more like 6 months but it was, in fact, 6 weeks. It would seem far more likely to me they began courting when she moved to Jordan at the behest of her father.....and I can't remember when that was but it was months before she states the courtship began. I need to look up that article written by the journalist who described him as a lonely man and said it was post Alia and just before Noor. I posted it somewhere. That may give a better idea of timing.
I read somewhere that KH's proposal to Lisa took place only 2 months after QA's death, in April 1977, I doubt that can be true, but well, it could, don't know, really-
