I am curious how long everyone has been together, how long it took to become engaged and then how much time you’ll have been together by the time you get married. If you’re already married, how long were you together before you were married? I’ll start:
July 4, 2004- At 16, SO and I became boyfriend and girlfriend.
Sometime during 2013, we’ll get engaged (we need to save the money for my ring to be made).
July 4, 2014- we’ll get married on our 10th anniversary at age 26.

We were together just under 5 years on our wedding day.
Started dating in June ’07, engaged June ’11, married June ’12 (9 days before our 5 year anniversary).

It’ll be 6 1/2 years by the time we get married. We got engaged after 4 1/2 years.

Your story sounds remarkably like my Future Sister-In-Law 🙂 She and her fiancee met at a very young age. They are only 30, but just had their 10th or 11th wedding anniversary!
~ November 20, 2010 – Met FH
~ December 25, 2010 – FH and I made things official (BF/GF)
~ March 30, 2012 – FH proposed
~ July 13, 2013 – We’ll be getting married 🙂 (recently pushed the date back by 6 weeks)
Sometimes I can’t believe how quickly things progressed, but we both knew very early on that we were just perfect for each other 🙂

We met January 25 2011, got engaged November 22, 2011, and got married on March 10, 2012. So we knew each other 13.5 months before we got married. (We are both 36).

Started dating April 12 2008, engaged June 23 2010 and marrying on oct 20 2012. So I guess that’s 4 years and a bit. If we keep this pattern going, we will have kids in 2014 lol ( hopefully we will have babies sooner than that)

I have two answers. One is about 6 years. The other is three and a half.
FH and I dated in high school, but we were off and on. I was 15 and he was 17 when it happened the very first time (March 2008). Three years later, our current relationship started. Our 18 months was in August.
We got engaged July 26th of this year, and we’ll be married May 31, 2014.

- Wedding: September 2014 - Lodge
We got engaged right away, like 6 months after we met. We were talking about being married that fall but I felt I couldn’t throw my dream wedding together in less than 6 months after that. So we planned for this year (actually would have been married today) but a few things made us push the wedding back and since the venue we wanted has a 2 year waiting list we are now planning for 2014. So altogether we will be together for 5 years.

@Tessarie: reading your post made me feel better…. I been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend for 6 months and we’re getting engaged any time now. His mom is giving him her engagement ring to give to me; just getting it resize. And we’ll be getting married sometime next year. Similar to your timeline of engagement to marriage. I’m 28 and his 36. Just knowing you want to be with your SO no matter if you’ve been with him for a month till 10yrs. You just know when it feels right.

We were matched on eHarmony, decided to meet in person a little more than two months later, were engaged five months after that, and married 11 months following our engagement.
