    bluesparkles:  I met DH when I was 19 and had two (horrible, yet serious) relationships before that time.  I am 25 now.

    • Wedding: March 2016 - Whitetail Ridge

    I was with my first boyfriend from 18-22, and honestly thought I’d marry him. Puppy love, when I was young and dumb. We grew up together and both changed a lot during the time. He apparently changed to the point of cheating. Then I had a second, kinda serious relationship for about 8 months after the first.

    I met my fiance when I was 24 and he was 27, we are now 26 and 29. We dated for a year and 5 months before getting engaged on Friday :), and everything has been amazing since we first met.

    I guess 3 or 4 would I could consider pretty serious.  Two in college that were 1-1.5 years.  Then after college one that was about 8 months and one that was 7 years.  Then I met my DH when I was 28.

    bluesparkles:  I was 21 when DH and I started dating (31 now, married 3 months).  Prior to DH I had a BF through grade 12 and first year uni, that was pretty serious – I was in the process of transferring universities so I could move to his city and we were going to get a place together.  I had a couple other semi-long term relationships after that before DH.  I had one other semi-long term relationship after him before DH.

    One. I was with my ex from age 17 to 26. We had been common-law partners since age 20. 

    I met my fiancé shortly after I broke up with my ex. It wasn’t planned, I wasn’t looking for another relationship at the time, but we started chatting on a forum and we had so much in common, I really felt I had to give him a chance although the timing wasn’t perfect and I’m so glad I did !

    My FI was my first really serious relationship (we met when I was 18 and have been together for 4.5 years), but I did have another serious relationship after I met him (yay poly) that lasted about 2 years.

    I voted for 2 – but really, one of them started when I was 13 and was 2 years and the other started when I was 15 and lasted just over 4.5 years but was incredibly abusive so I wouldn’t really consider them serious.

    I just turned 20 when I met my DH, and I’m now 28.  We got married on our 5 year dating anniversary, and our 3 year wedding anniversary is coming up in Oct.

    I was 14, he was 15. We had been friends all through HS. We both wanted to date each other, but didn’t have the courage to tell the other! Eventually we did start dating when I was 18. Now engaged 5 years later!

    I only had one relationship before him. But it was in HS…so not serious at all.
