Okay, so I know that I am not the only one (for obvious reason…hence the “waiting list”) who has had others become in engaged before me but how many of you have? I have had 2 younger sisters (one got engaged in May and married in September of this year…and they have been together less time than me and the BF) and my brother. I have had 6 childhood friends, 4 college friends, and 4 other friends all get engaged and married; the majority of them being within the past 2 years. I didn’t count those prior.

Alot of my college friends have gotten engaged/married but that is it. I would be the first of my high school crew.

My brothers were all married before me (They’re 5-12 years older). I had several HS and college friends get married first too. It didn’t really bother me.

@DaisyBride: Yea I wasn’t really bothered by the majority of them getting married. The only one that kind of got was my 21 year old sis.

I voted 4-6 but the real number is 5. Me and my BF have been together 4.5 years. EVERYONE we know has gotten engaged, married and has had children already!!!
Mind you we have been together WAY longer than any of them!

OK, this is a little complicated for me.
FI and I first got engaged in 2005. Aside from maybe one other friend, I was the first to get engaged.
Didn’t work out. We were still together, but not engaged anymore. We moved back in together around the very beginning of this year and got re-engaged and bought a house.
Well between the time we first got engaged and now, my only (and younger) brother got married and has two kids. And almost everyone I know is engaged or married. Lots of the people who are married weren’t even dating yet when FI and I first got engaged. It feels really weird!!! LOL

Pretty much all of my close friends are already married. I have 6 siblings..My oldest sister has been married for 27 years (has been since she was 16). My younger brother has been married for 4 years (will be 5 on jan. 1st). The rest of us have never been married =) I am getting married in December, my younger sister is getting engaged in January (I know that but she doesn’t…LOL).
My dad was 42 when he got married so it never really bothered me that all of my friends have been married and have started families. I always knew that I would be a “late bloomer” so to speak.
We were raised not to believe in, or ever contemplate divorce so we all are taking our time and waiting on the right person b/c we will be with them for the rest of our lives =)

We attended seven weddings this past summer alone. SEVEN. And some of those couples started dating after we did.

Two of my best friends have gotten engaged/married and I just found out today that one of them is pregnant! I am so happy but a part of me wishes I could be going through all of this with them!!! A few other friends have gotten engaged/married as well and another friend of mine who isn’t married yet is pregnant too! Whew!!!!!!!!!!!

Both my brothers are married. But FH’s family he is the first to get engaged.
When I FB stalk (come on we all do it) it seems like I am the last of my HS friends to get engaged/married, but out of college I am among the first and only few who have so far. FH has told me most of his HS friends have yet to get married or engaged…He is from the same area but went to a different HS, he is also 3 years older than me. I guess people from my HS class were all about getting married

We’re both the youngest in our families and the last to get married (it worked out perfectly in order). As far as friends, I think we each only had one friend to get engaged before us, the rest of our ‘group’ are single and I think only one other couple is engaged.

wow these poll results make me sad. what are our boys waiting for?!?!? but also make me feel a little better because it seems like the lot of us here are the rule and not the exception! that doesn’t make it any better as a trend overall though…. sigh!

I was invited to nine weddings this summer and was able to go to nine. It was insane, and hard because my FI was in MN and I was/am in AK, and not engaged yet. I was invited to be in one that I could not make it too, and sang in one that I went too.
