For me, it was right before our 6 month anniversary. My friends were floored. One of them begged me to have a long engagement, just to make sure. She said she couldn’t imagine marrying someone she hadn’t known for a couple years. I said, hey, neither could I, until I met him!
Were people shocked and appalled at your fast engagement? Do you wish you had waited?
I liked getting engaged really fast. It was the easiest decision I ever made.

You may want to change the poll to 7-9 months so there’s not the overlap. 😉
For us – 6 months, too, and we don’t feel it was too soon. When you’re in love you just KNOW.
Nobody was shocked because everyone who knows us and sees us together says we’re absolutely perfect for each other. I don’t wish we’d waited, I’m very happy everything has worked out exactly the way it has.

@Sunfire: Fixed the overlap! Hope that doesn’t screw up anyone’s vote!!!

@MrsGrayIndy: 2 weeks!? That’s hysterical. Must’ve worked out though:-)

5 months. When you know, you know.

A little after a year. We will only be together 3 years a month before we get married. I think a lot of people are shocked when they hear that – like they’re expecting we were together for 10. So technically most of our relationship has been during our engagement. I think that’s nice.

We aren’t getting engaged soon because we’re still in school, but we unofficially moved in with each other almost as soon as we started dating! When you know, you know!

Yep! I want to ask my fiance if we can get, “You just know” engraved on our wedding bands. That’s the motto of our whole relationship.

A friend of mine got engaged two weeks after she met her boyfriend and they were married another four weeks after that (so they had only known each other for six weeks!) She didn’t tell us ahead of time and we were all shocked to find out, but they’re still married more than ten years later!

First date September 19th
Moved in October 19th (Was also the first night he spent the night together in my home and he just never went back)
Engaged November 23rd
Getting married on August 3rd
I am 38, he is 41. I think we know what we want by now. Really all of our friends and family are on board and are totally happy about it. Occasionally we get the “didn’t you learn the first time” comments since we are both divorced.

We just moved in together and have been dating 2 and a half months. He’s officially proposing by his birthday (in a month and a half) and we’re getting married 12.12.12 (so around 8 months). For us, we’ve both had multiple serious relationships that just didn’t work, so when we found each other and everything fits it just makes sense. We both know what we want out of our marriage and have similar views about life. Plus he has full custody of his daughter, and so we want our family to be “official” as soon as possible. 🙂

Well, not engaged yet, but it’s coming. However, I told my parents he was the man I was going to marry before I ever met him 😛
Maybe I’m psychic!

I’m young and got engaged soon. I’m 18 and got engaged after dating 13 months. People have treated us very harshly! But you just know sometimes! (we knew after 3/4 months.
Plenty of people date for years before getting married and still break up, you decide how your relationship will be so only you decide the timeline.
As long as youre both ready who matters.
