I started thinking about it about 2 years in, but that was because my brother was getting married then and I’d been behind the scenes in his planning process and started falling down that rabbit hole (the ins and outs of family drama, pretty wedding blogs, etc) ๐Ÿ˜‰ if my brother hadn’t been getting married, I think I wouldn’t have started thinking about it for awhile longer because I was still pretty young at that point (24 at my bro’s wedding) and always imagined getting married older. though maybe not– dh and I had just moved in together and got a dog, so we were already getting pretty domestic at that point.

I think we first talked about it right before we moved in together! So about 6 months. FI was ready to settle down, apparently! I didn’t get a (really bad) wedding itch until we’d been together a little over a year, and he proposed at 14.5 months of dating!

Around our 8 year anniversary, just under a year ago ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re pretty young though, and started dating before highschool even, so marriage wasn’t even on our minds until recently.

I got it BAD after we’d been dating a year.  We had talked about it extensively very early on (2 months), but he ended up proposing at 1.5 years.

I got the itch a few months short of 3 years. We’re pretty young, but even I’m surprised that we were at his brothers wedding 6 months prior to that and it took me that long to start thinking about it lol Before that point I never even looked at engagement rings (not even pictures!) I can’t believe myself now haha I’ve been on this site all day today lol

Not until about 9 years in (when I was ~27)!  Crazy, I know.  Marriage always seemed like something “grownups” do and I didn’t feel that way for a long time.

@lilsweetie:  I would have say about 8 years in! We got engaged on our 9 year annivesary. We had discussed marriage before, but didn’t really start talking a wedding until the 8 year mark.

We were young when we started dating, so at 24 and 26, we decided we were stable enough to take the next step.

never. it just progressed naturally and he was the one to bring it up first – and pretty early on.

I definitely starting getting antsy about early November of last year. After nearly three years, I thought it was time!
