Me: 30

Him: 29

We met online so we were only talking to each other for a couple weeks before we met. Started dating right away after we met.

Dated for just over 4 years, engaged for 3.5 years (yup! we planned a big wedding we cancelled and then did a Destination Wedding this year) and have been married for 4 months as of yesterday.

  • Wedding: April 2013

We met when I was 22 (he was 23).

We started dating after knowing each other for 2-3 months.  He moved cross country to be with me after about 6 months of dating long distance.

At about age 25 we knew we would get married eventually but weren’t ready yet.

At age 28 we got engaged.

At age 29 we got married.

So in total it was a little under 7 years from first meeting to marriage.  We mostly waited longer b/c we were young and not in a rush to marry.  In our world 30 is a pretty normal marrying age.

Darling Husband is just over a year older than me so you can do the math haha!

I was 19 when we started talking and began dating. We got engaged on our second [dating] anniversary which made me 21. We got married a littler over a year and a half later when I was 23. We have less than a week until our third [marriage] anniversary and I am now 26!

  • Wedding: May 2016

Met 4 years ago, both 22. Dated for 8 months… and then broke up! A year later, after a little growing up on both our parts, we ran into each other again and rekindled the relationship. Dated for another year and a half before getting engaged on Christmas Eve 2014. He said he wasn’t going to let me get away again, smart man lol ๐Ÿ™‚ we’ll both be 27 when we get married in May 2016!

  • Wedding: January 2016 - 1950s themed bar

I’m 25, he’s 30. Met once then met again about a month later. Spent a week together before he went travelling but didn’t make it official until about a week after that (while he was away). Got engaged after 10 months dating, will be engaged about one and a half years before we get married…so all up I think we will have been together about two and a half years before we’re married.

Talked at a iphone-game 1st january 2013, lol, met at valentines day 14th feb 2013, then we talked on the phone for hoooours eeeevery day, until like 20th june, then we had a pause, since I felt “stressed” about him starting to tell me he wanted to take me on a date, when I wanted to see him as just friends, haha. In august i missed him so much that I called him, then we went on our first real date at 3rd of november. He took me to a fancy restaurant where Joe Labero performed, and since then we have been inseparable. The 18th december we had a “minichristmas” at my place, since I was going away over the christmas weekend, then I told him that i was in love with him. I moved in with him in the city he lives in 30 jan 2014 and at the 22 february 2014 we decided that we would be officially a couple, since that was the first time we said “i love you”, lol, and now i’m just waiting for a ring!

  • Wedding: November 2016

We met on our first day back at school when we were 13/14 and became good friends.  About a year later we finally began dating.  When we were 18 he asked me to marry him, at 19 I got an aquamarine ring as a place holder ring (although I kind of like it more than my diamond) and at 20 I recieved my diamond ring and we officially became engaged!  Now we are 22 and will be married at 23 ๐Ÿ™‚

SO it’s been 6 years ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wedding: December 2016

We were both 15 when we met! We had mutual friends; I was actually dating someone else, but we broke up shortly after. It was another few months after that when my Fiance asked me out. We did “break up” during year 12, as our parents were putting A LOT of pressure on us to do well. In total, we’ve been together a little over 8 years and engaged for not even a week lol.

  • Wedding: September 2016

When we met I was 15 and he was 17 through my bff as they were in karate together. We went to different schools, but we went on 1 date and that was it. We stayed friends over the years, really only speaking through msn and email and then we started dating when I was 20 and he was 22. He proposed about a week before my 28th birthday and we are planning on getting married next winter, so I will be 29, and he will be 31!
