    • Wedding: November 2014

    We started dating when we were 20 (he was a week away from turning 21). He proposed a few weeks away from me turning 26. I was still 26 when we got married (8 month engagement).

    • Wedding: October 2016

    Fiance and I started dating when I was 20 and he was 19.  We lived together (at times on our own,  at times with roommates, but always in a we-share-a-room-and-a-bed-and-are-definitely-a-couple way lol) essentially from day one.

    He proposed in March on our *seventh* anniversary.   At times,  I definitely went crazy waiting, but now that we’re here,  I’m glad we waited.  

    We’ll be 28 & 29 at our wedding next year – after 8.5 years together.

    We were 24 when we started officially dating and he proposed 1 year and 11 months into the relationship so we were both 26 😀

    I am 25 and my Fiancé and I have been together for 6 years. We have been SO busy with school/work that it feels like time has just flown by. We met when I was in undergrad and he was in law school. We recently got engaged, but we won’t be planning our wedding until I’m done with graduate school (Class of 2016!! Yay!!)

    • Wedding: April 2016

    We started dating when I was 17 and he was 19. We knew we wanted to get married early on but wanted to set ourselves up to live comfortably so waited on moving in together until we were both older. We moved in together when I was 23 and he was 25 and he proposed to me about 4 months later that year 🙂 It was just after our 6 year anniversary.

     

    As far as longest I would have waited – I would have never threatned him with an ultimatum as we were both on the same page. Since we started dating when we were so young, the wait didnt seem that crazy. I can see why someone who starts dating a guy when they are older (say 25) would find it hard to wait 6 years and be 31 when they get married!

    I’m 21 soon to be 22. My Fiance is 25 soon to be 26 and we just recently got engaged on Christmas. We have been dating a little over a year before he popped the question, and it was amazing. We are planning to have our wedding in 2018 and are just going to enjoy the blissful stage of being engaged!! But im not gonna lie I have bought some bridal magazines!!

    2 years. But we didn’t get married for another 4 years after that. Mostly because we were quite young when we started dating.

    carolynne:  Your frustration seems completely justified to me! His lack of flexbility on the house issue would make me a little concerned with how the two of you make decisions in the future.  Hopefully he realizes how important this is to you before you completely lose patience.

    • Wedding: April 2017 - Valleybrook Country Club

    We met when I was 22 and he was 29. We got engaged a week ago and I am now 25 and he is 32. He proposed almost exactly 3 years after meeting, but we were actually dating for just over 2.5 years. Perfect timing and ages. We’re planning an early 2017 wedding.

    we were together a year and a half before our engagement.  But both of our closest friends didnt get enaged until the 3 year and 4 year marks.
