@DollfacedKate:  Good luck to you!  It’s nice to see someone else on here who has been with their SO for less than a year. You’re right, when you know, you know.  Generally speaking, I’ve felt like sometimes, people who have been with thir SO for under a year are dismissed on the boards.  I get a strong feeling from reading other posts that if you haven’t been with your SO for years and are thinking about marriage, you’re not taken seriously.  Obviously, not a big deal but I hope you are able to get lots of helpful advice!  Your situation sounds very promising. πŸ™‚

Yep, I’ve been dismissed here myself for being in a short relationship (10mos), but that’s the entire truth…When you know, you know. I’m also older (40) and been divorced, so it’s not like my first relationship or a lack of life experience. Good for you!

Timelines are nice to have!

@itsmle:  Amen. I’ve been married before too.  I was only 24…I’m now 30 and after being cheated on in my first marriage, I know EXACTLY what I’m looking for and I’m so lucky to have (finally) found it in my SO.  Us year and unders need to unite!  I mean geesh, we’re not running off and eloping after 2months…Just thinking about being engaged and married withing the next year or two which is totally normal at this point in our lives.  There’s nothing wrong with not dating 5+ years before thinking of an engagement.   Tired of being hated on. Rant over. :). Best of luck!

@DollfacedKate: I good for you for holding up the SIUP.  It’s not easy. Even though I’ve proudly SIU for the last month and a half, I wasnt acknowledged in last weeks recognitions. No big deal, I just figure it’s because of my shorter relationship (8 mos).  Hopefully, you don’t experience that! 

Anyway, props to you for not moving in before an engagement. I’m not going to have him move in until after there’s a ring on it and a date set.  I have incredible respect for that because I know it’s not easy.  Good for you!!!

Just start trying for kids a month before the wedding. This way no matter what you will be pregnant after the wedding itself.

Congrats! how exciting! I am the same age as you and have been given the same timeline (we’ve been together for quite some time but agreed, the length of a relationship doesn’t define how significant it is!)

I’m very excited and very impatient! haha I’m joining the shut it up pact too.. he laughs at me when I talk about weddings all the time but I’ve decided I should probably give the poor guy a break.. I’ve already picked my ring and he’s having it custom made so I just need to relax a little! πŸ™‚

This is so exciting for you!!!!! I recently got my ttc timeline, havin a timeline seems to make everything that little bit easier!!!

i also wanted to add that I can resonate with not being taken seriously. While Fiance and I have been together for 3.5 years, it was 2 years when we became engaged and will be when to the day when we marry – I am only 21 and he 23. So many people think we won’t make it because we’re young. 

Now back to all the yayyyyyyyyys! And congratulationssssss!!!!!! And good luckkkkk!!!!!!! And I’m glad you’re super happy!
