My Fiance comes with a lot of family baggage (elderly parents in poor health, disabled brother for whom he will one day be fully responsible) so he wanted me to be absolutely sure that I wanted to marry him. Last summer, he asked me to think about it for one full year. If I was still sure by the next summer, he said, we would get engaged. And then he proposed just before Christmas. 🙂 Men can be so funny.

@Ninteenthchance: Yes! I know it will happen sometime in 2013, but have no idea when. He already has the center stone for my ring and just needs to have it set, so I think it will happen sooner rather than later!

I will be a September 2014 bride!!!! I have a timeline of no later than september but i think it will come sooner because he knows i might explode if i have to wait that long. I keep telling him i wanna be engaged by my 24th birthday (6th May) but not ON my birthday i want my own seperate day lol.
We already agreed on a wedding date of 20th sept 2014 so whatever happens i know i will be married in 18 months =]

You guys have been together a long time! Here’s to hoping the proposal comes soon, I have a feeling it will 🙂
Sept 2014 would be the ideal and in fact I have the 20th tentatively picked out too 🙂 Although it all depends on when we can get a venue etc and I haven’t even started planning all that yet… Weddings are so much work!

my timeline goes something like this… “could be today, tommorrow, one week, one month, one year, five years.” so pretty much sadly no:(

we have the same date 🙂
i dont have a proposal timeline but i know it will happen before the year is up because we already agreed on the wedding date. i keep telling him i will need time to book a venue so hopefully he gets the hint. i wont look at anything until i have a ring.

@Ninteenthchance: My BF has a ring (he’s had it going on 2 months!!) and said at new year it would happen within 6 months. We’re going on holiday in 10 days (!!!!) and I’m almost certain it’s going to happen when we’re away…! I’ve never been so excited for a holiday! And that’s saying something!!!!

I knew it was coming eventually but we didn’t have any sort of timeline… However, whenever I decided to move in we had a sit down conversation about it. I was giving up my house and a lot of my stuff for him and I had to know he was serious about it all before I did that. Less than 2 months later, he proposed.

Sort of. We didn’t have a specific time in mind but a few months after we started talking about marriage, I went to look at engagement rings at a local jeweler. FH asked for the jeweler’s card and said he was going to stop by. I knew a proposal was coming soon but I wasn’t sure when! He proposed 3 months later!

Yes, but I wish I didn’t because it keeps changing! Back in November we decided to get engaged (we already knew we wanted to, it was just the when that was the question) and he said it would happen by the end of December… and it didn’t. SO then he said by the end of January… and it didn’t… and then by the end of April, but last night he said there are problems and it’s being pushed back again. :/ He already has the ring, but by the time I get it I will have been waiting 6 months, minimum!

Thanks I’m very excited! We were engaged for about the amount of time you will be. It has seriously flown by and I’m so ready to be married already!
Good luck, waiting bees… and post those rings when you get them!

Nine and a half years later and I still don’t have a ring even though we’ll be married in the next three months! We’ve agreed that the time is right but it has taken a long time for me to find a ring we both love in our budget (started looking about December last year). We were waiting until he finished grad school, which took a year and a half longer than planned (argh).
This whole thing has driven me a bit crazy, but we’re getting there in the end…

I have a semi-timeline by default. We live in a different city from our parents. We went home to visit so he can ask my dad and have our parents meet for the first time. We don’t do that in my culture unless you’re about to get engaged. That was last weekend! So, I’m thinking anytime between now and a month or 2 🙂
