We dated for 3 years before becoming engaged, we lived together for a year of that time. I did have about 6 months where I was anxious to get engaged. We’re married now and have been together 4 years. We are both 25.

We were together for just about 3 years when he proposed. We lived together for most of that time.

2 years and had lived together for almost 1. I was getting anxious because I always told myself I wouldn’t live with someone before the ring…and I did anyway. Made me scared he wouldn’t do it!

  • Wedding: March 2013

I’m one of the ones who thought it’d never happen. I’m on the last of my circle to get married (and most got married when they were between 18-20 and now we’re 26/27!). Plus, my Fiance had “requirements” before getting engaged, like finishing school, but since our degrees took longer than expected, I was getting antsy (we’re graduating on May 4th), along with other things that are too long-winded and I guess he realized it’s not or never. And I admit breaking down each and every time a friend of mine got engaged or married. Plus, I was the only cousin on both sides to not be married and/or with kids and I was always reminded of this. When people who ask when we were getting married, I felt so defeated and directed them to my Fiance.

I swear, I wasn’t bitter or upset. I’m so happy with him. But this subject got to me, since I thought I’d be married by now.

Anyway, we met in November of 2006 in college and began dating in March of 2007. We were friends first and that’s the way to go, in my book! We moved in together in April of 2009 (sadly, out of necessity, since my family home went into foreclosure) and we got engaged on our five-year anniversary! He’s 25 and I’m 26; we’re 16 months a part (my family jokes I’m a cougar).

We were together for more than 5 years when he proposed. We had lived together since about the 3 month mark.

I was itching to get engaged at around 4 years in when my friends started getting married (side note: they had dated their guys for considerably less time than we were together so I wasn’t taking it well). Ultimately, I’m happy we waited. We married at 25 which I happen to think is the perfect age. We’ll be celebrating 7 years of togetherness in May. ๐Ÿ™‚

It was 6 years and 7.5 months (but who was counting? ;-P) when Mr.ND proposed. Buuuut, that was when we were 22, we’d been dating since we were 15/16. We met when we were young at the summer place both our families stayed at, dated long distance through HS years, a shorter distance for college, and then had a nearly 2 yr LDR engagement while I wrapped up law school. So we actually got married after 8.5 years, at the age of 24 ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been with my boyfriend since we were 15.  We started hanging out back in the fall of 2002, but then started “officially dating” in April of 2003 (as official as you can get at 15 I guess hehe).  We’re finally looking at rings, so it seems the official engagement will happen sometime between the 9.5-10 year mark, but I’m def getting anxious!! haha

We got engaged on our 6 year anniversary! We met when I was 20 and in school. He was 25 and in law school. We were broke students and were in no place to get married. We have lived together for 5 of those years. We’ll be together 7 years by the time our wedding rolls around!

I always knew he was the one for me. I knew it would happen, but I had to wait for the right time. The wait was MORE than worth it!
