    I know some guys who waited months to a year after getting the blessing to propose. Luckily my FH only waited 2 weeks.

    About 10 minutes haha

    From the jewelery store, he went straight to my parents to ask for their blessing, and then came to pick me up. His orignal plan was to do it a week later, but he was just too excited lol

     FI bought the ring on a Friday and then went out of town. Had the ring shipped to him while he was out of town; it arrived on tuesday. He came home Friday night. We left for NYC Saturday morning. He called my mom while I was in the bathroom at a rest stop and proposed about 90 minutes later ๐Ÿ™‚

    He talked to my dad at Christmas, we picked out the ring in February, and he proposed the night he picked it up from the store.  Why would anyone wait once they had the ring in hand?

    Over 6 months. He asked my father at the end of the rugby season and he didn’t propose until February this year.

    I think he had the ring for about 2 weeks and it was 5 days after he asked my Dad’s blessing.

    A few hours.

    Really though, we’d been together 12 years at that point, Darling Husband didn’t even really need to ask – it was a “given” everyone wanted us to get married. Darling Husband kept it a secret and took my dad to lunch the day he proposed to clue him in that it was THE day.

    We bought the ring together at the end of August so we considered ourselves more or less engaged. But he didn’t technically propose, and we didn’t make it public, until my birthday in November because he still wanted some element of surprise.
