My (then) boyfriend and I were together for 2 years before we moved in together. 11 months later, he proposed on Christmas Eve.

Dating for a year, moved in and 5 months later engages.  We are in our mid-30’s so it just felt right and we are ready for that phase of our life  ๐Ÿ™‚

@PenguinLove:  i feel ya…living together 5 1/2 yrs & no proposal yet ( think its coming in July tho!)

 

we dated for 3 1/2 years (i was 15, him 16) moved in together on my 19th birhtday (jan 2008)

if we get engaged next month on our 9 yr anniversary, (which im thinking is when he’ll do it) we’ve both discussed having a short engagement (9-10 mths) & get married a few months before our 10 yrs ๐Ÿ™‚

@MrsTVLover:  Six years? There still is some hope for me!

We moved in after 9 months of dating and that was a year and a half ago and I’m still waiting. Think it is about time since we are a “retired”40+ couple.

We had been dating 5 years when we moved in together at 23 and 24. We lived together for almost 2 year before we got engaged at 25 and 26.

@alohakay:  I don’t have the ring yet but I know it is in the house and I know he’s planning on doing it soon. we moved in together in October and it will probably be in July or August….so about 10-11 months after we moved in together ๐Ÿ™‚

I recently just got engaged with my Fiance. Not sure if you count moving in with each other if I was there 4 days out of the week. Sometimes I would be there for a full week. I have 50% of my stuff there tho. I’m asian american so my mom refused for me to move in with him until we get married. I still go back and forth to my moms house and his.

He stopped going back to his apartment in January 2012 and we officially got our own place together in August 2012.  We got engaged in June 2013.  So around 10 months, officially, but 17 months total.

We were dating 9 months when he got a job in my city (we met at a wedding and were in a LDR the whole time) and we got an apartment together. He proposed after 7 months of living together. We bought our first house in November of last year, and were married on June 1st of this year!
