We had lived together for 4 years and dated for almost 7 years when we got engaged.

I wish I could say for certain… I think we moved in together about 3 months or so after dating. We got engaged after a year and 9 months after dating, so I guess we lived together about a year and a half before we got engaged…

8 months.

It was a premeditated decision… We moved in with the intent to get engaged in 6-10 months assuming everything was going well. We also had agreed that we didn’t want a long engagement and would start planning and set a date soon thereafter. 

You should definitely have this future discussion now. Maybe you both want to be 25 first or something, but you for sure need to know if you are on the same page.

We dated about a year and a half. Once we were both finished high-school we moved in with one another for university.


Got engaged about… 5 years later I think?
