We got engaged in May of this year, a couple of weeks shy of the five year mark. We moved in together just a couple of months after we met, but I never wanted to get married and thought the status quo worked for us. Once I hit 30 I started thinking that marriage probably would make sense, if only for life planning and benefits. I guess it’s a good thing I changed my mind about the institution since he started thinking about asking me earlier this year! I will be 32 and he will be 35 when we get married next September.

@paulajmc4:  This is sooo my same story! Met him at 19, and he proposed on my 41st birthday. 🙂

We got engaged right away, less than 6 months after weeks met. But by the time we marry we will have been together for 5 years. Short dating perod, long engagement period lol.

We got engaged after 5 years, almost 6 years.   It was a question of money though, we think being engaged just for the sake of being engaged without actually planning a wedding is kind of silly, so we waited until we could actually afford to plan a wedding.   It was still a surprise, but we had been talking about marriage for a while.   We will have been together for 8 1/2 years when we get married and I will be almost 32 years old.

Nope, not that long!  We dated for nearly 5 years, but we’d been friends for 10.

Aww, I’m so glad to read this thread!  So many of my friends met the fella, dated a year, got engaged, and married 6-12 months later.  My fella and I… well, we first met/kissed/young love in 1997 (my freshman year of college).  I fell in love with his smile then but don’t remember too much else as to why we didn’t keep trying to be together.  We stayed friends – close friends and officially got back together in January 2011.

Less than one year. Exactly 1 week before our engagement.

Freaking forever :P. Just kidding – he’s pretty much stuck by the timeline that I gave him really early on….

Just shy of 6 months. We knew almost off the bat we were for each other 🙂
