My hubby and I dated for almost 9 years before he proposed!  We started dating when we were 18/19.  I’ll admit it was torture waiting, but worth it in the end because I knew he was just as excited as I was to get married ๐Ÿ™‚

Just over a year.  We met a month after I got out of a 5 year relationship, and I never looked back.

We had been dating for nearly 5 years when he proposed, we are both in our 30s. I knew one month in that he was the one for me but this is one part of my life I was leaving to the traditional (I’m a planner LOL).

Interestingly enough his parents also got engaged after a 5 year relationship and they were in their 30s which was totally not the norm in the 70s. I said it must just run in his family!

We’re getting married this January ๐Ÿ™‚

I had known him exactly 10 years when he proposed this year in July. And we had been dating for 9 years. I was 2 months shy of turning 30! We’ll be married next August. This thread makes me feel better as for 9 years I sat back and watched everyone I knew get engaged and married after only being together for a few years or less than a year! I was tired of the constant “Why hasn’t he proposed?; When is the wedding?; Maybe he’s never going to marry you.” Glad to hear I wasn’t alone in this.

we were just a week shy of our 2 year anniversary when he proposed (we’ve lived together the entire time we’ve been a couple – we started out as “roommates”) and by the time we get married we’ll have been together almost 3 years.
