We had dated for 3 years and 8 months when he proposed.  We were both 34 at the time of the proposal.

He recently asked me how long would I have waited for a proposal…. my answer: 4 years (in total).

We dated a year, then got engaged.  Then got married a year later.

He proposed right at two years!  Threw me a surprise birthday party (1st one I’ve ever had) and proposed.  When we get married, I’ll be two months shy of my 40th birthday.  This is my first marriage.  I’m so excited.

We had been together 4 1/2 years when he proposed. When we get married, we’ll have been together just shy of 6 1/2 years.

8 years! And EVERYONE wants to know “what the problem was”! Sheesh–there was not problem. We just weren’t ready to get married until now.

8 years here too! We are really taking our time, we still don’t have a date. Like JennyW1, everyone keeps asking what the hold up is… I don’t know what is taking us so long, but then, we have our whole lives together, so what’s the rush?

He is 34 however, so I am hoping he and I both, will be ready in the next year or so… Embarassed

We were together for 4 years before he proposed! I think it allowed us to be even more sre of our fututre together.

Four years and a couple of months for us.

My parents have been together for twenty-eight years and still haven’t made it legal.

My aunt was with her husband for about 10 or more years before they got married. They are both in their 50s. My friend was with her guy 7yrs before he proposed, they met at 20 while we were in college. (we’re 29 now)

11 months. We had been talking about marriage by our 5th month together, and he proposed at the end of a week of biking and camping. When you’re both 41 and you’re surviving 80 miles of biking per day together, sharing a pup tent, and checking out each other’s saddle sores, you kind of know you are ready.
