2 months….Crazy I know.  We met when we were 10 years old.  His mom and my mom were best friends.  His mom passed away in 1999 and we lost touch.  He found my dad  in the phone book when he was looking for a doctor.  It was right around the time I graduated from grad school.  My parents invited him to dinner and it was history from then on.  My friends thought it was a little too “There’s Something About Mary”.  We’ve been engaged for a year and a half and have 6 months to go.  I think we made up for getting engaged quick by having a long engagement.

Two and a half years.  Which was about one year longer than necessary, in my opinion.  ๐Ÿ™‚

He proposed just shy of our 2 year anniversary and we’ll be married just after our 3 year anniversary. I never really *waited* though. I knew the proposal was coming, I didn’t know when, but I wasn’t in any rush either.

I love the “long term” relationship stories! We were together 5.5 years before he proposed. When we get married we will have been together for 8.5 years. I hated waiting all these years but looking back, I am glad we have, it’s been so good for our relationship!

We were high school sweethearts…and celebrated 8 years on november 4th. He proposed November 7th …3 days later, after I returned from a weekend trip to visit some university friends. He didn’t want me to be expecting it ;). When we get married we’ll have been together for 10 years.

We got engaged after dating for 3 1/2 years and we are waiting one year to get married.  Our 1 year engagement is mostly so I could get my dream wedding venue, which we had to book one year in advace.

18 months or 1 year and 6 months…however you like to look at it;) We knew after 3 months we would get married. We were older too, not old, but I was 26 bascially 27 when we got engaged and he was 25. We just knew.

@JennyW1: Soooo right there with you!!!! He waited a little over 6 years and were getting the same questions about what the wait was. UGH! Is it so wrong to enjoy your twenties and not add the pressures (and bills) that come with marriage? lolol
