My fiance and I were engaged after one year. He poped the question on our one year anniversary. I knew he was the one just months after dating.

Seven years!  We met freshman year of college and needed time to figure out our lives, so I don’t fault him too much, but by year five I was getting antsy.

We were together 5 1/2 years before he proposed. I felt like I watched so many other couples begin a relationship after us, get engaged, get married, and I had no ring! Now that he’s finally proposed and we are planning our wedding, he keeps saying to me, “I wish we were just married already.” Yeah, we could have been – you were the one dragging your feet, buddy!

We were dating a little over 5 years when he proposed.  We were married 6 years and a week after our first date.  I was 31 and he was 29.

We were formally engaged at our 6 year dating anniversary and got married 3 months later. I wasn’t waiting for a proposal though. I was waiting until I was ready to get married again. Technically he was the one waiting, so I don’t know if that counts. I proposed at 5.5 year mark.

Friends for 3 years. Then in a relationship for another 2 years when he popped the question. (And at that point we had been living together for 10 months.)

We’ve now been engaged for almost 1.5 years and we’re getting married in Oct.

We had many talks about marriage before he proposed — what it means to him… what it means to me… what we both want in the long term, etc.

It concerned me for awhile why it took him as long as it did only because we were in our late thirties (I just turned 39), but he made it very clear to me at one point that I shouldn’t prod him anymore about proposing because it was immasculating to do so.

I’ve learned slow and steady works for me.

Took 3 years for him to propose, but it was worth every minute. Hes ready and when you know hes ready things turn out for the best. Congrats all bee’s.. Laughing
