SO mentions it often (probably twice as often as me) saying he can’t wait to spend forever with me and one day we will get married etc. I am still in school (3 years left) and probably wouldnt get married until I was finished, but when I mentioned that we would probably wait until I was out of school for financial resons etc he was kind of like oh.. well maybe I guess… I know he couldn’t afford a ring yet because he is looking to buy a house, which definitely comes first right now, but he has asked about what kind of rings I like etc several times.
I was just curious how long after talking about marriage did your SO propose?

Well me and my now Fiance have been dating since junior year hs we are now seniors in college he proposed on Monday! We talked marriage about 2 years go for the first time but in the last year those talks increased so I want to say two years

We probably talked about it for a little over a year before he officially asked me. We started seriously talking about rings about 6 months before he proposed, I couldn’t tell then but he was really looking hard and doing a lot of research. It felt like forever but it was perfect and really worth the wait.

we started talking about it 2 years into our relationship, and he proposed a few months before our 4th anniversary, so I’d say for almost 2 years. I was still in school though, so he waited until I was out and then some.

We starting dating in high school. This summer I brought it up for the first time, just to kinda see where he was at. He said he planned to do it next winter (so like this Dec) and that was fine with me. Well two months after that talk we went ring shopping to just look, ending up falling in love with one and he bought it that day. He proposed two months after that. So definitely weren’t planning on that early, but it worked and I couldn’t be happier! I have one year of undergrad left and two years of grad school, so I’m in a similar situation as you.

We spoke about marriage about 3 years before we got engaged. We knew that we both wanted it, but that we wanted to wait until we were older and had been dating for a good few years.

About a month? It was quick. We married 11 months and 6 days after the day we met.

We started dating at 20, and new marriage wasn’t in the cards to years to come, but we talked hypothetically (being together forever) before our 1st year. Slowly we’ve talked more and more seriously about it. It’s been almost 1 year since we’ve actually turned “someday” into “someday soon” almost 6 years together

Well, we talked about it, we took two days to decide if we were sure we’d get married, and then we started ring shopping, which took about a month, and then it took another month and a half for the ring to get made… so like two and a half months, but it was a done deal after two days, really.

I have been with my guy for 8 years. I am 53 he is 61. We both were in long time 1st marriages over 25 years.
in the eight years we have been together we talked of marriage one time about 3 years ago. Both of us said never again. We were just fine the way we were.
Christmas morning he proposed. I said yes.

We STARTED talking about it in serious terms about 6 months ago and we have another 6-9 months or so until we plan on being engaged so I say about a year to a year and a half

My Fiance and I met online and we never talked about marriage. He asked me to marry him 2 months later. I was shocked not because he asked me but because I felt the same way but was afraid that I would scare him away if I told him how I felt. When he asked me to marry him he confessed he knew he wanted to marry me after our first conversation.
It has been a year now and we were supposee to get married 9/13 but we had to postpone due to his military tour in Afghainstan being extended.

We started dating at 38 and 39. At the 10 month mark I had a lease ending 8 months later, so it was brought up. I had to figure out if I wanted to get married in general. We talked for a few weeks, but decided to stop talking about it until after the NY, which was 2 months away. We talked about in Jan, I started planning and putting deposits down in Feb/Mar, he proposed in April. So about 6 months from the time we started talking until we officially got engaged. (Only 3-4 months from when I started planning)
