    • Wedding: February 2015

    My fiance and I have been dating for five years when he proposed! However, we’re young – 23 and 22 – and we knew we wanted to get married by year two, but we decided to wait because he wanted to be independent from his parents by having his career set after graduating from college and be debt-free – very understandable timeline! It was difficult at times because we watched friends who weren’t together as long get married and some even have babies, but we’re definitely happy with our decision because now we’re getting married and enjoying evey minute of our engagement & this happy time! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We were friends for a while beforehand, but we dated for exactly 6 months when Fiance proposed.  We will be getting married just over a year and two months after our “official” date of togetherness, though we dated for almost half a year before getting together officially.

    I am not engaged yet, but my partner and I will have been together for 6 years in March. We’re waiting for the big changes first – moving into our first home, both in stables jobs, etc. So I’m thinking it’ll be 7-8 years before the proposal comes and another 6-12 months after that until a (very small) wedding!

    She first brought it up at 11 months in, and proposed a couple weeks after our first anniversary. We’ll have been together just over 3 years when we get married. It probably wasn’t the most “logical” timing (she’s not done school ’til this August and I may still go for a Masters) but it feels right, so we’re running with it ๐Ÿ™‚

    spinster32:  Dear Spinster,

    If you’ve been with a man for 7 years and he hasn’t married you, I think it’s long past time to have moved on. If a man wants to get married…he does… Waiting more than a year in my opinion can be a mistake.
