Close to two months after our 4th dating anniversary. I was 17 and he was 19 when we started dating. He’s 24 in a few days and I am 21. He graduates in May and I graduate next May. Hopefully married by June 2019. So we’ll have been together for almost 5 and a half years when we marry. ๐Ÿ˜Š

We met late summer 2014, started dating in fall. Engagement was Christmas eve 2017, so a little more than 3 years. We will have been together for just over 4 years when we get married.

Just over four years. We have been best friends since we were 18, started dating when we were 23, knew we were going to marry each other within the first few days of dating but waited. We wanted life to settle into a place where getting engaged would mark a transition into the next stage of life for both of us, so we waited until after we’d both graduated from grad school and had settled down a little bit.

My husband and I dated for a year and two months. We had lived together for 9 months at that point, and had to do long distance for a bit when we got engaged. We got engaged over a weekend when he came up to visit me where I was studying at the time. I realize some may think we did things pretty quickly but everybody has a different pace ๐Ÿ™‚

We knew each other for 4 years, but were physically dating for only two. We knew right away that we wanted to marry each other (once he convinced me to actually date him – haha I was stubborn), and we just sealed the deal pretty quick XD

We met on tinder in October 2017, in December on New Years eve he asked me and my two year old to move into this house (he’s 30 and I’m 27). He has no children and has never been married but he’s stable (good paying career, owns his home) so he’s ready for a family

he already calls my son “our son”. It’s very sweet. We are moving into his house in July when my apartment lease is  up!!

Anyways he just purchased my ring and it will be in his possession on March 26.  So I’m not exactly sure when but I’m assuming it will be before our one year anniversary which is in October

It will by 2 1/2 years by the time we get the rings, they’re ordered and I plan to ask her next month. We moved in due to work circumstances (she lived 50 miles away and I got a new job in her city by chance, so it made sense) after only a few months, so we’ve been living together for 2 years. I’m 28 and she’s 29.

Depends what way you look at it. We’ve known each other since school – best friends. Dated in our early 20s. Can’t tell you why we broke up as we just think we were young and stupid! Biggest regret but who knows, if we stayed together we might not be getting married. Who knows!! Things happen for a reason.

We broke up and still spoke every day. I couldn’t shake him or move on. Fate I guess.

Been back together 4.5 years and everyday with my best friend is amazing. Getting married in 3 weeks 

Only known him 17 years. He used to call me every day after school before I even had a cell phone!!
