We were dating for 7 years before getting engaged. I am happy to see more bees have been together for many years beforehand, as well. πŸ™‚

4 1/2 months. I was so shocked I thought he was kidding, once he confirmed he was serious  all I could get out of my mouth was “uh -huh” lol It wasn’t planned at all, he just decided that morning he felt like asking me to marry him, so he did. We were still in bed and not dressed.  Never knew what to say when people asked me where he proposed.

When we were planning our 2nd wedding for our 15th anniversary, I came clean that I was actually disappionted that there was no ring or kneeling at the time he proposed. A lot of it was because I didn’t have a story I could tell people. Silly? maybe, but that’s how I felt. It was romantic in it’s own way, but I got tired of feeling strange when people asked. So he proposed all over again in a very romantic fashion at a spot that I loved, and he got on one knee and everything.  This is the story I tell people. πŸ˜‰

14.5 years πŸ˜ƒ we got together young though at 17 so we weren’t  in a rush. 

We wanted to get our college degrees and masters and save to buy a house first.

About 3.5 years. We met when I was 26 and he was 31. Just not a huge hurry to get married. We will be married on our 6 year anniversary.
