WOAH these answers are so much shorter than I imagined!!! I don’t think I could marry someone I had known less than a year at least but would be more comfortable at 5 years +. I’ve been with my fiance for yonks because we met at 18 but even if I met someone once I was older, I would want to wait to get to know them better before comitting to something so serious.

Got engaged at our 8 year anno overseas. I wouldnt say we dated for 8 years as we lived together for 7 years at this point. Felt like we have been a married couple all along. Together almost 11 years now 😍

He proposed after 4 months but I didn’t accept until we’d been dating for 11 months.

We are an older couple (I’m late 30s) but I’m not sure that’s much of an influence on me. I was engaged before in my mid-20s and we’d dated for 5.5 years before getting engaged, but that was too long a wait for me and caused significant stress. If he’d have asked, I’d have said yes much sooner.

We were together just over 2.5 years when he proposed and will be together just over 4 years when we marry. We are late 20s/early 30s. We moved in together about 6 months in (life Justin happened that way, it was a bit soon but it worked for us) and we started talking marriage after about 1.5 years but were initially going to wait until he finished school. His plans changed to involve a longer education plan and waiting another 2-3 years for the proposal wasn’t going to happen so we are going for a longish engagement. We really just want to be married and settled so by the time he’s done we can start TTC.

5 years. It was right for us. Dated for 3 years before moving in together(after he got his degree). Our engagement is one year so we will have been together for 6 years when we get married!

It was almost our 3 year dating anniversary.  We started living together 1.5 years after we met.  We’ll be nearly 5 years before we get married.

9 months together before getting engaged but knew each other a little over a year before we started dating. We’re both in our mid 30’s.
