  • Wedding: December 2016

We dated for a year and a half. Got married a month after our 2nd anniversary. We are both older, so it seemed like plenty of time for us.

6+ years dating, engaged for 2.5 years. We started dating during my first year of college and then had to focus on starting careers. Now that buying a house and starting a family might be the next steps, we’re getting married.

Just over 8 years but that’s not exactly typical in my circle of friends lol. Started dating when I was 18, got engaged on my 27th birthday and we will get married 26 days after our 9th anniversary

  • Wedding: July 2011

We met early August 2010, started dating late August (I was out of town most of the month), he proposed early November, spent all the holidays with my family (4 hours away), we got married early July 2011. So when we went back to the place we met to have dinner and celebrate the one year anniversary of the day we met, we’d already been married 3 weeks😀

annann91 :  he proposed one year and 1.5 months from the day we met. After about a month in he told me he wanted to spend every day of his life with me. I was like “wait what?!”

7 long years.  but totally worth it.  he’s my best friend and we dont have any issue after getting married.  i felt some of my other friends who dated shorter than us and got married pretty quickly all end up with a lot of issues to deal with afterwards.

We dated just shy of 10 years but started dating in high school. We still got married pretty young at 26.

Met in 2010, got together 2 years later and moved in together after a month. Together 5 years and will be engaged for a year before we’re married. We moved around a lot in our first few years together, so probably would have married sooner if we’d been settled (Both 33).

We technically dated for 2 years or so, engaged for 6 years or so and married for 2 years now. We have been together since we were 19 so we weren’t in a rush to get married.
