We were dating for almost 2.5 years when he proposed, about 3 months after we moved in together. Our engagement is going to be about 22 months, because 2010 is insanely busy for us!

We had dated for just over 2 1/2 years when R proposed. We spent the first 9 months in a long distance relationship, then I (thankfully) moved back. We got engaged Jan of 2009 and are getting married on August 28, 2010.

We dated about 2 years before we got engaged and then we had a 3 year engagement!  I love that you two are having a longer engagement so that you can make sure that it is right!

We dated since middle school off and on…but we were living together for about 2 years before he proposed and our engagement is going to be 15 months.

We dated five years, our anniversary was 2 weeks before he proposed.  We will be engaged for 8 months by the time we get married in March.  Funny thing was he had always talked about having a long engagement and I would have liked a short one, when it really came to deciding he was the opposite, so that was a nice surprise.

My hubby and I have lived together since the day we met (long story but we basically started out as roommates) but he didn’t propose until we had been together for about 3.5 years.

no engagement yet but weve been dating about a year and three months. itll probably be another year or two before we get engaged. i want a longer engagement since im the type of person thats stressed easily and likes to plan everything out.

Dated for a year, we’ve been engaged for 1.5 years now. I was moving across the country for him, so I wanted a commitment.

We were together for 2 years and a few weeks before we got engaged.  We had a 3 month engagement!  I didn’t want a huge wedding, so it worked out great.  25 guests!

We dated 4 years before getting engaged, and our engagement will last 2 years before we’re married.
