@jnj2014:  We dated for 9 years and 8 days before he proposed. We got married 12 days before our 10 year anniversary.

Dating around 6 weeks when he proposed, eloped at around 12 weeks, and we will be celebrating 7 happy years in June 🙂 

I’m hoping to renew my vows at 8 years, so my Mom can see me get married(for the second time anyway).

@jnj2014:  we met in high school too.  We “dated” (lived together, owned a home, were life partners – not exactly dating) for 12 years (!) before he proposed.  But neither of us wanted to get married until 30ish, so I wasn’t “waiting” per se.

@Daizy914:  same here girl!  Luckily most of the people we know weren’t rude enough to say that to our faces, even if they thought it.

@Daizy914:  I feel the same way when people say something about how fast we did it. Uhm, because I didn’t feel like waiting to do something I knew was for life anyway? On the other side of that argument is, We know this is for life anyway, so why does it need to be a race?  It is amazing how people can have opinons on something that is SO PERSONAL. Like there is a one size fits all time line for marriage.

We dated for about 4 years 9 months before getting engaged, but the day we got engaged was the 10th anniversary of the day we met. We were friends for over 5 years before dating.

@Bridey77:  its so ridiculous….its a lose-lose situation bc its either too fast or it took too long! How about we do what works for us, you can mind your own business and stfu! LOL!

There was a guy DH worked with, and we happened to bump into him on the street, he was with his girlfriend (now ex gf)…she seemed a lil off to me…way too hyper and jumped right in with “hey im X, how long have you guys been together?” At the tkme i said 7 years…she said “and still no ring? Id be gone…im on the 5 year plan”…pls note DH was standing right next to me and heard the whole thing. I tugged on his hand and he got the hint to end the convo… I said to DH she is so lucky she is your coworkers gf! I would have knocked her f*****g head off! She is now an exgf bc 5 years came and didnt propose.
