A little over 5 years. I was 25 and he was 26 (I was a few weeks shy of turning 26). We had discussed years before that I wanted to wait and finish my Masters program before we got married.

We dated for a little over a year before getting engaged. We were late 20s/early 30s.

I also got engaged almost 3 years into our relationship, and we’ll be getting married exactly 4 years after we met in person (after knowing each other online for over a decade). We were 28 and 29 when we got engaged and will be 29 and 30 when we get married next month. ๐Ÿ™‚

7 and a half years, almost to the day.  We had discussed it several times starting at around 5 years but we were not, and still aren’t, in any hurry.  We’ve lived together for 3 years and already feel married anyway.

We set the wedding date after about 3 months and he officially proposed (that was important to him) 5 months into dating. We moved really quick, but it worked for us.
