17 months. I was 22 and he was 24. We had been living together for a year. It was fast and young for our area but it felt right, and today is our 3 year wedding anniversary ๐Ÿ™‚

bridetobespring2018 :  Well, me and my hubby dated 6 months before he proposed.  It took 14months to plan our wedding; so we were married in 20 months after dating.  A little less than 2yrs but were are people of a certain age group (over 40).

8 months. We met on our first date(blind date) and got engaged 8 months after we met and we were engaged for 4 months. We married exactly one year from the day we met. I was 20 and he was 23 when we got married. We have been married 11 years now.

So glad a friend set us up on that blind date.

We were together for almost 11 months before we got engaged, but are having a full 2 year engagement, and we will have been together for 2 days less than 3 years when we get married

We had dated for 7 years before getting engaged and our engagement is finally almost done with the wedding in October! We were high school sweethearts though so we were in no rush. We will have been together nearly ten years by the wedding and will be 26 and 24.

bridetobespring2018 :  I am 30 my fiance is 34. We are getting married in less than a month. I was proposed to when I was 29 and he was 33. We were together for 4 years. We lived together in an apartment for 2.  We did know each other as friends a few years before this because we work together in an office.

Fiance and I met at work (I was 21 at the time and he had just turned 29), we secretly had feelings for each other for 6 months before we started dating. We dated for 10 months and then got engaged, right before my 23rd birthday. We’ve been together for over 2 years now, still going strong โ˜บ

I like to say a little less than 2 years but really that’s only if you count it from the day we met. We didn’t become an official couple till maybe 3 months in, so it’s more like 1 and a half years. Met when I was 24. DH is 1.5 years older and was already established in his career and completely independent when we met, so that sped up our timeline a bit.
