just under three months. we met on february 29 of last year, and he proposed under unusual circumstances on may 28. he proposed again on june 3 to be sure i knew he meant it. he moved in at the beginning of july, and we got married last month, a couple weeks shy of 15 months after we met. so far, bliss.

We dated for 10 months before getting engaged and will be married in August after being together for one year and 7 months! I’m 28 and he’s 38. Sometimes it seems crazy when I think about how much has changed since we met in January of 2016, but we just both knew that it was right.

14 months dating, and 8 months living together (really it was more like 10, but 8 months officially). We were 30 and 29 when we got engaged.

It was a LOT faster than I normally move in relationships. I’d dated someone for 2 years just before that that I didn’t even discuss living with, and he’d just dated someone for 6 years who was pushing for marriage, but he never felt ‘ready’. I always thought that the ‘when you know you know’ thing was idealistic, but life sure showed me haha. We actually started talking about marriage after 2 months, but I told him we had to wait at least a year.

bridetobespring2018 :  my husband and I were together for 2 years before we were married we were not engaged really as he never actually got sown on bended knee and asked me..

It was something we had discussed and decided to so 😉

We probably would have married a year earlier but couldn’t  because I was not 18 yet lol..

But we are still chugging along we have made it though the death of one of our children and we also have a special needs son and 2 other crazy boys..

17 years now♡♡

Well… I didn’t read all the comments, but I’m probably one of the fastest. LOL  My husband proposed on day 3 after meeting me and then when we said we should probably slow it down… he waited to day seven after we met.  I said yes.  We got married 6 months after we met.  19 yrs later…. and many people proven wrong… HERE we are, very happy, 3 kids, 2 dogs and livin’ the dream.  Ha.

I just got engaged this past weekend! I’m so excited! I’m 30, he’s 32, we’ve been together for 4 1/2 years and living together for about 3 of them. We’ll probably be married Fall 2018.

You guys are going to think I’m crazy.  We got engaged after dating for 10 months….in which we were only in each other’s presence for about a week.  It literally went like this:  first date on a Monday, second date on a Tuesday, then Wednesday he went back to Iraq for 10 more months.  He got back and a week later we were engaged.  Seems to be working out for us though.  Still married almost 8 years later!

A little over 2.5 years – it would of been sooner. We both knew before our 1 year and would of gotten engaged at 1.5 years. However, he moved from Ohio so was getting himself settled in California. We both wanted to be fully established before taking that step.
