    We dated for 14.5 months, which is pretty short!

    We originally planned for a long, almost 2 year engagement… Then life changed (no, I’m not pregnant…), and we had a great window to move the wedding up by a year and save almost 10K on the wedding!

    So we said “Okay, let’s do this!” and planned our ENTIRE wedding in December/January, with our date being in May!

    Originally I said I wanted to date for 2-3 years before getting engaged, with an 18 month MINIMUM… But he bought my ring on tax free date and couldn’t wait that long!

    We were both really ready, though.

    We’d been dating a little over two years and living together for one. Our relationship moved fast but it felt right. Been good so far 🙂

    2 years and three months, then a fairly long engagement (so by the time we get married we will have been together 4 years, 2 months). I was 22 and he was 29 when he proposed.
