    TEN years!! He proposed on our decade anniversary. 

    However, we did get together when I was 14, so I got engaged at 24, which doesnt sound as crazy as it being 10 years!

    MissMfutureMrsB:  When you say 4th “dating anniversarry” do you mean 4 dates or 4 months dating or 4 years dating?

    Engaged at almost 9 years and we’ll be getting married a few months after our 10th anniversary! I love saying that,  it makes me proud that we’ll have been together a decade already when we get married and I look forward to many more happy decades ahead of us πŸ™‚

    We were dating just under 2 1/2 years when we got engaged. We had known each other for a year before we started dating.  Originally we were have a just under 2 1/2 year engagement but due to personal reasons we are now having an alomst 3 1/2 year engagement.

    Soon_To_Be_Mrs_T:  I know this post is a year old and it is in 20 something and I am 30 something but I just had to say, I got engaged to my first husband after dating serious for 3 years and my current Fiance (after starting to date seriously) for just 6 months. Granted we had known each for 3 years and had a daughter together, but we were not in a commited relationship that whole time.

    So, to prove OP’s point, that is not always true at all. Plus you have to factor in people who met in their teens that are only thinking about their horomones and drinking, not necessarily commitment.

    Oh, ages…I forgot. The first time I was 20 & this time I am currently 35. Now, granted we have been engaged for 5 years, but that was not the question.
