    10 months, but we’d known each other for four year before that, and we’ve had a long engagement.

    We first meet January 2008, then we got together that summer – so it was almost 4 years until he proposed. We’ll get married just 5 years after we became a couple.

    About 4.5 years. We will have a short engagement and will be married 3 weeks shy of our 5 year dating anniversary.

    He ‘put a ring on it’ a little over a year after we met.

    We ‘dated’ for 3 weeks, became official, and within the next month were in love. It was somewhere between 2-3 months later that he asked me ‘if’ I would marry him…not a proposal, just asking…haha. Then I found out I was pregnant! He didn’t officially propose until about a month after she was born.

    @BrandNewBride:  This is kind of how me and my Fiance were. 

    I always told people I wouldn’t marry someone if I hadn’t been dating them for at least 6 years. Well after dating (“officaly”) for like 6 months, he asked me. Then I thought we’d have a long engagement, but it was only only like 16 months. 

    But it’s working out well for us so far 🙂

    • Wedding: October 2012

    DH and I met on the second day of our freshman year of high school in September 2004. We began dating six months later in March of 2005. After graduating high school in 2008, we moved from NJ to IN together to attend college. We got engaged in February of 2009, and were married on October 12, 2012 (exactly a week in between our 23rd birthdays). I am so thankful for all of the days we’ve spent together, and look forward to those that have yet to come.

    THEN (2005):

    NOW (2012):

    • Wedding: November 2013

    We made things “official” after we’d known each other for a short time (around 3-4 weeks).  This was in June 2007.

    We got engaged in November 2012.  We’d been dating for almost 5.5 years.  We were long distance for a little over 2 years in the beginning of our relationship, and we’ve been living together for 2 years now.

    I’m 28 and he’s 30 (I’ll be 29 and he’ll be 31 by the time our wedding date rolls around this November).
