    H and I got engaged after a year and a half of dating and had almost a year long engagement. We got married exactly two years and five months after we started exclusively dating.

    We started going out November 2009, got engaged December 31st 2012 and getting married October 2014. So our relationship has lasted most of our 20’s! We definitely haven’t rushed things, and had both finished with Uni and were working before we got engaged.

    He proposed 2 months shy of us dating for 5 years and we got married about two and a half weeks before our 6th year anniversary. I knew him about 4-5 years prior to us dating. So I’ve been with him a total of 12 years if I combine all the time I’ve known him. πŸ™‚

    My Fiance proposed about a week shy of our 1 year. I’m 25 and he’s 29… so I don’t feel like we’re that young.

    I’ve known my Fiance for 5 years (online/political friends), but dated for a year (long distance) before getting engaged.  We both knew it was something special from the start!  We are planning a 1.5-2yr engagement, so he can finish his PhD program and I can finish my MPH program.

    We dated for 5.5 years before he proposed. We moved in together after two years, and then bought a home together 3 years later. Shortly after we moved into our forever home, he proposed. We started dating at 17/18 though, so getting engaged at 23/24 was totally fine for us. We get married next month (!!!!) and will have been together a total of just over 7 years.

    He has been proposing since about three months into the relationship but on our 4 year anniversary he had a ring to go with the proposal so that was the time I officially said yes πŸ™‚
