    I put “1 to 2 years”. We’ve been together for 3 1/2 years but I didn’t consider myself seriously ‘Waiting’ til we’d been together about a year and a half/ 2 years. Hopefully I won’t be waiting too much longer! (2015 sometime)

    brixton:  We got together when I was 14 and he was 16. When I turned 18 he said he wanted to marry me, but after college. (never tell an 18 year old girl you want to marry them and then say AFTER college). Well the ring was picked out 6 months ago and already paid for now. I am turning 20 in three weeks and graduating in May. It is killing me not knowing if it will happen around my bday or that he may wait until May to put it on my finger.

    I recently got engaged but I was waiting for about 2 years by the time we got engaged. 

    I know a lot of people have different views of when waiting actually starts but waiting for me started when we had ouR first conversation about marriage. It was then that he asked for my time and my patience so I think that was when the waiting began and when I went through the ups and downs of waiting. I didnt know that’s what i was doing until I joined the bee. 

    when he proposed I didn’t know he even had a ring.

    SO and I got together because we already loved each other from being friends for so long and knew we wanted to get married, so I’ve been waiting for our entire relationship (Just over two years). I knew it would be a wait because he was between jobs at the time, but now we’re in a much better place, no longer long distance, and have looked at rings. Fingers crossed for 2015!

    I waited about 2.5 years from when we had first really established we’d get married, and talked about rings.

    We had a lot of “life” go on in between; we bought a house, he went through a career change, travelling, etc. So we’ve had the marriage-level commitment going on for a while, and we had conversations along the way. It still sucked at times 😉

    It was literally love at first sight for both of us. I was ready the first year, he was not. We’ve discussed it and decided we would wait until we met some of our personal goals. 3.5 years together, but I voted for waiting 2 + years, because when you know, you know. “When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with someone, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible” – When Harry Met Sally – favorite movie ..

    January 30th will be our 10th dating anniversary so I definitely fall into the 2 PLUS years category. :p We didn’t really consider engagement/marriage our first six or so years because we were young, still in school, and weren’t financially ready to get married. But now that I’m going to finish grad school in May, a proposal can’t come fast enough!! He’s been hinting at something that will happen at the end of this month.. so my fingers are crossed! 🙂

    I’d say I’ve been truly “waiting” 2 or 3 months at this point. We agreed that we would be moving toward marriage when I moved in with him, about a year and a half ago, but neither of us were really ready then. We began talking more seriously about it about 6 months ago or so and decided on a timeline of sorts about a month or two ago. So… yeah. That.

    I mean, the waiting thing is a little weird to me, and I kind of hate it being on his time (which I have made clear, thus the timeline the stages of waiting. ha) but I do know that due to his traditional sensibilities about some things, while we have decided on many things together, the actual, official asking will be how (and to a certain degree, when) he wants it to be. So, in that regard I’m waiting for the actual popping of said question, but we have agreed that it’s what we want, so I’m not waiting for his commitment or decision at all. Now if only I always felt this patient about it all!

    I put 1-2 years. We picked out the ring and he put the deposit down 18 months ago. But, he had knee surgery and was off work for a few months and then I had my own health issues and have been off work. I just found out he has the ring though, so hopefully I won’t be waiting much longer!
