– How long have you been together 1.5 years

-How long have you been officially waiting? Only about a week now

-What do you consider waiting? Since we talked about our timeline for getting married.

-Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? No walk date. We would both like to get married in summer 2014, and we’re planning on having a wedding about a 9 hour drive from where we live. He knows that it’ll take me at least a year to plan the wedding, including a few trips to the weddding location to meet vendors, so I think a proposal is coming by this summer.

– Do you have children? Nope, but we have an adorable dog we rescued a few months ago

-Do you share finances? Separate accounts, but we split all our bills

How long have you been together: 2 years and 7 months

How long have you been officially waiting?: Since our two year anniversary when he bought up getting engaged and took me ring shoping.

What do you consider waiting? When you’re both ready to and want to get engaged and you’ve discussed it.

Do you have a timeline? walk date? other?: No!

Do you live together? Yes – for the past 2 years and 2 months (minus the 9 months we were in a LDR)

Do you have children?: No, children are a must for the both of us – once we’re married.

Do you share finances? A little, but it won’t be complete ‘ours’ till we’re married.

How long have you been together: 11 years

How long have you been officially waiting? 2 years

What do you consider waiting? From the time I told him marriage was important to me

Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? Honestly I really don’t know. There’s a niggling doubt in the back of my mind (which may or may not be true) that he just doesn’t want to marry me

Do you live together? Yes

Do you have children? No. I want them.

Do you share finances? No. From seeing what some of my friends are currently going through with their SO’s, I don’t think sharing finances is such a great idea. He’s a spender and I’m a saver.

How long have you been together: A few months short of 9 years 

How long have you been officially waiting? About 8 months, but we wet ring shopping in December! 

What do you consider waiting? From the first time we had a serious discussion about our future timeline & marriage 

Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? We have a timeline which is engaged by our 9th dating anniversary (this June) but no walk date! I’m here to stay. 

Do you live together? Nope. We won’t be living together for about another year. We both live at home for financial reasons. We’re both in our last years of uni and it makes more sense to save money!

Do you have children? Not for a while (hopefully). We do have one fur baby though! 

Do you share finances? Kind of? We have seperate bank accounts but our money goes from one to another so often for a number of reasons that its basically all our money.
