We’d been a couple 7+ years when he proposed, but we’d known eachother over a decade.

Started talking engagement/marriage a couple years in, around the time we were graduating college and figuring out grad school.

He proposed after we’d been together about 2.5 years, we got married at 4 years 3 months. We were 28 (me) and 25 (him) when we got engaged. I’m 17.5 weeks pregnant with our first baby now, who’s due just before my 31st birthday!

We started talking about marriage 6-9 months in … only in passing. We got serious about it 1 1/2 years in, and he proposed right after our 2 year anniversary. We were married at a little over 2 1/2 years.

We’d been officially dating for about 6 months before he proposed. Before that we’d been chatting/getting to know one another about 4 months. We never really looked at rings together, and the subject of marriage just sort of organically happened as opposed to having an official “talk” about it. After he proposed it took us a little over another year before we were married.

We will be getting engaged around our 2 year anniversary, this fall.  We don’t want any sort of waiting or secrets or anything, so it won’t be a surprise.  We are shopping for rings now and saving money for a wedding.  We will probably get married less than a year after.  We have been talking about it since 6 months in. We are older…30’s.

We were more or less living together from about the 6 month mark and had talks about marriage etc quite early on. He proposed after being together 20 months.

We discussed that we both wanted the same things like marriage and a forever relationship right out the gate. Moved in together about 5 months in to the relationship. Serious marriage talk started around six months. Proposal was just over a year in to the relationship. When we get married we will have been together for 2 years 3 months.

Friends for two years, and we’ve been dating just over a year and just picked my ring together. (Waiting for the proposal, but our venue is booked because they filled up VERY fast.) but I believe it’s coming soon!
