  • Wedding: June 2008

We dated for a year and a half before getting engaged, and our engagement will be just over a year (1 year and 1 week).

When we started talking about getting married, I told my mom who told my brother who said, "That’s totally not going to happen." Proved him wrong!

  • Wedding: April 2008

Chatted online starting July 2002 or so. 
Met Feb 21, 2003 in "person" as friends ONLY!
Started "dating" in March.
Officially a couple April 5th, 2003.
Met his parents in May that year.
Then he went to Kuwait for 90 days (Air Force Reservist). Since I waited for him, he said he knew I was "the" one.
Moved in together that August.
Asked me to marry him for the first time Sept 10, 2003.
Lived together for two years… (everyone has ups and downs) & I wouldn’t get married until I was done with college.
Lived apart for a year. Then I graduated college & moved to TN for a year to take care of my mom & he moved to FL to go to the police academy & live with his folks.

Moved to FL April 2006.
Asked me to marry him again (with a ring this time!) Feb 2007.
Set date in Julyish 2007
Married April 5th, 2008.

So yeah. We dated five years to the date before getting married.

But honestly. It was worth the wait.

  • Wedding: July 2008

I think I’m the longest out of everyone, I was very patient to wait to be engaged.  It took us over 12 years of dating before we got engaged on 05.07.08!  This year is our 13th year of being a couple! YES HighSchool Sweethearts – dated all the way through college and now! Our big day is 07.05.08!

We were dating 5 1/2 years before we got engaged. We have a 9 month engagement. So when the big day finally comes we would have been together 6 years. It all goes by so quickly!
