We just did a study discussing how long women date before they get emgaged. The results were very interesting. For example, “Brides who were engaged at the age of 20 or younger are likely to date the shortest amount of time before getting engaged (29 months, or 2.42 years). On the other hand, brides who were engaged at the age of 35 or older dated an average of 40 months, or 3.33 years.” There are a lot of factors that play into the results – such as age and location. Here is the article with full results [link removed per self promotion policy]

We dated for 4 years and got engaged.  We got married 15 months later (but only because we could not find an opening with our venue of choice sooner).
