3.5 months.  And we were basically living together in a dorm situation from like the second week!  TSK TSK!  Hahaha

BUUUT, we’re engaged for 2.5 years so it’ll be almost 3 years before we tie the knot, and right before we make 3 years we move together.

If you’re wondering about the average, this question has been posed many times on the bee so you might try searching, “How long were you dating” or “How long did you date” or something similar and taking a look at the responses in the many previous threads on the topic.  I think them most recent one is this: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/how-long-were-you-dating-before-you-got-engaged-1

 

If you’re just looking for recent posters’ responses, we were together for a year and four months.  We knew we’d get married about two months in though!
