erm… 7 weeks!!

BUT. We’d known each other for 10 years before dating… And were very close friends.

Most importantly… It wouldnt have mattered if it were 7 weeks or 7 minutes. I would have said yes! Ive always wanted him to be the one… 😉

We were dating almost 3 years when he proposed. You should add a poll to this post. It would be interesting to see the breakdown.

we were together about 6 months before he popped the question and it was totally unexpected when he did it.

2 weeks!  No kidding.  But.. officially… I didn’t consider making it official until 1 year… and even then… I wanted him to REALLY propose… so then he did in front of hundreds of people on stage- that was about a year and a half after we were together, 2 years after we had met.

Lol…I’m definitely in the minority here: 11 years & 10 months!  Grant you, until about the 11 years & 8 month mark, neither of us actually wanted to “get married” (I’m one of those “converted” brides who believed it was an antiquated ritual forced on women by society’s norms until she went to RCIA & learned about the SACRAMENT of marriage).  Once I told him “I think I’d like us to get married”, he went right out & bought the ring; proposal came two months later.

I’m in the minority here :-P. We’d only been dating for 5 months when he proposed, but we’d known each other for 2 1/2 years and knew from the beginning of the relationship that we were heading that direction (otherwise I wouldn’t have bothered with the relationship).

Almost 7 years and we’d been living together for 3.5 of them. I was never in a rush though because I’ve been in school the entire time we’ve been together.

We were together 6 years when he proposed! We were in college and getting established for quite a bit of that.
