We were together a year. I know it’s fast but we’re both kind of old souls and knew much sooner than that 🙂 We’ve had a long engagement though, so we’ve been together almost 3 years now.

Four years and two months (but who’s counting) 😉

Fiance started talking marriage about 3 months into the relationship. Scared the heck out of me, but in the end I was ready before he was (I would’ve liked to have gotten engaged a couple of years sooner).

By the time we get married, we’ll be just under the 5 year mark (living together for 3+).

a little under 6 years until proposal.

6.5 years when we get married.

we are actually getting married on memorial day weekend, which we treat as our official date-a-versary. (you know, you start dating, but it doesnt get serious for a few weeks or months?)

He proposed 3 months before our 2yr anni (after hinting that there was NO WAY he’s propose before we’d been together 2 years!), and we’ll be getting married exactly 1 yr and 1 wk after the proposal.

We dated just over 5 1/2 years. We’d been together since my sophomore year of high school and got engaged in my junior year of college.

It was a little over 4 years before he proposed, and we had been living together for 3 months at that time. We started dating when I was 19, and he was 21. 🙂

Well, I’m not sure we ever “dated” as such.  When we “met” online, NotFroofy lived in the UK and I lived in the US, so it wasn’t like I could invite her out for coffee.  However, she had quit her job and was in the process of selling her house, so she could use the proceeds to retrain for a new career.  She came for a week and a half visit.  I then suggested that she come and stay with me for the duration of the 6-month training course, so we could get to know each other better in real life.  So yeah, she really did move in on the second “date.”

We had been living together for nearly 8 years when we got engaged.  However, as a same-sex couple, we hadn’t been able to get married before that.
