Fi and I were together 2 years 4 months when we got engaged. We will be engaged just shy of a year. By the time we are married we would have been together for 3 years and couple of months.

We were together 2.5 years but best friends for 6 years before we got engaged. As of right now (only been engaged 1 week), we are planning to have close to a 2 year engagement!

We moved in together around the 1.5 yr mark, bought a house together around the 4 year mark, and then got engaged around the 4.5 year mark!


We are getting married after a 1.5 yr engagement!


we got a whole bunch of, “when are you getting married?” questions before we were engaged, and then a whole bunch of, “Why is your wedding so far away??” after we got engaged. Hahaha, and now it feels like it’s just around the corner!!

We had been dating for 2 years and 2 months before we got engaged. I straight up said that I wanted to be engaged around 3-4 years, not longer. I had a bad experience waiting on a man over the 4 year mark to make a move. I finally cut the strings on that one and found a guy willing to put a ring on it when the time was right.

To be honest, 2 years seems like enough time. We’ve lived together for about 7 months before getting engaged and we’ve gone through enough emotional and health issues for us to understand what we are getting in to during hard times.

Our engagement is 21 months. It’s mainly financials (we’re paying for the wedding ourselves and are looking at a 20K price tag) and that every place we’d like to get married is booked solid for 2012. Oh, and I’m currently in school in addition to working full time. There just isn’t enough time to plan and get it done on a short schedule!

We were actually only dating for about three months. We met in March, started dating a week later, I moved in with him in June, and he proposed on the 4th of July. By the time our wedding arrives we will have been engaged for a year and a month.
