We had been together for 1 year and 4 months when we got engaged.  Our engagement lasted 11 months.  When I put it down in writing like that, it looks like it all happened quite quickly!  However, I’m 30, DH is 27, and I’d moved across the country to live with him after 8 months in a LDR.  I guess when you know, you know!

we’ve been friends for about 7 years. He asked me to marry him after we were together for a week! I told him if he really meant it he should ask “the proper way”. Took him another 2 month to do so. We will be engaged 22 month though.

We were together 8 months when he proposed, have a 14 month engagement and we will be together almost two years when we are married.  Disclaimer*  We are both 42 and it will be a second marriage for both, so at this stage of the game, you tend to know immediately what you want and don’t want in a partner.  It was pretty clear from the start that we were both made for eachother!

With my first husband (yes, i’ve been married before… i was 19 and we met online) we were together for 5 or 6 weeks before he proposed and our engagement was 4 & 1/2 weeks long. yeah… obviously i regret that.

This time my fiance and i were together for 5 months before getting engaged and our engagement will last 7 more months. a little better, i think! oh, and we’ve been living together this whole time and we’re best friends so im 100% sure that we’re gonna work out πŸ™‚

Fiance and I had our first date Thanksgiving of 2010.  We got engaged October 2011.  We will be engaged 9 months.

This is my second marriage, and Fiance was in a 5 year relationship prior to ours.  Given being long distance, and all we have been through in a year, we just knew we wanted to be together forever.

We got legally married 1 year later and had the wedding 9 months later..now we’re pregnant with our first baby. πŸ™‚

We did things our own ways that worked for us. πŸ™‚

We first met at a bar through mutual friends when we were both dating other people. My good friend was his roommate, so after that I hung out at this apt (now our apt!) alllll the time, I lived very far from school at the time so I was always spending the night so I’d have a shorter commute, and he would give me his clothes to sleep in. He was always very hospitable and sweet. We started dating a year and a half after we met, I moved in 2 years after we started dating, and we got engaged after dating for 4 years 3 months. Our engagement will be for 2 years 3 months πŸ™‚
