We have been together for 11 years. He popped the question the day before our 10th anniversary. It may seem like a long time, but we started dating when we were 14 (high school Sweethearts!)  We are 24 and 25 now, getting hitched in August. From Canada.

  • Wedding: February 2012

We were “boyfriend” and “girlfriend” for 7 & a half years before becoming betrothed. He was 29 at the time (still is), and I was 25 (now 26). He will be 30 when we get married, and I will still be 26! He is from San Diego, California and I am from Cape Town, South Africa. The latter being the place we got engaged and the place where we are to become husband and wife πŸ˜€

We were together a year and a half before he proposed (I was ready about 6 months before that), and we got married at a little over 2 years.  He’s from TN, I’m from NC and we met and live in SC.  I’m 25 and he’s 27.

together 6.5 years at proposal

8 years together almost on the dot! for our wedding

 

met at 18 and 19 years old

We will be 26 and 27 when we get married

***It still blows my mind how generally on the coasts, being married at 26 is “TOO YOUNG!” and in the midwest we always get, “WOAH, what took you so long! why don’t you have kids yet?!”     So I always thought we were compromising :/

We grew up in the Midwest, just outside St. Louis, MO  but this is NOT common for our area at all. We’re not the norm by any means.

We had been together almost 7 months when he proposed, ages 28 & 29. We will have been together a little more than a year and a half when we get married. Both of us are from Oregon.

 

Happy planning Bees!

It’s a bit complex for me, I worked with my Fiance from December 2005, we danced together at my 18th in Sept 06 which sparked rumours, but we didn’t start dating until Jan 08, and got engaged Feb 10, so technically speaking, for us..give or take a few days, 5 years and a month.
