Aw, that’s so cute! 

No short relationship here. We were together for 5 1/2 years before getting engaged. We were only 19 when we got engaged, but we still got a lot of “big surprise!” and “about time” comments. We both just knew early on that we’d find a way to stay together – it just took some convincing our poor parents when we were 16 and talking about how we’d get married someday. πŸ˜‰

Aww that is a sweet story πŸ™‚  My Fiance proposed on our 7 year anniversary.  It was a tad strange though, b/c it was a TOTAL surprise to ME, but everyone else was like “it’s about time!” lol.  We’re only 24 lol, I don’t know why everyone acts like we waited SOOO long

That is a cute story!  We were together 4 years before getting engaged and EVERYONE was saying “about time”! We had talked about marriage for a couple years, but I was not ready. After I gave him the “go ahead” he asked me not long after.

Just over 6 years for us (today’s our 7 year dating anniversary actually! =D ) and we definitely got the “about time” reaction!

We were together just 3 months, but we also knew right away.  I think everyone was a bit shocked, but we didn’t have any negative reactions.  We’re 32 & 33, and this is the 2nd time for both of us.  We know what we’re getting into, and we know what we want.

We were together for 9 years before we became officially engaged. However, in the meantime, we moved in together, purchased a home, combined finances, etc. Over the years, he would be ready and I wouldn’t be, then I would be and he wouldn’t be, and then we finally got on the same readiness page and made it official. We got a lot of “It’s about time!” comments.

We were together almost 6.5 years and we got some it’s about time comments, but a lot of people were really happy.

4 years and 11 months lol I wanted to get married 2 years in but we were relatively young so we “had” to wait I hate to admit it but from the moment I met him (blind date) I knew he was the one, even though I thought he was weird and shy at first I always knew I would stick around πŸ™‚

My fiance proposed on our 2-year anniversary! That was on August 1, 2008, so we will have been together for over four years when we get married. I’d say we knew very early on in the dating process that we wanted to get married, but we were in no rush and wanted to get a little further in our professional lives before becoming one entity!

We dated for 6 months before becoming engaged. We will be together two years and some days before we are married. πŸ™‚ That is wonderful everyone was so supportive. I actually got the opposite reaction of “already!” Lol!

We were good friends for 6 years before we started dating, and then dated for 4.5 years before we got engaged.  We actually didn’t get any “it’s about time” comments, but we’re 25 so maybe that’s why.  I’m among the oldest in my extended family so I don’t think my aunts and uncles are on the lookout for engagements yet πŸ™‚
