sandybeach :  I love this! Pretty much the same with me and my fiance. We’re eloping this coming August. It meant a lot to our parents to have *something* – so just a cute B&B type of elopement. It’ll be beautiful and simple!

  • Wedding: August 2018 - Location

7 years, started dating at the beginning of university. We wanted to finish all our degrees (3) and be settled in good jobs first. 

I would not wait more than 3 years if it was someone I met beyond 25 years old, for perspective.

We just got engaged and have been together about 6.5 years. We are college sweethearts and met 8.5 years ago. Although, we didn’t begin dating until 2 years later, we were romantically involved during that time (no where close to dating). We will be together 8 years when we get married!

We’ll be together for 2 years this June. We are talking about engagement soon, so maybe within 2-3 years.
