We were together 6 years before we tied the knot.  I think if we had been more well off financially we would have done it a couple years sooner.

We dated for 1 1/2 years before getting engaged, then we married a year later.  I was 19 when we met and he was 20.  I knew he was the one around 6 months though.  We also wanted to marry before moving to grad school, so the timing was right for us.

We will have been together a few months (read: 2) shy of 4 years on our wedding day. We met when I was 18 and he was 20. We dated for almost 3 years when he proposed – 2 years and 7 months.

J and I have been together for almost 1-1/2 years (he proposed on Christmas Eve).  We plan to get married in October 2012.  Our anniversary is in September so the total amount of years will be 3 by that time.  I will be 24 and he will be 29.

2 1/2 years. We are young (I’ll be 22 in March, he’ll be 23 in Feb.), but my belief is that you don’t have to have a house to get married. We’re totally fine with apartment life!

@Love_Dessa: That’s definitely our goal, but we didn’t want to put off getting married over something material (a house is important, but it’s still a material object). Since we’re not planning on having kids, that frees up a ton of funds for us–we’re not obligated to save for prenatal or a kid’s college fund, so we can put our money toward a nice house. 🙂

We have known each other since we were 10 years old, he was my first “boyfriend”. We dated for 4 years after high school, broke up but stayed “friends” and he moved away for 3 years. We’ve been a couple again now for 2 more years.
