We had our first date at the end of May and got engaged the following February. So about 9 months of dating before we got engaged. Then we were engaged for 18 months.

My Fiance proposed after a year and a half at dating and 8 months of living together. We had been friends for almost 2 years before we started dating, we will have been engaged for almost 3 years when the big day comes.

Together 5 1/2 years before engagement. Lived together for only 3 months before he proposed, but we had been talking about a future together in general for some time before that, and marriage specifically for about a year.

We’ve been together for 6 1/2 years total now (we’re a year into our 17.5 month engagement).

When we get married in September, we’ll have been together for nearly 7 years. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Just right for us.

10 months in college, I moved away for graduate school for 3 years, came back, and dated again for just under 2 years before getting engaged. 

When you know, you KNOW!

5 years of dating and 2 year engagement. We were young when we started dating (teens), so a longer period was comfortable. Had I been in my 30s I might not have wanted to wait so long! 

Our wedding day on June 1st will mark exactly 7 years together.

Dated a year and engaged 2 weeks. We couldn’t wait to spend our lives together! But we had been good friends for 3 years. We had a civil marriage since it was all so quick.  And this last year we had the fairytale wedding of our dreams. We’re about to reach our 3 year anniversary!
