@alohakay:  We dated for a little over a year and a half before we got engaged….I was 23 and he was 27. We had been living together for 10 months when he proposed. By the time we get married in October we will have been together almost 3 years and I will be 24 (almost 25) and he will be 28.

I was just shy of turning 25 when we got engaged and he was almost 26. We started dating when I was 17, so we were together about 8 years.

We dated 9 months, and have now been together 2.5 years, we were 21 & 22 when we got engaged, but aren’t getting married for another year +

So we got engaged fast but are having a long engagement

We met when he was 15 and I was 16.  We were both 18 when we started dating.  When we get engaged (sometime in the next couple months, once we gets a job- this is not speculation, he has confirmed this!) I’ll be 22 (unless it’s really early January) and he’ll be 21.  We’ll both be 22 on the date I’ve got picked out (our 4 year anniversary!)

We have been courting almost nine months and hopefully will be engaged in at least two months. But we’ve known each other a year and have a very deep commitment to each other. I don’t really care if people say stuff, love has no timeline.

@alohakay:  I was 21 and he was 29 when we got engaged. Now we’re married and I’m 23, he’s 31. 

I wouldn’t worry about age just because of the number itself. There is no magic age where suddenly you’re old enough to be married. If you are happy with what you’ve accomplished in life and can see marriage as only making things better now, you’re ready. If you feel like you still have things you want to do before making such a big commitment, then maybe just have a longer engagement.

I was 25 and he was 30.  we’ve been together for 4 years.  FI was ready to get engaged years before I was, but he waited for me.  I think the right guy will wait for you.
