We were together just under 6 years before we got engaged, and 6 and a half years before we got married! We did start dating prety young so i guess thats why it took long for him to propose! haha

wantingafuture:  We started out as friends with benefits so it’s a lil murky. We eventually just decided on the holiday weekend we actually got serious about a relationship. So we were together for 8 years by the time we got married, and had been living together (following a cross-country move) for 4/5 years… Just celebrated 10 years together this january!

I was just thinking about this yesterday! We got engaged 2.5 yrs after we started dating and got maried 8.5 mos later. So, we actually celebrated our 3 year anniversary a month before the wedding.

The most intersting part of this thread is how everyone describes time.

Like, it is a really direct question that can be answered very straight-forward. We were together X length of time when we got engaged and X length of time when we got married or will be X length of time when we get married. Elaborate as you see fit on the gray areas of friendship or nonexclusive dating or whatever is meaningful to you and your SO.

But there are lots of skipping the first part or dodging parts of it, like “will be almost X time.” No one cares if you got engaged three weeks after you met or whatever, but why not own that?

We got engaged after being together one year, one month.

We will be engaged probably 8-10 months before we are married.

wonderlily:  My answer looks like what you’ve quoted so I’ll respond… OP actually didn’t ask how long until people were together before they got engaged. Only how long until they got/will get married. But if anyone cares, we moved in together after 5 months, got engaged after 11 months, and will be getting married a little more than 1 year and 9 months after we met…which is almost 2 years πŸ™‚

wantingafuture:  5 1/2 years.  We met in college, dated all throughout, got engaged just before our final semester, then bought a house about 7 months after graduation and got married a year or so after that.
