We were together 5 years before getting engaged and we were given a hard time about it because we dated too long. The only reason we even got engaged was because we won a honeymoon 😂.

We were together for 1.5 years before getting engaged! Many people thought that was really soon, but we had a longer engagement and already bought a house together! I think it depends on the couple but I wouldn’t worry about what people think!

We’ve been together a bit over two years.  I’m fairly positive we’ll be engaged before our third anniversary.  We’ve known for a while that we want to get  married, but neither of us feel particularly rushed.

A little over 3 years…we had known each other for 3 year before that. We’ll have been engaged an additional year and a half before we get married in May.

Almost 7 years here! Everyone’s relationship is different.

We were together under 10.5 months I think (met mid August, engaged end of June. Married just over a year later in September.) No one gave us a hard time because anyone who knew us enough to judge knew it was always going to happen and I believe everyone important supported us; we didn’t hear a single negative comment (not to say there definitely weren’t any, but no one said anything serious enough to get back to us anyway. :))

8 months. We were married the next month. No one gave us any shit over it, not that I would’ve listened anyway.

8 years. We also got a hard time about waiting so long, at least from the LDS parts of my family.

missskay24:  We’ll be together going on 8yrs when we get married and were together going on 7 when he proposed!  I was wondering if he was EVER going to ask, even though I knew that was the plan.

Just over 3 years for me! We moved in together after dating for 2 years and got engaged about a year after that. We are having a 2 year engagement though…so we will be together for just over 5 years by the time we actually get married 🙂

Two years, but with the agreement that we wouldn’t get married for AT LEAST another three (we got engaged under extenuating circumstances, I didn’t want to even get engaged for another 3 or 4). I would never ever marry someone on hadn’t been with for a minimum of five years.
