@MsTireSmoke:  Well my situation isn’t quite the same because my Fiance and I are in our early 30’s, but we are having a 19 month engagement which feels like forever to us.  All the other couples that I know that are recently married only waited about a year or so. 

But there is nothing wrong with long engagements.  You are certainly young to be a wife, however if you met the man that you are meant to be with for the rest of your life, then that’s all that matters.  In this day in age it is so hard to find the right person, and I envy you for finding him so young! 

Enjoy your engagement!  And think of how much better it sounds to say “my fiance” rather than “my boyfriend”  ya know.. Fiance makes it more official and permanent Wink.

I think everyone does things in their own way. We are looking at an 18 month engagement – not for any reason of age or finances, but just due to timing. It is too late in the year for us to get married this year, and his sister is pregnant so we want to enjoy that also.

I think your boyfriend has nice intentions in regards to proposing and it signifies to everyone that you are serious. A big bonus is it gives you lots of time to save!!

I would love to have a year long engagement, and we are financially set, but I am a perfectionist when it comes to huge things like this, so it could definitely take us to the 18 month mark. 🙂 I know that it will be special, no matter how long it will take. Congratulations! 🙂

Congratulations! I think the idea of a 3-5 year engagment is wonderful! It will give both of you time to get yourselves settled and ready for marriage.
