    Just about 10 years!  (Pretty much like Will and Kate) 

    We met as freshmen in college a month or so after 9/11 and were engaged last October 2011.

    I am moving in with Fiance for the very first time in about a month, and we are getting married in June.

    SO hasn’t proposed YET, but he has the ring and we have a mini trip coming up in two weeks and he’s been hinting that he’s going to do it then πŸ™‚ So if that happens, then we’ll have been together for one year and two months.  That might not seem like a long time, but the saying is true – when you know, you know!  I always thought that I’d need to be with someone for 3 – 5 years before getting engaged but after a previous relationship dragged out for 3.5 years with zero desire/intention to get married, it was a nice surprise to have that feeling with someone so soon.  I can’t wait!

    Almost 6 years of dating.  Our engagement will be almost 3 years because well, weddings are expensive, lol.

     

    He didn’t want to ask me to marry him if we weren’t financially able to pay for a wedding (we’re not getting any help, but didn’t want to settle for a wedding we didn’t really want, you only do this once, in theory, so no regrets), it seems silly to be enganged without actually planning a marriage.   We’ve been engaged for nearly 2 years now (2 years on my birthday, the 23rd) and I’m getting so excited (although my bank account is crying just a little)

    15 months after we started dating. We’re young (I’m 22, Fiance 24) so we had a lot of people comment on how “fast” it was, but it was right for us:) We’ll be engaged for 19 months by the time we get married so almost 3 years together by the time we get married.
