1. I’m twenty years old and I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year and a half.

2. I started waiting for a proposal after our one year anniversery in New Orleans, but we had been talking about it before then. (It was really important for us to be together for a year before then)

3. My age had NOTHING to do with wanting to get married. Everyone my age thinks that I am crazy, but I don’t need to be the typical college girl, and party and drink. I want to be a bride, a wife, and a mother (the last one maybe not soon, lol)

Fun thread!

I’m 24 and I’ve been with my SO for just shy of two years. I’ve been waiting… not very long, really, just since November.

Like a number of people on this thread, I’m relatively young, so I wouldn’t say my age actually has anything to do with it. Also, we’ve agreed that neither of us wants kids, so that’s not a factor. Actually, I’m not even sure I want to get married “soon”– I’m in school, so I’m not sure if we’ll want to pull together a wedding until I’m done next year.

I’m 24 and he’s 25. We have been together for 5 1/2 years but friends for 9.

I started waiting about a year and a half ago. But only in the past 4 months things have become more serious. (As in I officially moved in, we went ring shopping and plan to do it again next week!!! oh and he’s more and more interested in what i’ve been looking at on the boards and chiming in his opinion!)

My age hasn’t played any real role in why I want to get married. I feel it’s one of the only “traditional” idea that stuck from my upbringing. That and I couldn’t love anyone more then I love him.

We’re both 28 and we’ve been together for 5.5 yrs.

I haven’t really been waiting for a proposal, since until recently he hasn’t really been ready.  I’ve been ready for about 2-3 yrs though. Undecided

We’ve been talking, and I’m expecting something in about a year or so.

1. How old are you and how long have you been with your SO?

I’m 26 and my SO’s 28. We’ve been together since I was 22, but it’s been probably 3.75 years at this point. (Anniversary is in May.)

2. When did you start waiting for a proposal?

I’ve been waiting forever. But in seriousness and knowing that it is really possible; Probably since my birthday last month. So not that long.

3. Did your age have anything to do with you wanting to get married soon?

Somewhat. I’d like to have a kid by 30. Most of my relatives have been married at this age but I just haven’t gotten around to it just yet.

1. How old are you and how long have you been with your SO?

I’m 22 and been with my SO for over 4 years, nearly five.

2. When did you start waiting for a proposal?

I’ve been waiting for the past year and its getting harder each month.

3. Did your age have anything to do with you wanting to get married soon?

No, my age has nothing to do with wanting to get maried. I know he’s the man I want to be with for the rest of my life. Were both getting to stage now were I think its the right time to start considering engagement and marriage. Were about to move in and im about to graduate, so I think its the perfect time, unfortunately he doesn’t agree ๐Ÿ™

1. I’m 21 and we’ve been together 5 years ๐Ÿ™‚

2.Well, being a girl, I’ve been waiting since I was like 5 ๐Ÿ˜› In reality though, I started getting antsy about it about 6 months ago.

3.I’m a Junior in college at the moment, and I’ll be graduating May 2012. We’ve been planning on getting married as soon as we’re out of school…and I’m the kind of person who takes FOREVER to make descisions…so I knew I’d need a year or two to plan.

1. How old are you and how long have you been with your SO?

  • I’m 22 (and a 1/2 LOL), he’s 24. We’ve been together 5 1/2 years.

2. When did you start waiting for a proposal?

  • I officially started waiting/wanting a proposal December 2007, 4 months after our 2 year anniversary. It was our first Christmas back together after we split up for 3 months that Summer. I was 18 and wanted to be 18 (party with friends, go on adventures, be “free”) and he didn’t want to do this with me, so I made the hard decision to let him go and go do me. I was lucky enough that it only took me 3 months of doing me to realize that I’d much rather do me WITH him than with anybody else, and even MORE lucky that he still wanted to be with me too. We had never stopped talking during the separation. I was still very much in love with him and it broke my heart to leave him, and broke his heart that I left him; and there were lot of talks and tears as my head told me this was the best and my heart told me it was wrong. In the end it all worked out and I don’t think that had we NOT gone through that period, we would be together today. We learned so much about each other and ourselves.

3. Did your age have anything to do with you wanting to get married soon?

  • No, because I was only 19 when I knew I wanted to marry him. It was about the realization that I will not find another person who treats me as well and is willing to go to the ends of the world with me or fight for me other than SO.

1. I’m 50 and he is 49. We have been together 2 years and 5 months.

2. I started waiting at the 1 year and 3 month mark. So, basically, New Year’s day of 2010.

3. Yes, my age is a factor. I was married twice when I was younger, and disastrously so. I have been without a husband for 15 years. Mr Mermaid is so nice, kind, intelligent and sweet, things I never had all in one man before. He was married once, about 10 yrs ago, and he still has issues from that relationship. I still have residual issues too. But anyway, I look forward to getting married.

1. How old are you and how long have you been with your SO? My SO and I are both 22, almost 23. and we have been dating for nearly 2 years.

2. When did you start waiting for a proposal? I feel kind of silly because I started waiting after 8 months, after we had talked about getting married. Whoops. But, I started waiting when he knew I was waiting at about a year and 4 months.

3. Did your age have anything to do with you wanting to get married soon? I hope not, haha. Honestly, I had never really wanted to get married or have kids or any of that, but then I met my SO. It was being with him that made me want to get married soon.

  • Wedding: July 2012

@Shirinjoon: 

Hi fellow Bees!  This is my first post on any WeddingBee boards.  I have been lurking for a couple of months now and thought it was about time I took the plunge.  So here we go….

1. How old are you and how long have you been with your SO? – I’m 33 and have been with my SO for over 2 1/2 years.  We’ve been living together for over 1 1/2 years. 

2. When did you start waiting for a proposal? – I started “waiting” right after my first semester of grad school was over (December 2010).  I realized that we are doing everything right career-wise and financially and I didn’t want to go any further with him (i.e. – buy real estate, buy bigger ticket items like cars, etc.) without being married.

3. Did your age have anything to do with you wanting to get married soon? – It did in the sense that he wants to have at least two kids and my child-bearing years are quickly passing me by. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wedding: July 2012

1. I’m 27 (turning 28 in a couple weeks!) and SO and I have been together for almost 10 years (it will be 10 at the end of March – and yes 10 years is a long time – but we move slow!).

2. I think I was ready for a proposal since I was 25. I knew he was the one I was going to marry, but I didn’t start thinking about it seriously until we moved in together a year and a half ago. I got really anxious for a proposal about a year ago.

 3. Age has a little to do with me wanting to get married soon because I really want kids. But I mostly want to get married because I know SO and I were meant to be together and I’m ready to start that chapter of my life with him – it’s been long enough – right?! lol
