    @krstino1012:  We got married on our two year anniversary.  We dated for 1 1/2 years and had a 6 month engagement.  We were 30 when we met and 32 when we married!

     

    Honestly though, in my husband’s culture, engagements are usually only 1-3 months, so his parents thought ours was “long”. hehe.  Long engagements are more of a western society thing.

    Our relationship and engagement will be just over 3 years total. That’s pretty short compared to some Bees I’ve seen!

    • Wedding: September 2013

    We’ve been together for 6.5 years (7 years in may) – engaged on January 31st, and our wedding will be in september (7.25 years)

    I agree that is depends on your ages as well, we started dating when I was 17 and he was 22, we’ll be 25 and 29 when we are married so we are still a bit young for marriage, but it’s been 7 years so I think it balances out, thats us though, every couple it different

    @krstino1012:  I said 1-2 years. but that was the amount of time officially together, we were both single and really close firends before. so it’s not like we had just meet.

    We got engaged after 7 years. We will be together 8 and a half years by the time we get married. We started dating when we were 18 and we’re in any rush to get engaged.

    I think it’s different when you are a bit older. I’m 21 and will be 23 when I get married and my Fiance will be 26 when we get married. We had been dating for almost 4 years when he proposed. I think it’s a bigger deal when you’re younger, because you’re still finding yourself and changing.

    • Wedding: August 2013

    @krstino1012:  My Fiance and I met in June of 2012. We were engaged by Christmas and we’re getting married this August. We were in a relationship for 3 months before getting engaged and dated for 6 months. We are getting married one day shy of our 1-yr anniversary.

    Different strokes for different folks. 🙂

    @krstino1012:  We got engaged on our one year anniversary. Our engagement has so far been a little over a year long, and by the time we get married we will have been together 2.5 years, & engaged for 1.5…pretty short by today’s standard.

    We dated for 6 months, lived together 10 months before he proposed and were engaged 3.5 months. So really short compared to a lot of bees. We’re in our 40’s, he has full custody of his children, we knew we were going to get married when I moved in.

    Every relationship is different. I know couples who dated a very short time and are still together and couples who dated a very long time and ended up divorced

    I think it depends if I met my Fi a couple of years ago when I didn’t have my job or money in order, and we probably would have dated for a few years. I’m one of those people who prefer being financially stable and I wasn’t ready to get married in my early to mid twenties.

    I think it depends on a variety of factors and that was mine.
