  • Wedding: July 2016 - Not Decided Yet

How did you meet your SO? High School – we met in the 7th grade, became friends in the 9th grade and then started dating right after our senior year of high school. 

How long have you been together? 5 1/2 years 

Who said I love you first? He did even before we started dating – we had tried the “talking” or “hooking up” thing before but the timing was never right. The second time he wanted to make sure that it would last and he said it pretty quickly and things have turned out for the best πŸ™‚

Do you live together?  Yes with our 8 month old Goldendoodle pup – Lacey

When’s the last time you saw your SO? Right now as we sit here watching the Cavs game. 

When do you think you’ll be married? We have talked and have decided on probably July 2016. 

How long do you see being with your SO?  Forever and always – couldn’t imagine my life without him. 

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? I wouldn’t have moved in with him if he wasn’t the man I was going to marry. Also, I wouldn’t have been with him this long if we both weren’t on the same page. 

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? Everyday with him. I can’t pinpoint one specific thing. There have been so many magical moments with him. 

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? For at least 4 years and he’s felt the same. We haven’t gotten engaged earlier because of monitary reasons but I know that he has purchased the ring and now it is just a matter of time. 

What would drive you apart? Losing trust in eachother. 

Your perfect wedding with your SO? A sunny, beautiful day, lots of beautiful flowers. Surrounded by our closest family and friends Having him see me in my dress and me looking at him down the aisle – him looking dapper in his tux. Ah I can’t wait!

  • Wedding: October 2015

How did you meet your SO? We met while working together. He was making his gigantic dinner and I walked right up to him and said “God fatty, each much?!” I’m very lucky my man has a good sense of humor!

How long have you been together? 5 years 

Who said I love you first? He did. We were snuggling on the couch in the dark with his brother and sister in law sleeping in the other room. I was telling him how I was the agressor in my other relationships and how it always bothered me because men had a hard time just telling me how they felt even if I already knew. He put my face between his hands, looked me straight in the eyes, and told me he loved me. It was amazing.

Do you live together?  Yes with our 3 year old Sheltie Myra and our kitty Humphrey.

When’s the last time you saw your SO? He’s cuddling with me right now playing his Gameboy while I type. πŸ™‚

When do you think you’ll be married? October 31st, 2015

How long do you see being with your SO? There is no life after him.

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? Yes. We originally never wanted to get married.

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? After our first year together we took a week long vacation to New Orleans. The first morning that we woke up together, he pulled me close and kissed my neck and told me he loved me and it just hit me that I needed to wake up to him every morning.

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? I was ready to get engaged for a year before it actually happened, and we’ve been engaged for two years.

What would drive you apart? Anything short of physical cheating we can get through together. We have already tested the limits of our relationship.

Your perfect wedding with your SO? A crisp fall day surronded by our friends and family!

I love reading all of these! πŸ™‚ 

How did you meet your SO? We met through friends at a party. My SO was persistent and asked me out 3 times over the course of a few weeks. Finally I said yes. He charmed me. 

How long have you been together? 8 years.

Who said I love you first? He did. We had spent the night at his place, and I woke up to him looking at me all googly-eyed. He went to speak and then blurted out “I love you, babe.” It was super cute.

Do you live together? We’ve lived together since around the 1.5 year mark. He’s by far my favourite roomie ever.

When’s the last time you saw your SO? This morning, he kissed me goodbye before heading to work. 

When do you think you’ll be married? Hopefully sometime next year. 

How long do you see being with your SO? I’m hoping until we are both very, very old and very, very grey. We already have an arrangement – I will push him around in his wheelchair while he carries my oxygen tank. 

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? This is a hard question. I love him with every ounce of me, but marriage is very important to me. I’d like to say yes, but I just don’t know if I could be with someone who doesn’t find it important as well. Like others have said, I would take that as us being incompatible. Luckily he does want marriage as well, I really don’t think we would’ve lasted this long if we didn’t want the same things in life. 

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? Oh man, there’s so many…but our first date is probably my favourite. I’m going to sound super cheesy, but it felt like something out a movie. I remember having that moment where I realized it felt like I’d known him my entire life. We walked around our city for hours, and just kept walking and talking even though it had started raining. We had our first kiss in the rain. πŸ™‚ So that was definitely a favourite. And of course, the time when we were at a college party and I was getting sick in the bathroom. He came over to hold my hair back… and stepped on my glasses that were beside the toilet. I knew it was love when I woke up the next morning to him trying to tape the arm of my glasses back on hahaha. 

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? I’ve been ready to get engaged for probably about 5 or so years now. I know that may sound crazy to some, but I truly love this man, he’s my best friend and I want to marry him…not just be married. So I will wait for him to be ready [and I think that time may be coming soon!].  

What would drive you apart? Being together as long as we have, we’ve defintiely been through a lot, so I feel like we’d be able to work through practically anything at this point. Physical cheating would probably do it though. 

Your perfect wedding with your SO? Preferably a fall wedding [or maybe spring], something very small and intimate with our families around us.

How long have you been together? As an actual relationship; 5 years.

When’s the last time you saw your SO? About 5 seconds ago

How long do you see being with your SO? We never thought it would last. But somehow we’re still going!

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? Yep! I don’t really care about getting married much. It’s more of just a celebration of our long-lasting love.

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? The day he said he had feelings for me, and that I was the best thing that ever happened to him.

  • Wedding: September 2015

How did you meet? I was his teller and then business customer manager at a bank for 3 years. I always thought he was hot, but he was married. Come to find out, he always thought I was hot! But he was married. Then I left the bank and never saw him again. Then we ran into each other at a mutual wedding, and he had divorced his wife. Apparently he watched me dancing all night and was trying to figure out a way to ask me on a date. I left before he could ask me! He tracked me down on facebook, and I said no. He kept bugging me, so I finally said one date, and then it was history.

How long have you been together? Five years!

Who said I love you first? Me. We were snuggling on the couch and I just kinda blurted it out. Then I said No, I didn’t mean that. Then I stumbled over my words. He laughed and said Babe, I love you too. 

Live together? Yep!

Last time we saw each other? We are both sitting on our computers now. He is working on “business stuff” and I am “studying.” He’s really playing his game and I have a gazillion tabs open, bouncing back and forth between everything.

Marriage date: 09/15/2015 All multiples of three, so they are all my favorite number.

How long will we be together? I give it a good 20 years. I’m not allowed to say forever, because he thinks that will jinx us. Everyone he knows has gone through at least one divorce.

Would I stay without a marriage? That’s a tough one! I had a leave date in my head, but I honestly don’t think I would have been able to do it. I love him too much!

Favorite Memory of him: When he gets in his Bronco and tears up the mudpit. We are rednecks at heart, and he is so damn sexy covered in mud and grease! 

How long have I been ready to be engaged: Since I told him I loved him, took it back, then he said he loved me.

What would drive us apart: I don’t really know. I can’t imagine him cheating or doing anything morally wrong, but you never know. It would depend on the circumstances.

Perfect Wedding: Down in New Orleans in the spring with all our family and friends. I love springtime in the south! There is nothing prettier. That’s not going to happen, so the next best thing is the wedding we are planning. It’s at a beautiful mansion and will be in September. Here in Michigan, we don’t get a spring. The snow melts, everything is ugly, and then it’s summer.  We don’t get leaves on the trees until May, and then the weather is iffy. The past few Mays have been in the 50’s temp wise. The lakes keep us warmer a little longer, and September brings beautiful 70 degree days.

  • Wedding: December 2014

How did you meet your SO? Plenty of Fish. I signed up on Saturday, met Fiance on Wednesday. We did trivia at a local pizza place on our first date. 

How long have you been together? A year and a couple months

Who said I love you first? I guess I’m one of the few but I said it first. I actually said “You know I love your right?” It was a out a month in and I could tell he wanted to say it but he was scared, he kept almost saying it lol. I just wanted to get it over with!

 

Do you live together? Yes, we moved in together after about 6 months. We were going to wait for his lease to expire, but his roommate started being an asshole all the time so he moved in with me early. 

When’s the last time you saw your SO? This morning, he’s working today.

When do you think you’ll be married? Christmas Day this year. 47 days!

How long do you see being with your SO? Till death do us part.

 

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? That’s a tough one. I guess it would depend on why he wouldn’t want to get married. Part of the reason that I love him is that we share the same values regarding getting married and having a family. I wouldn’t want to have a family with him if we weren’t married, so getting married is important to me. So, in general, I would say no, I would not stay if he wouldn’t marry me, I probably wouldn’t have developed a relationship initially with him if we didn’t share that goal.

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? There are so many, but I guess his 30th birthday was a good one. His friends kind of bugged out, so it was just us hanging out at a local bar. We met a drunk guy there who kept giving us money to load up the juke box. We played Toto’s “Africa” and The Proclaimers “500 miles” like 5 times in a row. I’m sure the other patrons didn’t appreciate it, but they certainly got a show, we thought it was hilarious singing and dancing along and yelling “Da Da Da!” Luckily the bar wasn’t too busy with it being a weekday. 

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? I’ve known since our second date that I was going to marry him. We both did. It was always just assumed that we were getting married. We had people asking us about it a couple months in and his mom has called me her future daughter in law since before we even met. We did wait a year to get officially engaged though.

What would drive you apart? Cheating. Neither of us would tolerate that. Funny enough, I’ve shared some of the stories from the Bee with him and he said that if I wanted to change my engagement ring as soon as I got it, he would break up with me, as the SO did in a couple recent threads.

Your perfect wedding with your SO? Honestly, probably a destination elopement in Ireland. I really don’t care to have a traditional wedding or have other people there. My mother would kill me if we eloped though. So we compromised and are having a small ceremony at FI’s parents house and a honeymoon in Ireland. Really though, it doesn’t matter a whole lot to me, I’d go down to the courthouse in jeans if it wasn’t for the families.

How did you meet your SO? We were seniors in high school, but went to different schools. My best friend dragged me to a New Years party 2006/2007 and he just came up and started talking to me. I’m super shy and was taken with him instantly. I even told my friend “If I went to your school, I’d have a crush on him”, which was shocking because I NEVER admitted things like that. He asked me if I’d be his date to prom, then, in Feb asked me to be his girlfriend.

How long have you been together?  8 years in February. High school sweethearts.

Who said I love you first?  He did after 3 months.

Do you live together?  Yes

When’s the last time you saw your SO? 5 seconds ago.

When do you think you’ll be married? In autumn, either ’15 or ’16.

How long do you see being with your SO? Always.

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? He wants to marry be as much as I want to marry him, but yeah, it’s not a super meaningful piece of paper to me, and if he didn’t want to be labelled as such, I wouldn’t care.

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? Pretty much every day. He’s a big dude, 6’5” and sturdily built, and when we adopted our kittens they could fit in his palm. We couldn’t take them home right away, so we left the adoption center, and he had left his phone inside…he went back, and having to say goodbye to them again was too much and he broke down crying. It was so sweet. He can hold his own in a physical altercation, but is just the sweetest giant.

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? He started saving for a ring and said it’d be soon. I’ve only been really anticipating it for a month or two. We’re 24 so we aren’t in a hurry.

What would drive you apart? Cheating.

Your perfect wedding with your SO? September on my mother’s farm with all my family there. Which is likely how we’ll do it.

How did you meet your SO? We met quite a few years before we ever started dating. I met him in high school!

How long have you been together? It will be 5 years in a few months.

Who said I love you first?  I did…but he was happy to say it back. πŸ™‚

Do you live together?  No…we are both pretty religious and share the thought that we probably won’t live together prior to getting married.

When’s the last time you saw your SO? He left my place about half an hour ago.

When do you think you’ll be married? I just made up a date to put on this site but my guess is not for a few more years. I think it will be at least another year or so before we get engaged…and then depending on the time of year he proposes and the time of year we want to get married I’d think we would want about a year long engagement.

How long do you see being with your SO? I think we both feel like we will get married in the future and we both have the strong belief that we only want to marry once. We aren’t rushing into anything though as we are still young and both have friends who have already been married and divorced in their early 20s…one being his little sister.

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? He isn’t the type of guy who would want to be with a girl forever and not marry her. We don’t want to live together before marriage and we both want kids and are not going to have children out of wedlock so marriage I know is something he wants. I’m willing to wait until he is ready and not push him…I know him and I know he wants all his ducks in a row before making that move and he is working towards straightening all those cute little ducks. But…as the question asks, would I stay with him IF he would not ever marry me? The answer to that would sadly be no. But it doesn’t really have to be sad because I know that isn’t the person he is. I want to be married and living with my husband and have babies one day and I’m not willing to negotiate that. But that’s what the amazing guy I’ve got wants too…just not yet. πŸ™‚

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? Probably when he showed up to my house to pick me up for my birthday a few years back. He doesn’t like country music and he doesn’t wear many shirts other than his Harley Davidson t-shirts but for my birthday he told me he was taking me to a Blake Shelton concert and he showed up at the door with flowers and wearing a button up plaid “country” shirt. He certainly loves me. πŸ™‚

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? Not for very long…we’ve been long distance for quite a bit of our relationship and just about 6 months ago I moved back to the same area as him. I never really thought about it too much before because we couldn’t even see eachother whenever we wanted. Now that we are together so much it’s really got me thinking of that possibility. I’m excited for my future!

What would drive you apart? I’m not sure…I try not to think like that? Cheating and drugs would be definite deal breakers for me…but he has the same deal breakers so that’s not a problem. I couldn’t deal with long distance again but we are both in great jobs in the same town now so I don’t see that happening either.

Your perfect wedding with your SO? We are both family people so it would be a big majority of each of our families with a small combination of our closest friends (we both definitely believe in quality of friends over quantity). He has friends with a band so I see them being our reception music and I really hope our pastor at church will be the one to marry us. Short wedding…big party. Cute and simple…not TONS of money spent but spent in the right places.

How did you meet your SO? Weeellllllllllll weird story I usually bypass and go with we met in High School but, reallllly it came down to I dated his half brother my junior year of high school but, it was only 2 months and then, me and my SO went to the same college we started dating before we moved into the dorms that summer … he was very persistent even though I felt funny about it but, finally I went to my mom and she told me “He’s a nice boy, You never know you may miss out on an amazing person regardless of how it turns out.” She was right 

How long have you been together? almost 3 and 1/2 years

Who said I love you first?  I did. I kept almost letting it slip in casual conversation talking to him ( They are 3 words I do not take lightly I wanted to make sure I knew 500% as not to let myself get hurt or hurt him) finally as he was leaving one night I said ” I have something to tell you you dont have to say it back if you still need time but, I cant hold it back anymore… I love you… like I said please dont…” and he cut me off before i could finish and said “I love you ” back 

Do you live together?  Yes

When’s the last time you saw your SO? When he left for work around 2:30 … 

When do you think you’ll be married? September 26th, 2015!

How long do you see being with your SO? I hope everyones answer is FOREVER or you might want to reconsider the whole wedding thing. 

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? I would be very sad very disapointed now how I pictured the timeline of my life but, I can’t live without him so I guess I’d have to get over it (but, honestlly he wouldnt be who he is without the desire to get married)

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? Mostly just the small silly things here n there everyday  if I had to pick one big moment to would be our spontaneous  trip to virgina beach this past may ( where we got enagged)  but, not for that reason but, bc it was fun Ive always claimed I just know I would love virginia and that I wanted to move that way someday finally he just said ok lets go then we took off work for a long weekend he bought my ring a couple days before we left and we just drove.

How long have you been ready for getting engaged?  Idk when excatlly I know right up around the time he got my ring … I couldnt get it out of my head how silly boyfriend sounded anymore when I spoke about him to people It seemed like such a weak word for how I felt about him thats when I reallllly wanted it  ( didnt have to wait to long lol ) 

What would drive you apart? obv. anything morally wrong as others have said

Your perfect wedding with your SO? One where we end the day happy and our family is happy … but, we are doing an outdoor church wedding with a peacock theme which has been my love since I was a little girl ( I know its trendy now but, I have honestlly never dreamed of anything different .. just makes things easier for buying things with peacock feathers now lol)
