I did; the very first time we ever communicated. And he didn’t freak out, which was a good sign. I had just ended a 17-year relationship with a man who vowed he would never marry me, and I needed for my (now) Fiance to know that I wasn’t going to be strung along as a girlfriend/business partner for another 17 years.

This exactly. I thought about it, and I still don’t know who did.

He did. I felt for a few months that he was ‘the one”, but I did not want to say anything (it was way too soon). Then after about six months of being together he started saying how he felt that way and knew we would get married eventually. It made me happy to know he felt the same way. I dont know if i ever would have brought it up if he had not, I was too afraid to.

I don’t recall. It was early on in our relationship. Both of us were talking about it, probably me more so at first. Then I freaked out, and we tabled the discussion for awhile until I was ready.

I honestly have no idea. That’s pretty weird now that I think about it. We were pretty young and stupid when we first decided to get married, though. So, there’s been a big gap between when we wanted to get married, and when we felt we were financially and emotionally able to.
I guess at some point along the way I forgot.

He did, but he wasn’t serious. He was like, 17. It was a “Hey, if we’re both single at 30 we should just get married” kind of thing said jokingly probably within like 4 weeks of us meeting. We didn’t wait until we were 30 :).

DH did. He has 2 boys and had been in the midst of a divorce when we became friends. Slowly we got closer and he brought up how the future would be with the 4 of us. We started talking about it seriously in February 2010, when I cut all ties with a guy that wanted to be more than I did. We went ring shopping after he went home to visit the family with me over Thanksgiving (due to distance, he had only met them once before that) and got engaged right before Christmas 2010… now married 2 months.

I honestly don’t remember who brought it up, but it was within the first year of our relationship and we were both relieved to find out that that we were on the same page about it.

I did. We got two invitations in the mail for my cousins’ weddings in the same week. We’d been dating for about a year, and I was like, “Do you think I’m going to have a ring on my finger by the time we go to these?” He was like, “Yep, I definitely think so.” That was early summer; he proposed in January.

A friend did 🙂 we were all out and he said “wow, if you guys are still together in six months, you’ll be married in a year”. We hadn’t talked about it yet because it had only been about six months, but after the friend brought it up we had a conversation about how serious we were.
We broke up for about four weeks a couple of months later, but got back together during a brutally honest and drunk conversation that I started. I told him I didn’t think he was serious bevause he lived with his brother and spent too much money on cars and that he needed to buy me a house. Whatever, it worked 🙂
