How long did you date before enagaged?

Recommended Posts

We dated for 4 months before we got engaged. I was SO surprised - we had talked about marriage very early on but I thought we would be like most "normal" couples and date for at least a year. When you know, you know!

 

We were introduced to each other 2 years before we started dating - we lived half way across the country from each other and even though we hit it off almost immediately, it wasn't until the we met again at a mutual friends birthday party in 2006 that we decided to start dating - long distance. We have been long distance the entire engagment. When I finish grad school in May 2009, I am selling my house and finally moving to be with Chris!

We were dating six moinths when he proposed to me. Never thought in a million years we would have gotten married that quickly. We've now been married over 4 years and happy as ever!!!

We knew each other 3 months and 15 days when he proposed.

 

He asked me out over 8 times before I went on a first date with him. I had every excuse under the sun to not go out with him, as I was "seeing" someone.

Finally, I agree to go out with him on a Saturday and we have been inseperable since then!

 

On our wedding day, we will have been together 2 years 7 months.

He proposed to me 1 year and 9 months after we started dating... although we moved in together after 6 months, so we did everything kinda quick.

 

It is very true though, when you know, you know.

 

I remember telling my mom 2 weeks after dating him that I will be marrying him and now it is less than 6 months away!! smile43.gif

We've been dating since our first year in undergrad. We've almost finished our MAs together (this year), and even though we're unofficially engaged (he's waiting for my ring - *sigh* the life of students, lol), he hopes to be married by 2010. I'm hoping for 2011.

 

If it goes according to plan, we might officially be engaged by 2009...which would be seven years of dating beforegetting engaged. And then depending on the years, an additional 1- 2 years before the wedding.

We had been dating about a year and 10 months when we got engaged. We moved in together after about 7 months of dating I think...It was so strange how it worked out but it just did!

 

We will have been together just over 4 years when we get married.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
