How long did you date before enagaged?

Recommended Posts

We were best friends for 4 years before we started dating. I moved in 4 months into the relationship. We've been together just over 2 years and will be married just under the 4 year mark.

We knew (and dated) for about a year and two or three months before we got engaged. We weren't really on the ball with wedding planning though - so we'll have been engaged for 2 and a half years before our wedding rolls around!

I'm feeling like we jumped the gun compared to everyone else...FI and I were dating for just over a year when he popped the question. AND, most of the time we were dating he was in Germany...so technically we were only "together" for 3 months...We started dating in November of 2005, he left in February of 2006 (for a year and a half!), and he proposed in February of 2007. We will have been engaged for 2 1/2 years when we get married. But we have been living together for a year and a half now, so sometimes it feels like we're already married...

We dated 3 years and then the engagement and moving in together happened near simultaneously. When we're married in May it will be 4 years and 3 months. It somehow seems like it has both been a very short amount and very long amount of time!

We planned on marrying within a year after the engagement, but so much happened... we bought a house and completely renovated it, I quit my job as a Flight Attendant to go back to school, and we've just been so busy. We'll be together now for 4 years by the time we get married.
I can beat you Heidi...we got engaged one month after our first date. We will be together about 18 months when we get married next year. My only caveat is that we have actually known each other since high school and reconnected with each other on classmates.com 21 years later. It was truly one of those whirlwind romances where we knew right away we would be together forever things!

    • 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.
