How long did you date before enagaged?

Recommended Posts

I possibly win for shortest relationship prior to becoming engagedblush2.gif...he proposed 4 months into our relationship. Here's a bit more of an explanation, though...but I am going to make this as short as possible. I dated his best friend for nearly 5 years, he dated my (former) best friend for 2--and btw, we ended our friendship well before DF & I ever hooked up. Anyway, my 5 year relationship ended when I went away to college, but we remained friends...he still wanted us to get back together, get married someday, etc. etc. but I wanted to take some time off while I was in school. He said something about proposing to me one night, then two nights later I find out he took his life. 11 months later, some way or another his best friend & I (by fate, I believe) ended up talking together until 7am after a party got busted one night. I was still in college & "new guy" (DF) already had a job & home a couple hundred miles away, so we only saw each other here & there--we spent hours on the phone each night, though. Okay, so 2 weeks into it he dropped the L-bomb & said he just couldn't help himself because he truly already knew he did. A month into it, he was already starting conversations about weddings over dinner (which was when we discussed DWs!) and just 2 months into it, we found out we were pregnant :)...which brings us to 4 months into it & his proposal! It was a complete surprise, still, even though there was a baby in the picture & we both knew & promised we'd end up together forever, regardless.

 

I guess we moved along faster, not only because of our pregnancy, but because we didn't have to go through the time it takes to "get to know each other" and we already knew each other's dating histories inside and out, so there you have it! Do I win? LOL

We got engaged after about a year and a half. will be 2 1/2 when we get married.

We also got lucky and knew each other through my cousin so we really didn't need any time for the "getting to know each other" either.

 

Have to make a comment thought, my friends got married last year and they had been together 13 years!!!!! through highschool and college, so I remember that wedding being so special everyone was like, "finally!" :)

Funny you say that...it has crossed my mind before that I could almost write a book about my life. There are several other aspects of my life that are kind of crazy/"movie-worthy"..lol but I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who could say the same thing about their personal experiences :)

I've got you beat also. We have been together 9 years and are just now getting married! hehe I think only 1 person beat me. What took our grooms so long to realize we are the best? :-)

I don't feel so odd after reading some of the responses we have been together 7 years on Oct 4, 2010. And will be just about 7 1/2 when we get married! It's been a great ride though, so I wouldn't change anything about it. :)
