      we were just shy of 5 years when he proposed, and will be just shy of 6 years when we get married! (high school sweethearts!)

        Before we were engaged... It was 5 years and 3 months we were dating. Had to stop and think, seems like it's been forever that we're been engaged now. By the time we're married it will be almost exactly 7 1/2 years.

          Ohhh! I love these.... DH and I talked about getting married 2 months into our relationship, but didn't make it "official" until we were about 9 and a half years together. By the time we got married, we were going on 10 years and here we are on our 12th year!

            2 years and 3 months. And boy, was I anxious! He must have known somehow.

            When I read some of your stories I realize that this isn't a long time, but when you're my age and you know you've found the ONE it's hard to wait!! In the end it will all be worth it though.

            When we are married it will be 3 years and 3 months :)

              We were together for about 5.5 years before we got engaged and it will be 7 years (and 4 months) when we get married...

              When we were dating (around 3/4 years) we had mutual friends who waited 7 years (maybe longer) before they got engaged and married and I was always like - "That isn't going to be us! 7 years is a long time!" And sure enough.... That's us now...

                Eban and I started dating in March, 1998. We moved in together in June, 1999... We just got engaged in April of this year! That's right- over 10 YEARS!! And to be honest, the timing was just right.

                  Wow, it made me feel better reading these! We've been together 8 years and I thought it we would have everyone beat! Maybe the pressure from everyone else is what makes you think you're waiting too long. We always knew we were going to get married, so we didn't mind waiting.

                    2 years and 3 months for me. But he first started asking me about marriage on our third date...we moved in together after 2 or 3 months, got a dog after 5 months, and bought a place together at the 7 month mark. Then we slowed down until a year and a half later! When you know, you know.
