    We have been together for almost 4 1/2 years before we got engaged (that is why I owuldn't let him push the wedding out beyond one year)

      We will have dated for 13 years by the time we are married in February 2009!! It will feel weird to start the count over again!

        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!!!

            Lets see, we'll be together for a little over 12 years when we finally say I do!

              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!!

                  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.
