    4 years...i'm glad he finally popped the question!!
    I've booked Heather Parker for my photographer for my April 2, 2011 wedding in Ochi Rios, Jamaica. If anyone is getting married in Jamaica days before or after me and is interested sharing her travel expenses to save few wedding budget bucks, let me know. Take a look at her work for Moon Dance...

      I'm pretty sure I hold the longest time dating. We dated 13 years and 5 days before he finally proposed! We will be dating 14 years before we get married!!!

        Close. :) 13 years and 2 months 4 days. We dated before becoming engaged. It'll be 2 months short of our 15 year mark when we have our wedding. :)

            I know I hold the record. 19 years!! We met when I was 16 and he was 15. We've had two seperate long distance relationships. 4 years of college and another 3 years when I moved to the West Coast. No kids but its spooks me knowing we could have been working on grandkids by now!

              On our 3 year anniversary Sean's Grandpa passed away. Neither of us wanted to get married ever. We were living together for 2 years and considered ourselves committed which was as good as married. After that though we decided we needed a different anniversary date so that's when we started talking about marriage. We just had our 4 year anniversary last month and for my 30th birthday(they are a week apart) I got my ring. We'll have been together 5 years when we get married.

              I was actually surprised at how many brides on here that had been with their FHs for so long before they decided to get married. I love that there is still romance in these relationships after so many years. That is what makes a good marriage!
              Two lives, two hearts joined together in friendship united forever in love

                Wow!! I think EVERYONE has me beat, no doubt. But when it's right it's right! We met 3 1/2 years ago - professionally/business only (Sold him his house 2 years ago- well OUR house! LOL!) We didn't really keep in touch, and were reconnected randomly. But from the reconnect to engagement, 5 months!! It has been complete BLISS!! I am one Happy Happy girl!!!

                  Met through a mutual friend in 1997, started "officially" dating in 1998, moved in together in 2004, getting married in 2010. So it will be 11 years 7 months 19 days 18 hours by the time our 08/20/2010 wedding rolls around - but hey I am not watching the clock...no not me...LOL
