    We were dating for 2 years and 2 months when we got engaged. We've now been engaged for over a year, and we'll have been together almost exactly 4.5 years when we get married.

      Officially dating for 5 yrs, 1 month (we got engaged on our delayed 5th anniversary). We knew each other for about 4 years before we started dating - our first official date was actually my grandparents' 50th anniversary party :)

      We'll have been together for almost 6 1/2 years when we're married!

      Yay! the world still exists - it would've really sucked to have done all this planning for nothing! :D

        Who else put off serious thoughts of engagement & wedding until you were finished school and/or had steady jobs?

          Lots of people do that. We got engaged while he was still in school, but didn't set the date until after he would be done... hence a 2 year engagement.

Luckely neither of us felt like we needed to be married because it was the next step and ignored all the people who were constantly pressuring us. For the last 5 years all I have heard from people is "why aren't you guys married yet" or "when are you going to get married" or "do you guys not believe in marriage" I was so tired of hearing that!! Now I fianlly have an answer. The timeing is finally right and all those people can be quiet now!!! :-)

                 

                I'm right with you! My fiance proposed on our 10 year anniversary, and we will be married on our 12 year anniversary!

                 

                All the background chatter, of when will you do it, was becoming quite loud!

                  aww we are high school sweethearts too! However, I had to wait until our 10 year anniversary before I got the ring... and we'll have been together for 12 years on the day we get married! Just insane!

                   

                  When we got engaged, my Mom sent out an email to her friends with the headline "10 years in the making", and it has now become our tagline haha.

                    We are high school sweethearts. He proposed on our 10 year anniversary. We will be getting married on September 18th, 2014.... on our 12 year anniversary! Geez, talk about waiting forever!

                     

                    My mom entitled her email to her friends "10 years in the making" when she told them all about us getting engaged. That seems to have stuck, and is now our engagement tagline

                     

                    We have been best friends since grade 9, so by the time we get married, I will have known him for over 16 years! Just insane...almost at the point of knowing him and his family longer than we haven't!

                     

                    Congrats to all the newly engaged! And best wishes to those getting married in 2013 and 2014 and onwards! xoxo!

                       Finally, someone that has me beat! I thought I was all alone in the over 10 years of dating, over 12 years at getting married pool.
