How long have you and your husband / fiance been together?

Recommended Posts

Too funny - I saw a girl that looked like your picture, she was trying on wedding dresses, and I almost said something to her! Glad I didn't!

I first met Jeff in 1992 because we had mutual friends. We always managed to hang around in the same group of people and he dated 3 of my really good friends through high school and college. Then I got married and he was in a serious relationship for about 5 years and we kinda went our separate ways. I ended up divorced and he broke up with his girlfriend, so we started hanging out together as friends. That was in December 2004... fast forward a year and a half and we are now still best friends, but also soulmates. I guess we both needed to go through all our crappy relationships to find out what we really wanted. He proposed on Memorial Day this year.

So, to answer your question- we've been together 2 years, but have known eachother for so long, it just feels like we've been together forever!

I met Hanssel (yes, thats his name!) at a friends Graduation Party in May2004. He is good friends with her then FI. The funny thing is that we actually were introduced prior about a year before when the same couple became engaged! However we don't remember meeting each other. Which was good because I had just ended a 5+ yr. realtionship and he had just ended a 2 yr. relationship. (I was on an "I hate guys" mode). But the second encounter was perfect and I was ready for him!

Dave and I met on 11/01/01 at a "Think and Drink" MBA Happy Hour. My friend dragged me there as her "wingman" but I ended up meeting my future husband instead and she went home dateless. Dave was in his last year of grad school. We dated casually until I knew he was planning on sticking around in Austin. We got more serious in the summer of 2002. He asked my father for my hand in July 2005, but proposed to me in October of 2005. I'm still amazed my parents were able to keep the secret so long. Dave found out he got a new job in Dallas the day before he proposed (althogh he'd planned the trip and proposal long before). So, I had to decide to marry him and leave Austin for Dallas all at the same time. I never had any doubts about him. We got married on October 28, 2006. So, fall is a really great time for us. I'm so happy to call him my husband now. In total, I'd say we've been together 5 years. But, as Janet says, the clock seems to start over when you get married. wink.gif

OK, I've been meaning to post to this thread for DAYS now!

 

Rafael & I met at work in 2004. I was actually on the panel that interviewed him to come work for the company. He came to work for us & we went to lunch one day to discuss a business issue. We ended up going to lunch once a week or so for about 6 months on a friendly basis. Finally in April of last year we went on our first official date on Easter since neither of us had plans. A lunch date turned into a dinner date and now here we are! He is the man that I've been waiting for and it was so reassuring to have him come into my life. He proposed to me this year in April. So I guess we've been together a year & a half.

Marc and I met in New York City over Thanksgiving weekend 4 years ago. I was visiting my friend who lived there and he was visiting his friend who lived there. Well our two friends knew each other and a big group of us got together to go see a band play. Marc & I got to talking and it turned out we both lived in Newport Beach, CA 2 miles from each other and worked down the street from each other?!? We ended up hitting it off and he called me when he got back. We had our first date over lunch and the rest is history. We got engaged after 3 years, but have been together 4 years total!

 

He is soo wonderful and I never thought I would ever meet someone I am so compatible with. I never had any insecutities or any doubts about his feelings for me, or my own for that matter. It felt so easy. It has never been so easy and I have never been so happy.
