How long did you date?

How long did you date your spouse before you got engaged?

I'm certain that I've found the man that I'm destined to spend the rest of my life with but I'm anxious to get married and start a family. Just curious; How'd things happen for you?

Dated for 1  year and a half (started talking possibly getting married one day after 4 months)  engaged 10 months

Aquaintences - 3 yrs

Moved in together after 3 coffee get togethers (friends)

lived together 6 years

then engaged 1 year

Married now 6 years.

Started to go on dates after wedding :D

Friends for about four years, dated less than a year (knew we wanted to get married within a few months of dating), formally engaged for a year and three months, and we've been married four wonderful years.

The biggest suggestion I can make is don't push your relationship, everything will fall into place when the timing is right.

Enjoy every moment and good luck to you!

Let's see...

Met in September 2006

Engaged in October 2009

Married in August 2010

So, just over 3 years for dating and 10 months for engagement.

Met in 1996. Dated until 2000. Broke up until 2003. Dated and then lived together until 2006, when we got engaged in October. Married in May of 2007.

How old were you when you tied the knot?

3 months.  today is our 66 month aniversary,  may 19 is 5 years married. 

Began dating may 2007; engaged dec 2009 (totally surprised...thought we'd be dating a whole other year); married march 2011 @ age 29 (3 months before my 30th).

Dated 6 years. Married 22 years as of Saturday.

8 years. 6 months "officially engaged"
