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?
We dated about 2 1/2 years before we got engaged this past Christmas! I knew long before then that i wanted to marry him though. we're getting married this august!
Dated 3 years, engaged for 1.
Edit: Friends for a year before dating, married at age 28.
6 days and 11 hr dating. 3 month engagement.
met july '88. moved in feb. '89
engaged christmas 94.
married june 2006
we took our time
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!
