How long did it take your man to ask you to marry him officially?

I don't mean for him to say "someday we'll get married" I mean until he actually proposed. I know some peope get engaged right away and some couples wait forever!

  • I'm always amazed at this question - maybe because I'm older it wasn't such a big deal?

    We always knew we were going to get married and become parents - picked out the ring together (paid out out of our joint account) and then while we were on the couch just doing nothing, DH got the silliest look in his eye and we crawled into bed and he actually said the words. I started to laugh and then said "Of course" and that was it.

    I knew on our first date he was the guy for me, so I was never worried. It was never HIS decision to get married, it was OURS. I can't imagine just twiddling my thumbs waiting for someone else to decide my fate.

  • HD and I met when I was 17 and he was 18 he had a girlfriend at the time. We became friends and hung out some on the weekends with this group of guys we both knew. When I was 20 he told me he and his GF broke up. we started dating with in a fe months. It was really weird at first because we were such good 'guy' friends. I never imagined he saw me as anything but one of the guys. I always liked him a lot. We moved in together after about 10 months . he purposed a few months after that and were married the next year. Pg after 2 months of marriage. Crazy huh?
