How long after you started dating your DH did you get engaged? How long after that did you get married? and finally, how long have you been together?!

I have been asking many people this question because until recently I was a firm believer in giving it as much time as possible. I've learned through experience however that sometimes it's just right and when it's right you do whatever you feel is good for the two of you.

How long after you started dating your DH did you get engaged? 6 months!
How long after that did you get married? A year and a half
How long have you been together? 3 years total

  • My ex and I got engaged after 1 1/2 yrs of dating. Then we were married 13 months later. So, a total of 2.5 yrs before marriage.
    And we were married for 9 yrs.

  • We didn't really get engaged, we decided to get married after being together 9 months (we eloped). We've been married seven years
    .
    We moved quickly because he needed immigration status and we realized we couldn't stand the idea of being apart. We did the right thing for us and our families were very supportive.
