How long before he popped the question?

Just felt like reminding people what the feeling was when you first got engaged/married. And if was a bad one (I hope not), my apologies.

And... I'm curious.
I told my SO that if he didn't pull out a ring within seven years, I'd be one hell of a pissed off girlfriend. We both laughed pretty hard at that considering I was half joking haha.

So.. how long were you in a relationship before he popped the question?

  • My Hubby and I are high school sweethearts. We were together for almost 5 years before he proposed. We've been married for 4 years now, and I LOVE him dearly!!!

  • Huh... How old were you guys then? I'm 19 and he's about to turn 20.
    So seven years from now would be what's considered an "ideal" time to have kids. Though things like that don't always work out.

  • He first popped the question after our first summer going out, we were 16 and had been dating for 3 months. (no ring). Then I went away to college, and over christmas break he asked again, this time with a ring :) He asked me on Christmas eve when we were opening gifts. My ring was in a huge box, in another box, in another box.. and when I got to the ring box, he took it from me.. and I got a little mad... Then he asked me.. in front of his whole family! And I was shy, and whispered it in his ear... We were married six months later when we were 19. :)
