  • I honestly feel it is different for everyone. You get married when you both feel like you are ready to take that commitment to each other.

  • Dated 1 year before moving in together and then lived together for 2 years before getting engaged and then it was another 7 months before we were married. So I guess 3-1/2 years.

  • At least 2 years... I know that sounds like a long time, but if you're going to spend the rest of your lives together, waiting 2 years won't ruin it.

  • We've been together for a year and I've already had it decided that when the time comes to set a wedding date it will be at least a year away from the date asked.
