I am really curious after reading so many threads how old everyone is and how long their engagement / relationship is going to be by the wedding day? I'm 37 and our total engagement length with be just over 3 months, and we will have been dating exclusively for just under 5 years.

    I'm 26, FH is 27. We will be engaged for over 13 months by the time we get married. We were together exactly 1 year the day he proposed; together just over 2 years on our wedding day.

    We met/ started dating when we were both 21. We got engaged at 29, had a 10 month engagement, and were married at age 29/30. Perfect for us Smiley smile

    Hi I’m 24 and he’s 26, we’ve been together for 6 years. By the time we get married it will have been a 2 year engagement (or 1 year 364 days). We get married on the 23rd December 2020. I’m so excited. Any wedding advice? X

    Congrats on planning a wedding that quickly! We got engaged July 2019, after 5 years of dating and 4 years of living together. We'd been house hunting for almost two years and FINALLY closed on our house two weeks after we got engaged. I just wanted to enjoy being new homeowners and newly engaged for a bit so I didn't start wedding planning until November 2019. Big day is in March 2021, so it will be about a year and a half engagement. I'll be almost 32, he'll be 34 by the time we get married. Most of our friends and acquaintances are already married with a couple kids but we met each in our mid/late 20s and he was slow to pop the question LOL. I'm fine being older though, that way we both know exactly what we want!

    I am 50. He’s a month from 60! We just got engaged! We both have been married before…
    We both are glad to find each other and eliminate drama from our lives. I have never been happier. 9 months I’ve known this man. Lived with him 6 months. It is so easy with him and amazing!

    28 and 25 and our engagement will be 21 months. Our engagement is long because I have a very busy work schedule next year and a lot of popular venues are already booked for 2022.

    I'm 35, he's 32. We've been together for 2 years and our engagement will probably be about a year, maybe a year and a half (date isn't set yet)
