    My fiance and I were together 2 years before he proposed. Within that time, we lived together for over a year and bought a house together. Our relationship moved pretty fast (we immediately started dating after our first date. We actually spent the whole day together on our first date and knew we wanted to be together). I found myself homeless when we were together for about 7ish months. He knew what it was like to be homeless and he didn't want that for me so we got an apartment together. We tried to buy a house at first but things didn't line up. In the beginning of our relationship, I was irritated by words such as marriage and engagement. I treated them as curse words. My fiance said he knew he was wanted to marry me when he got the apartment for us against what his family advised him. But he knew I wasn't ready and he decided to wait. It wasn't until after we bought the house I started to feel guilty about living in sin and not being married. Shortly after, he proposed (July 24th 2019). We set our date to November 15th 2020. This date is a little sooner than either one of us expected (I am a full-time student and work part time), but after he proposed and I we talked about it a little bit I went into full wedding planning mode. We have had some obstacles along the way, but we believe God is on our side and will allow us to get married on our date. Dispite everything, it is all coming together.


    2 years together 1 year engaged

    We knew each other for seven years before we started dating. Dated long-distance for 2 years. Were supposed to be engaged for 2 years, but thanks to covid we will now be engaged for 3 years before getting married.

    We had been friends since 2015 (when we started college). We started dating January 2018, started living together in May 2018 (we were already planning of getting an apartment together for senior year. It just meant looking for a one-bedroom instead of a two-bedroom), Then right before our 2nd anniversary he proposed! We are getting married in August 2021.

    So friends for almost 3 years, almost 2 years of dating, and 20 months engagement before marriage (fingers crossed never know with COVID).

    Met September 2015 his freshman year and my sophomore year at college, began to get close August 2017, started dating February 2018! We were pretty certain from the start, but had to give it a little time Smiley smile Two years later to the day, February 2020, he proposed! Now we're getting married February 2021! We might need to postpone the party, but we're getting married no matter what as we can't wait to move in and start the rest of life together Smiley smile

    We got engaged about 5.5 years of dating and living together nearly the entire time. We knew each for about a year before that. We鈥檒l be engaged 4.5 years before we are married. Partially because we just didn鈥檛 start planning and then Covid. Well be together just under 10 years when we do get married next October.
