    How Long Were You Engaged For?

    Advertisements
    I've no real reason for asking. Just curious and probably a bit bored. I've always thought 1 to 2 years would be what I would want but I have no real reason for feeling like that and I'm not even sure if I care anymore.

    18 months. We probably would have made it closer to 12 months but he was deployed so it threw a wrench in our plans, and where I am from, all the good places are booked a year-two years in advance anyway.

    Three weeks between getting engaged and getting married, no wedding. 2/10 would not recommend this method.

    No engagement. I think he may have jokingly asked me to marry him the morning of the day we got married.

    He asked me to marry him while he was at basic... Then we got married the week when he was home before we left for our first duty station. I think that was like... a month or two? We hadn't even known each other for a year before we got married

    When you know, you know.

    18 months. He was in a transitional point in his career and we waited to get a better idea of his schedule for the next 1-2yrs. 6 months after he proposed, we picked our date.

    About a month.

    He was deployed when they were told that they were going home early to re-arm the ship and immediately deploy again. He told me he wanted to get married before he deployed. He got home 2 weeks later, and we were married 2 weeks after that.

    Less than 1 month of engagement for us. No big wedding just kinda randomly picked a day to go down to the courthouse.

    Dh asked me to marry him in December of 2009, and we were married by January 11, 2010. Also, we'd been together as a couple for about 4 months when we got married.
    Signature removed due to size.
