One year. We got engaged at six months. We had also known each other for about five years before we started dating, so we felt like we knew each other well enough at that point to make the commitment. Had he been someone I just met, I wouldn't have gotten married at one year.

3.5 years, because we did not have the money to get married. Wanted to have some kind of wedding, we eloped and had a small wedding.

Ten years, we got married when she was pregnant with our second kid. Money prevented us from getting married sooner.

I estimate it'll be around 5 years. We got engaged after 6 months, but it's not optimal for us to get married. We're both still in college, so he's covered by his parents medical insurance. If we get married, he won't be, so for the sake of logic and saving money, we haven't done it yet. Soon though!

We made the decision to get married about 3 months into our relationship, and saved to have a wedding that happened about 2 years into the relationship.

I was in High School when we started dating. We went through years of an Open Relationship, then when I was in my last semester of college, we got engaged and got married shortly after that.

I was with my ex for 2 years before we got engaged...then we were engaged for a year...then we split up. I'm pretty sure the cold feet got the best of him since it was only a few weeks before the wedding.

We've been together without marriage some years into a decade. I joke that no one should get married until a decade has passed! Sorry, I couldn't resist sharing.

When I was younger I was pretty against marriage--at least for me. Very happy years passed in this relationship, my opinion of marriage started thawing. There are practical reasons why it is desirable. I get the feeling that He has been waiting on me to say something for a while. It probably would be good to have a more serious discussion about it, but no huge hurry here. No one is going to escape (marriage shouldn't be used to trap!!).

We met our freshman year of college (Sep. 1978) and married August 9th, 1979. Been married ever since.

Hasn't always been great or even good - but we made it through a lot of tough times and are madly in love and committed to each other now - over 32 years later.

I'm not really a fan of marriage. It doesn't have a lot of benefit, and it complicates things on so many levels. I'm not in s serious relationship right now, but when I am it'll be at least three our four years before I even THINK about marrying. MINIMUM! Coming from a family where divorce is common, I know how difficult it can be. Divorce is much much harder than a simple breakup (not that those are ever simple either).
