    I waited for 2 and a half years and he said he wasn't sure he ever wanted to get married because his parents had such a bad marriage. I told him that I was going to have to start dating others because I wasn't going to wait forever. He said that he understood. I got a date the next day and he freaked out!!! I went away for the weekend by myself and when I came back he proposed and groveled and couldn't live without me. We've been married for 24 years now and he said that he didn't realize how stupid he was being. I think two years is plenty unless you are really young. Sometimes you don't know what ya got til it's gone. lol

    Daughter was engaged, we weren't crazy about him but she was. Their engagement ended because he wasn't faithful. She waited two years. I wasn't looking to get married but we did when the time felt right. It will be 22 years in July.

    the amount of time I have no clue..........I have two failed marriages so I am no friggen authority on marriage............however there is a length of time that could be construed as leading someone on..........never ending promises.......

    I guess it depends on where you are in life. If you are both out of college and on your own, I'd say two or three before I started dropping hints, longer than that and I would wonder if something was up.

    You better tell me if you get a ring! ;-)

    I like the name addition by the way! :)

    length of time of propose, good question, depends on their goals. But once engaged the wedding should be quick. I do not like the shut them up engagements

    Did you live together before you got married?

    No we both had our own houses. We just enjoyed each other's company and traveled when we could. She worked early hours and I worked later hours so we didn't have that much time together back then. I knew it would be a long time, a lot of money and work for us to join forces as one. Now we both don't work and are still best friends living in one house after fixing up both and saleing one.

    I think it depends on the couple. My husband and I dated for a month and then he proposed to me. So it just depends.

    Do not rush it... it is much easier to take the time to know a person you plan on spending the rest of your life with then to rush into something that cost a lot more then the relationship to end. I know...

    True story, three years I either married them or it ended for one reason or another. I have been divorced twice if that tell you anything. Everyone is different, and everyone has their reasons, but if he's not ready... you need to think this through, and if you're not ready you need to do the same. Like I said, it is cheaper to know how both of you feel now, verses later, honest. And please tell me no babies involved....

    Well my thoughts on that, is why would you want to marry someone who isnt ready to be married. To me it is just kind of setting yourself up for failure. Dont get it wrong, I love being married and all, however, honestly if both of you are in love with eachother, a marriage certificate is just a piece of paper.

    It depends how old she is. If older than 28, no more than two years. I think no on shuld wait beyond thirty if you want to have children.

    What if she is in her 30's and has been waiting for over 3 years but children are not a factor?
