What did you do when waiting for engagement?

What did you guys do when you were waiting for an engagement? I got on Google the other day, and apparently, it’s a whole thing. Our Four years is coming up, and I think it’s just about time.

Have you talked to your partner about it?

I made it clear in the first month that I was dating to find a husband. I wouldn’t be a girlfriend long so decided if that’s also your end goal because I don’t want to go further with someone who don’t have the same goals in the relationship.
We were engaged within a year and married before 2.

I’m never going to get engaged…been together 7 years. Moved in together 3 months after starting dating. Have a combined checking account and Bill’s and have a 4 year old son but he keeps saying he wont propose unless we can afford a wedding. I dont know how to make him understand I just want a damn ring and to be able to call him something besides my boyfriend. Ugg

I don’t believe in divorce, I don’t believe marriage is a step but I DO believe in marriage, in the promise, that each person has to make the choice on their own that it’s something they want. If it had to be pushed and forced he/she who had to be convinced didn’t really want it they are only doing it for you. I waited twelve and a half years for the engagement and married two weeks after our 13 years together anniversary, long wait but the happiest life.

My husband and I met july of 2005 by December we were engaged then married Feb 2006
still married

After 1.5 years I told him I loved him, I wanted him, but I had to have a reason to stay (in our tiny middle of nowhere town) He proposed 3 weeks later and we married that summer. Celebrated 11 years married this year.

I don’t know that I understand the question? You have to make your wants and needs known to your partner on what you’re looking for out of a relationship. If you’re 4 years in and you havent made what you want or need known it might be a problem.

It depends couple to couple my husband and me meet in june he asked me to marry him when he was drunk 2 months later I laughed an said ask me when ur sober less then a month later he ask me to marry him on a camping trip as he put it he knows I’m the one he wants to drive him crazy for the rest of his life jan. Of this year we pushed up our engagement cause we found out we were gonna have our son ( my first his 4th long story) an I knew i wanted to get married befor i was showing to much so we got married in feb 3 days b4 my birthday an even tho sometimes we drive eachother crazy we wouldnt have it any other way we celebrate 1 year together an our son will be roughly 5 months come our 1 year anniversary next year but i guess what I’m saying is u know when u know and if you think you guys are ready talk to him tell him hey no pressure but i feel we may be ready to take the next step an see how he feels u never know i knew from day one cause we had been talking as friends an I hit a low point an told him at 2 am I felt like driving my car into the pond an ending it all an he took no time at all to get to my place an we ended up staying up all night talking an we have been damn near together from that day on an I wouldnt change it bad days an all

I think it’s important to be on the same page when it comes to marriage. My husband and I became engaged after 2 years together and then we were engaged for 2 years before we married. So yeah, 4 years later for us but it never felt unnatural or forced.

You could always propose.

My birthdays coming up and hes been dropping some hints but I can tell you if it doesnt happen by this time next year he is getting ultimatum cause I’m about to be 28 and i want to be married before im 30!

We dated for 3 months, engaged for 3 and got married after 6 months total together. We have been together 5 years. It was quick and we have had our rough spots where we didn’t think we would make it but we love each other more now than ever. If he is your best friend and your willing to continue to wait fine but if you know you know. :heart:
