    Just wondering how long people waited before getting married, or if you decided not to. Went home over the weekend and got a lot of family asking when we're getting married/ engaged/ pregnant! We've been together 3 and a half years, and we are going to do all of the above- but not just now :rolleyes: Silly family pressure!

    So what about you lot?

    Hopefuly the poll will work- bear with me, haven't done one before!

Need to squeeze in tons of travel and stuff before then...gotta get married sharpish too if everything is to go according to plan! Wanna go to Disneyworld before we've got a baby in tow!

    Not married yet, but hoping to get engaged this year (he's still got 9 months left. :lol:)

    In June we'll have been together 3 years. I'm still studying so won't be getting married until that's out the way, so we'd probably be together 5 years before we get hitched.

    As above, wanna travel and go to Disneyworld before babies!! And due to money etc don't want to pop em out until been married at least a year, so about 25/6. (I'm 22 now!)

    A friend of mine got enaged when they'd been together 6 months, and married a year later. That is waaaaay to soon imo. They were friends for a year or so first, but not overly close. She was 22 when she got married last summer.

    Got engaged after 3 weeks.

    Got married at 20 months because we had to wait for his divorce to go through otherwise it would have been much sooner.

    It's been nearly 3.5 years now and I still love him to bits!!! :D

    Sometimes ya just know!!

    lol i'm still not married. Been engaged for almost 2 years and we roughly decided on waiting another 4-6 as we're still young(20 this year for both of us) and we need to save up. We will have been together for 4 years on the same date as our engagment(propsed to me on our anniversary). Neither of us are that bothered about when but we do want to marry someday :eek:

    :lol: I saw my friend yesterday for lunch and to meet her twins again (4 months old, A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!) And she told me that before she knew she was pregnant she went onto a rolercoaster with her man, as it looked pretty tame and she's not a fan of them generally- but it was a twisty-turny-jerky, uppy-downy jobbie, so her OH's favourite story of how they got twins was that the force of the ride split the cells! :lol:

    so be warned! :lol: :D

    We have been together for 31 years in May this year. First 24 were a nightmare until i got the courage to kick him out. Then realised that it was not just him. I started work full time and changed my life doing things in my spare time such as working voluntary in a wildlife centre which i wanted to do but thought he wouldn't approve. We got back together after a month and i think that he realised i had changed so he had to. He stopped going out everynight and only goes at weekends.
    We have a great life now and talk so much. He still makes me laugh and i would not swop him for the world.
    He loves my animals and thats the main thing.
