New years Eve 2005/2006 or if you mean how far into the relationship the 3 years after we met, 2 years after we were an official couple.

After 5 years but we'd already talked about getting married so it wasn't a big surprise.

Been married 6 years this year. Very happy indeed.

Proposed xmas eve 2008, we'd been together about 4.5 years. Seemed like I had to wait ages for a proposal (at the time) but we got together at 21/22 and so we're pretty young - engaged at 26/27 and married at 27/28. Seems young now (we're 34/35)!

31st August last year grin He proposed in front of Aira Force waterfalls in the lake district. We'd been together 4 years and just bought a house so was a surprise, but not a shock. smile

We got engaged on 21st February 1989. We knew we were going to get married, but he managed to surprise me on the day.

We'd been together about a year. One of our DC was born on that same day in February a few years later, so it's a special day for me.

About a year after dating. We were married the next year. We've now been together 3 years and married a year. Friends 10 years before that.

We were together just over 4 years when he proposed (on holiday) and married 18 months after that, just a few months before we were six years together. We've been married just over 4 years & our second child is officially due today! He's an amazing husband & I'm very lucky to have him. halo

On my birthday and our 5th anniversary of being together. We get married later this year!

A year after we met, under the water whilst scuba diving on holiday! We got married 4 months later. We celebrate our 2 year anniversary today and have a 14 month old DS!

He asked me numerous times - theoretically at first as his divorce wasn't sorted then increasingly so after it was, I always said I didn't want to get married again (been there, done that, failed).
He stopped asking (well you would), and I started realising I wanted to marry the man!
I spent Xmas day 2015 looking at him and thinking I was going to ask him when we went home. Driving home I asked if he was too drunk to have a serious discussion - he said yes, I said I'd talk to him in the morning then.
Next morning I'd not expected him to remember the car conversation, he worrieldly asked what I'd wanted to talk about.
I nervously asked if he still wanted to get married.
He couldn't have said yes quick enough grin

January 13th 2015. We met in April 2014 and got together in May 2014. We were trying for a baby from July 2014, and had discussed marriage and both knew we wanted it. We found out we were having a baby in December 2014 (conceived in November). He proposed in January 2015 (a few people thought it was bit because I was pregnant but that wasn't the case at all). We got married on the 9th of April 2015 (we wanted to be married before the baby was born and before I was showing). (Again some people thought we were mad for being married on the date we'd been together for 11 months, and for ttc after only being together such a short time, but we knew it was what we wanted, so went for it).
Now this year we've been together 3 years in May, married 2 years in April, and have a 19 month old. Couldn't be happier (and I'm only 24- people said I was too young for it all).
