How long did you date?
Before you got married?
DH and I are usually the exception, but we dated for 7 years before we got engaged (1 year) so technically 8 years of dating!
We met in college and both wanted to "be single", finish college, get good jobs and be somewhat secure before we tied the knot. After school, we were both enjoying ourselves and in no rush to get married-everyone else was though! I think it was a great decision, as we have long since worked past all the little annoyances when you first get together, and we definitely know each other well!
