Do you favor or believe in long-term engagement?

Me and my boyfriend are already on its 9th year this 2007. We're planning to get married by January 2008. Do you think that a long-term engagement/relationship can be a basis of choosing your lifetime partner? What do you think?

I think it's really up to the people and your situation. If you aren't ready to get married or have responsibilities you need to take care of then I think a long term engagement is great. I always think it's best not to get married until you are completely ready. There is so much separation now that I think it might be smart.

It all depends on each other.you can meet a person for a week and can spend a lifetime with each other or you can spend years together and then one fine day just part ways..... Relationships need to be worked on .....its the quality that matters and not the number of years you have stayed together.

Oh I do think that you have had far too long a relationship but I am very happy that you are going to get married in January, as I hope and pray that my children never go this long with a long term relationship before they decide what they are going to do with their relationship, as I do not favour long-term relationship I prefer to be married and I am.
