It is 8345 days from the start date to the end date, end date included
Or 22 years, 10 months, 3 days including the end date
Alternative time units

8345 days can be converted to one of these units:
  • 721,008,000 seconds
  • 12,016,800 minutes
  • 200,280 hours
  • 1192 weeks (rounded down)
It was another 2 months before she proposed.

27. It was a blind date. I fell in love. We got married the next year (1998). We've been fighting ever since.

Went to happy hour at a bar. She was the only one (besides me) at the table drinking dark beer.

I thought it was at 26, but that fell apart after 6 years.
The current status is 3 years with The Girl, and things are very good, so I'm answering 30-35 (with someone 10 years my seniour.)

I thought it was 22 but that fell apart (officially after 12 years, realistically much sooner).

Only been with the current one a bit over a year but I'm pretty sure he is it.
