I wanna get married at some point soon but monay is a bit of an issue because we're both still at uni. Luckily I know a few people who've made the leap first which is good, some even have children. My main worry is that we'll end up one of those couples who are engaged for like a million years.

I think if you KNOW you both want to be together forever, and you both know between you what you want then I think you're mature enough to get engaged. I think marriage takes a lot of consideration after this but hey the engagement isn't going to expire
I do agree that sharing time living together first may well give you a better idea of whether it would be right, but it's not essential.
I know a lot of people say it's no rush and no it isn't but if you're both ready then why wait? Marriage should wait till you're ready financially but again engagements don't expire
OP have you saved for the ring yet? (or other...) If you haven't then do so... and you still have plenty of time to make sure it's right. (and if it isn't then you have some savings )
Good luck, and get back to us?

getting engaged will do no harm and is a nice official bonding thingy, but if you guys love each other youll last the wait of a few years, yunno, just to make sure.

Theres a difference for me between when you get engaged and when you get married...
Although i personaly would prefer to get engaged and married in quick succession if you get me, not wait 4 years!
Maybe... get engaged at 20, married by 21/22 for me i think. that would be the youngest id consider it
