Me and my bf are together for 2 years so far. Before starting the relationship we both stated we're looking for long term commitment. Now that we are transferring to different univeristies in different states, should we get engaged before we start to be long distance, even though it means our wedding is in 5+ years from now? We love each other a lot.

Wow, what you are proposing is going to be very difficult to maintain the loving relationship you have now. The fact that you are engaged isn't going to make your love survive a long distance relationship over a long period of time, the level of commitment that could take is astronomical. Not knowing either of you it's pretty difficult to even come up with an opinion other than it will be hard so hard that the relationship may not survive.
My fiancé and I will be getting married in July, meh is at university this year while I finish up H. S. and Community College, we see each other every weekend. I can tell you this year so far has been the absolute hardest the separation has been difficult at times for both of us, we talk every day but it's not the same as feeling his touch. It's so hard letting him go every Sunday night, knowing that I won't be seeing him until Friday , I've cried myself to sleep plenty of times already. I can't imagine not being able to see him even on the weekends, I'm afraid I'd be a wreck and not able to concentrate on my own studies. Not trying to talk you out of it, just trying to make you see some reality. More power to you if you can and do make it work. Try getting into same college would be better.0
