Is 3 years too soon to get engaged?

I'm asking in reference to a conversation I had with a girlfriend the other day.

So, I have been with my boyfriend for 3 years. Now, our circumstance is a bit different than most people. I met him October 14th, 2017. We became completely inseparable and were together every single day. Started dating officially on November 1st, 2017 and we moved in together by November 6th. It was super quick but.. the reason we moved that quick is because on the 3rd, the bank showed up on my doorstep with an immediate vacate of the premises. Apparently my landlord's property was up for foreclosure so I had been paying on a property that wasn't even technically his anymore. So I was homeless. My boyfriend immediately moved me in. It was tough but we made it work.

Anyways, so we have been living together for 3 years. The entire time that we have known eachother practically and this guy, he's a fucking gem. I'm madly in love with him. We got on the topic of marriage the other day and he said he was looking at rings. It was more of a nonchalant comment than anything else but regardless, I was excited to find out he was looking and reached out to a girlfriend.

She basically said that I was making a mistake and that 3 years was far too soon to get engaged. What do you guys think?
