    A: I can’t believe you’re finally getting married.
    B: ____________________________________

    A. You’re bound to have second thoughts.
    B. It’s been years since we got together.
    C. Sure it’ll work out in the end.
    D. Yeah that took a long time to happen.
    B is certainly not a likely answer; D is the only good answer.

    With B we first have to assume that "we" refers to B and his/her future spouse, which is not unreasonable.
    Then we would have to change B to something like 'Yeah, it's been years since we first got together.', in order for it to be a good alternative.
