'They have waited for so long' isn't accepted as an answer but the addition of 'for' to the phrase is quite common with English speakers.

Isn't the word «tant» so much rather than so long? I think the sentence could mean "they have been waiting so much" ?

Is this a situation in which the liason is deliberately left out: between tant and attendu?
