It’s not always the MAN that doesn't want to get married, sometimes it’s the Woman. I know because I was in that situation. I was engaged for a few yrs. but I never was really excited about setting a date. Looking back God was trying to warn me. Thank God I was able to dodge the bullet.

Just because 2 people are engage, or in a relationship doesn’t mean everything is cupcakes, and Starburst. Ultimately people should do what is best for them according to their situation, not society’s standards of how things should be done.  

 


then they shouldn't be parading around pretending to have cupcakes and starbursts.

LOL

5 years keeps her mind that she is just one step from marriage and for me it's the barrier that allows me to keep evaluating if marriage is really for me while I get a home cooked meal and sex in the regular.

Why be engaged if both people are not prepared to be married in the near future?

An engagement is a promise of marriage and the preparation time.
It's saying you're the one so let's prepare for our lifetime together.


I don't think an engagement should last forever but I don't think there is a precise time limit either

Whatever the ppl involved feel..

When there's too much familiarity, people tend to take each other for granted. He keeps stringing her along with "hope". He don't wanna marry her. And she should move on.

Traditionally there has always been a precise time limit.  Engagement is a formal declaration of an intent to marry, and the manner of legitimizing that intent is to actually do something about it.  In most cultures across the board people are married within 1 yr of being engaged.
