The Chinese typically were 2 years and Catholics about 6 months.

For those in arranged marriages like in India.
You can be engaged for years until you were a certain age then you would meet and marry and go through the ceremony.


They are not engaged.  They are betrothed to each other, sometimes since childhood.  That's totally different from a man making a public declaration of his intent to marry you and not having any plans to actually do it 5 years down the line.

EXACTLY. 

i seems a lot of women only want to be called wifey rather than having a marriage license. 




When people actually get the proposal they really understand it.......until then its a case of if it was me but it aint you and daydreaming is easy


No shade......

I understand but I think a lot of women never set expectations for their relationships. there are women out there who seriously believe they will not ever get married so when a guy moves in...they think that's as good as it gets. 

Couples that really want to get married, do it. Whether its a court house wedding with a fancy ceremony/destination wedding later...either way, they make it official.

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.

Gyal who are you talking about? Not everyone does that. I can only speak for myself, and I NEVER pretend like everything was perfect in my relationship. Truth is people change over time, and their true colors start to show over time. Which is when I left him, and haven't looked back since. Smile I dodged a bullet fah real
