THIS. The time is to prepare for the ceremony. If you wanna marry me, wtf are we waiting 1,2,5 or 10 years to make it legal? The court marriage don't cost much.

SUMMARY:

*understand that the traditional engagement is not just a formal announcement of the intention to marry, it is the start of a wedding planning process that will take 0-12 months normally, 18 months max (if folks have to fly in etc).

*Anything aside from the above is dating with a ring on and the people likely are not really sure or could covertly be weighing their options or looking to get the partner to move in, split the bills, have marital style boundary free sex & homemaking without the formal commitment of a marriage license.

Nah, I want to finish all of schooling first and I don't want a long engagement. But we do talk about when and the year.

He says he has the proposal set up in mind.

I told him to do it in public with his family so I can shame him and say no.
I'll playing with him though.

He's my one. No doubt
