Future Intended is redundant. It doesn’t make sense, you’re right. But whatevs.

@LindsayMaree:  That is exaclt her point. Your intended husband is your fiance so future intended husband is your future fiance, technically.

@redheadem:  I’ve always been a little confused by the phrase “future intended,” too.  Same thought process as you over here.

I was always confused.  And it took me forever to figure out DD or DS or DH. I had to google it.

Same things as “pwned” i guess.  I had to google that too lol.

I think FI is fiancé (also pronounce FI as feee like a PP) and I have been caught a few times in real life calling him FI instead of fiancé  hehe very embarrassing…

I always thought it meant Fiance until I read it meant Future Intended. I agree with @FutureMsVW:  in that I always think of Fiance when I write it an pronounce it as fee in my mind!
