I have been exclusive with my SO for about 15 months and we are ready to go to the next level. We have already picked a venue, guest list, budget, destination and month to get married! We have an appointment next week to consult with our attorney and disclose all financial information. My family adores him and vice versa. However, he says that he wants to wait until March to propose?! If we don’t need to save money for the ring or the wedding why are we waitng? What’s the point? I already feel like we are engaged, we have a date set and he talks about the wedding all the time! Where is the ring?!

I would say you are already engaged. You don’t have to have a ring on your finger to be engaged. Mabye he has a plan that can’t play out until March. He might be taking you somewhere or have plans to propose during a special event. He could also have a plan to give it to you sooner and it trying to throw you off the trail by saying March. I would continue planning the wedding and be patient and know it’s coming.

IMHO you aren’t engaged until he asks.

For me I am not engaged until he formally asks with a ring – even though we both know it is a sure thing and when etc. I told him I would not formally announce it until he asks with a ring bc otherwise everyone will be like, where is the ring? how did he ask? and i will just feel more official that way.
