For us it meant we were ready to make the commitment so we were in a state of prep for that commitment.

it means we’re already married—i overheard someone call me his “wife” about a week ago and he just went right along with the conversation haha.

but really, its like we’re married and are waiting 10 months (from today woohoo!) to throw a party and take an awesome trip.

I agree with the above posters in that we both feel like we are married already. To me, the engagement has always been more about everyone on “the outside” than the couple….as in, you clearly already know how YOU feel about eachother…now it is just time for the world to know. It has been a lot about preparations, too, like any other major life change. Lots of planning and preparing for our lives once we are legally joined (insurance, bank accounts, etc.)

I am not engaged yet, but to me, getting engaged will simply mean that we are making it official that we want to spend our lives together. We are already 100 % committed to each others, so getting engaged won’t really change anything in that respect.

interesting…..i don’t feel like i’m married just b/c I am engaged.  To me, it means we have chosen each other to be married to very soon.

yeah N and i have different opinions as well.

for me, engaged is publically commiting yourself to eachother and beginning to plan the rest of your life together.

for him, it’s when you buy a dress and walk down the aisle (ideally he’d be engaged for like, 3 months)

That we’re committed to spending our life together and can start planning for our future, starting with the ceremony that will make it official! All the other projects came after the wedding that is our first step into marriage!

To me it means that we’ve officially decided that we want to commit for life (instead of just ‘oh we’ll get married some day”) and we’re working towards making it happen

Engagement for us means that we’re making a commitment. We’d get married tomorrow if it wouldn’t be a disappointment to our families. So it just means we’re in the planning phase for the wedding and continuing to develop the relationship.

Committed to taking the next step in our relationship, and spending the rest of our lives together. Engaged means this is the right person for me!
