@Cornmuffin09:  I think you can say things along the lines of “you guys work so well together” or “you are such a great couple” without causing offence. “When are you two getting hitched?” or “When do you think you will pop the question/he hill pop the question/get engaged” can rub people the wrong way. I have a friend who is waiting who hates when people ask her when they will get engaged/married because she doesn’t know, and feels like the ball is out of her court. And I know he hates getting asked too because it just adds unnecessary pressure (they’ve been together 5.5 years and were waiting to be employed in their chosen fields, now that he has a job we’re not sure when he will propose).  I love hearing when my friends say things like “you and your FI have such a mature relationship” or “I hope my BF and I can form a bond as strong as you two have”. Those kinds of compliments are appropriate regardless of whether you’re dating/engaged/married.
