I know what you mean. It bugs me when people are “married”, when they really aren’t. haha. When I got engaged I changed it, because I like to keep my profile updated, but it kind of wierded me out. Like I was bragging, or had to keep up to all the other people, so I deactivated my profile for a while until I wasnt so wierded out about it anymore.

When Fi and I got engaged I changed mine but I didnt have a wedding date or any planning in our heads for a LONG time… 

But In My Humble Opinion :Just because someone gets engaged doesnt mean they have to start planning the wedding right away…

@Coffee cup: I have seen this before also.

I was already engaged when I got facebook so I just made it to engaged as soon as I made it then changed it to married when we got home from our wedding!

@Coffee cup: It annoys me when people are ‘faux married’ on facebook (or engaged) and Mr.ND and I never did the joke engagement. After he proposed, we spent the night letting our friends and family that weren’t at the proposal know, and then we each updated our facebook status in the morning. Everyone knew that it was for real and there was a flood of congratulations and comments.

We put a 2 week “enjoyment lock” on ourselves, no planning for 2 weeks of being engaged. Once you start, it’s hard to stop! Hahah.

@MsPanda: Yea, we def didn’t start planning right away either! 

But I think Cash000’s point is people doing it for the heck of it? My sister is engaged & married a few times a year! LOL (She is 16, btw.)

I know what you mean too! I deactivated my facebook account about a year ago for personal reasons, but my Fiance is still on facebook. We got engaged on Saturday, but I told him he doesn’t have to change his status to “engaged” if he doesn’t want to, because I don’t want a barage of text messages from former friends who are still on his facebook friends list. Ya know? So I’m sure he’ll change it eventually, but I’m really not concerned about it.

I never had mine as “married” or “in a relationship” as a joke. I changed mine to engaged a couple of days after, I wanted to tell some people before I just went ahead and announced it on FB. I do notice though, that some younger people I know put married or engaged to people they’re dating. It’s kinda weird.

Yes, on April Fool’s Day my fiance (boyfriend at the time) changed our FB relationship status to engaged as a joke but changed it back the next day. In past relationships I’ve had my FB relationship status as engaged if it’s been a while just for fun.

When my fiance and I got engaged we changed our FB status to engaged. It backfired when his sisters had to find out about our engagement via FB due to him serving overseas in the military he had only shared the news with his dad. Just make sure everyone knows you’re engaged before the FB statuses hurt someone’s feelings. Needless to say we no longer are apart of FB because it causes drama for us LOL.

@Coffee cup: Oh i get it I thought you were knocking someone who were engaged but not planning I was thinking to myself oh my me and fi got engaged in 2007… lol

I have 2 friends who say they are married (well they did until one of them got in a relationship) It is kinda a inside joke in our group so I understood it…

No offence to anyone who does it but yes, I have friends that changed their status to “married” when they weren’t and got all kinds of what omg really? attention. whatever floats their boat. i posted a pic of my ring when Fiance proposed but only AFTER I had spoken to all my friends and fam first. so it was like a couple days later. I did change my status on fb too. Fiance was very adimant about me being “engaged” and not just ” in a relationship” lol! Something about ” oh yeah I call her my wife but we’re not really married but we’ve been together for 15 years” that grates me. Only because i would go insane being with someone for so long without the sacremant of marriage. but I know I am opinionated about it and I really dont think its WRONG, its just so not for me personally:)

My female roommate and I used to have our status as “it’s complicated” as a joke. I’m not sure if this counts though, since we also clearly stated that we were both into men.
