@MsTique:  I think you can KNOW you’re getting married in the future, but I don’t think you are officially engaged until there is a ring, or at the very least a proposal, even if the proposal is without a ring. i think your boyfriend is just silly! If you’re confused about your status though, the easiest thing to do would be ask your boyfriend!

I dont think I would “feel” or think Im engaged if I was you. He is probably preparing himself to propose though. Sounds like he will get a ring soon and pop the question 🙂

I think that “planning to get married” and “engaged” are sometimes the same thing and sometimes different things.  It depends on the 2 people involved and whether they are really truly on the same page of where they are vs. where they’re going.  For example, I would say no, you are not engaged.  It has nothing to do with a ring, by the way. It does have to do with the very specific conversation about being/getting engaged.  There can be a proposal question or there can be a discusscion.  In my case there was no “proposal” there was just a conversation during which we decided to get married.

In your case it sounds like you need to have a sit-down conversation and make it clear so that you both agree and understand about your relationship status and future plans.

I think we’re the wrong people to ask if you’re engaged 😉  Sounds to me that you should just ask your boyfriend if he truly considers himself engaged to you. 

You certainly don’t need a ring to be engaged, but I think an official proposal is a necessity.
