There are probably other engagement/marriage classes in your area.  That one is probably preferred since its your church, but others host them.  We did one that had several classes throughout the year held at different churches depending on when you went.  It was a day and we had booklets and really meaningful discussions.  Because it’s a state program, attending the class got you like $60 off your marriage license too.  But we didn’t get married here, so that didn’t really apply to us (though on a side note, a marriage license in Tx is like $67 and in LA it was only $28 crazy).

Our pastor suggested that we take the pre-marriage class before we were engaged.  They think its better to talk through all the things before you decide if you want to marry someone or not.  That was a somewhat awkward conversation at first- ‘hey, pastors wife asked us if we want to take the pre-marriage class- she said we don’t have to be engaged.”  He said yes to that pretty quickly though.  Maybe you should suggest to your pastor that they change it to Marrieds, engaged, or thinking about marriage.  Then he wouldn’t get hung up on the word engaged.

I was in your situation for awhile though- we had decided we were going to get married, I knew he was getting the ring, we started planning the wedding, but he didn’t consider it engaged.  I think that if you have decided to get married and started wedding planning, you are engaged.  Boys can be silly sometimes 😉

Sorry if this is a stupid question but if he proposed and you’re engaged, then why won’t he let you have the ring?
