This is a conversation that you should have with him. Lots of people have hypothetical talks like this, but just ask him, are we engaged now that we know when we want to be married?

He might want to do a proposal, it could have been a hypothetical talk, or you could be engaged.

The only person who can tell you that is him.

Congratulations! I got engaged in a similar way where we were talking about getting married and when I asked a few days later when he wanted to get engaged, he said “I thought we were engaged now”. Happy planning!

That’s very similar to my story! It was a discussion, not the big romantic proposal like some people have, but just as real and just as lovely and just as exciting. Congratulations!

Congratulations! I’m not sure if you’re engaged but I think it’s great anyway. I agree with Sansa85 though that you should discuss with him whether you both consider this an engagement or just a hypothetical talk leading to it.

I remember my now-husband asking me one day something like, “Maybe…if everything works out in the future…perhaps…would you consider marrying me?” I thought it was so cute and said of course.

Like you, I was also confused as to whether we were engaged or not. Later, we discussed our plans even more. It wasn’t until he had bought a ring and we had a date in mind and I was contacting possible officiants and we were making other concrete plans that I realized that maybe we were already engaged. We were LDR at the time and he insisted on proposing with the ring, so that happened later.

In all, I don’t know when we crossed that threshold between hypothetical discussions to a mutual agreement (engagement). But the proposal is still a special memory to me. I just don’t care much for the technicalities anymore.

Again, congratulations to whatever this may be!
