This is EXACTLY how we did it too! By the next week we were picking out rings, bought the ring and he “proposed” with it when he gave it to me.

Not every proposal needs to be an elaborate romantic affair, even though that’s what comes to mind when we hear the word, but realistically a proposal is a ‘suggestion put forward for consideration by others’. You proposed that you marry next spring and he counter proposed that it be the end of the year. Congratulations, you’re engaged!

We decided to marry in much the same way, while watching morning cartoons and eating cereal.

Congrats. Love this, sounds like a very sensible conversation with no drama and total agreement. Sounds perfect to me!

I love this – Congratulations!!

browneyedgirl24 :  I wonder if most people consider being engaged to mean actively wedding planning.  My SO and I know we want to get married, but we’re waiting for him to get a full-time job before we announce an engagement…it’s frustrating not knowing exactly when it will be!  It sometimes feels like being engaged when you both agreed you want to marry each other.

grackle :  My guy and I have already discussed it – does that mean that we are engaged? I’m so confused.

fairydust91 :  Maybe it depends on the couple and what they think engagement means.  My boyfriend and I discussed it, but it doesn’t mean we are engaged.  He thinks that being engaged means having a wedding date set, but I always thought it meant that both people plan on being married someday without a date necessarily being set…so until we set a date, we aren’t engaged.
