IMO an engagement means you are ready to marry and you start planning the wedding, set the date, etc....depending on how much time you need to plan your wedding the engagement could be very brief...or last a year or little longer...I think after 2 years and there is no date set that something is amiss.

Absolutely not, you either want to or don't want to.

And now everyone who lives together calls the SO their fiance.{#emotions_dlg.confused1}

That's fairly close to what I said to my son, much to my now-DIL's delight :-)

I didn't have a long engagement, and that worked out fine for me. A month after our wedding, DH got laid off from his job and we moved to Houston. Newly married, new state, new adventure, with plenty of jobs available. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup1}
