Life events pose a unique challenge because each is a new or infrequent occurrence for which many people have little or no prior experience.
An engagement is no exception to this rule.
When planning your engagement a little dose of commonsense advice can help
Here is our advice on this topic.
|An engagement is the embarking of two people
on the road to marriage. Traditionally, it
is a commitment on both parties to each other.
And while it is not always so, the intent
is that the engagement will ultimately end
with the couple joined in matrimony.
Planning a wedding can be a very complicated undertaking and require many months of advanced preparation to reserve the hall, invite the guests, buy the dress, plan the ceremony, and complete all the other work required for the wedding to meet the couple's expectations. The engagement gives the couple time to make those arrangements with the mutually understanding that both are committing to being married..
The engagement is also a trial commitment of sorts. It gives the couple a last opportunity to ensure they want to be bound together legally and in the eyes of society before they actually are. Not all engagements end in marriage, and fortunately, it is far easier to disentangle the couple at this stage than after the marriage.
