This has been an issue with me for some time and was posted on facebook over a year ago (before I got engaged). I always had a problem with females who are hype to get married, and for some reason, it seems like the level of “hypeness” has increased recently. It drives me crazy! Since when did being in a relationship with someone for a long time, living with your mate or having a baby by someone equals being engaged. If you complete college, your degree or transcript provides validation. If you drive a car, a driver’s license can decide if you are or are not riding dirty. If you are married, your marriage license is proof. If you are engaged your RING proves it! Simple. No rocket science here readers. People use the word “engaged” like they say “boyfriend” or “girlfriend”. Am I tripping or do you not need a ring with someone asking you a question? Is that played out? Is that old fashion? STOP LYING! He is your boyfriend, or she is your girlfriend. Ladies, if he wants to marry you, you will receive a ring with a question. Until then, STOP IT! UGH!
