My aunt has been engaged for almost five years now but has yet to set a wedding date. A former coworker of mine has been engaged for three or four years. Why do some people get engaged if they don't plan to move forward with it?

I'm one of those:-). For some people that's enough of a sign of commitment for others like me, marriage is meaningless, its just a ring and piece of paper. I got engaged because my fiance asked me and I love him so I said yes. It was only when we sat down and talked about the actual wedding and planning it, we realized it didn't matter to either of us and that we really didn't see the point. He assumed that I wanted to get married and also believed he did and so he proposed, he proposed so I assumed he wanted to get married and thought it was what I wanted and said yes. We have no plans whatsoever to get married and have been engaged for 4 years and the more we talk about it the more irrelevant it is to us. If its not broken then why fix it0
