Can you be engaged to a married man even though...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

He is still married and the divorce has not been finalized yet. Can I still call him my fiancé or boyfriend until everything goes through?

I hope you don't live in a state with Alienation of Affection or Criminal Conversation laws.

It's just a title that you give him, it's not a legal title or status in any way because the law has nothing to do with it.

So, if he asked and you said yes then he would have that title.

Lol my best friend got her bfs sons name tattooed on her back before they were even engaged.
I openly told her it was the dumbest fucking thing she's ever done. They are married now but I still think it was dumb.

 What a mess, I don't know why more women don't expect better treatment than a man with baggage and unfinished business....

Engagement is not a legal term, so use it however you like.

I did. Dh's divorce was final a month after we met. It's up to you.

My mom was engaged to her DH about 5 months before his divorce was final. They got married about 10 days after. She wore the ring everywhere she went from the day he proposed and she referred to him as her fiance. 

I don't necessarily approve and I don't think it was the best example to me (I was 12 at the time). They are still married.

Quoting MissMysteriouss:

Yep. If he asked you to marry him and you have a ring. You are as much engaged as any one else.

Sometimes it takes years for a divorce to be finalized.



Agreed. I was engaged before my divorce was finalized. My idiot ex delayed as much as he could to make it as difficult as possible on me.

You could call him king lalabooboo if you wanted. It's just a title you give him. Sometimes I still say my husband is my boyfriend lol.

I wouldn't start a relationship with someone who isn't legally single.
