2019 Fiancees

The term fiancée doesn't mean anything anymore. When I was younger, most divorce happened in the mid 30s and above. My generation, I'm mid 30s and most people I know now have had multiple fiancées and almost use the term to over embellish boyfriend/girlfriend. It's gotten to the point that when someone tells me they have a new fiancée I almost assume it won't end in marriage. None of them do.

Gives it a nice marketing zing.
The "fiancee" can have a bunch of "last flings", as people try to get some in before person goes "off the market". Especially effective for women, since d is a cheap commodity nowadays.
Break up, give it a while, do it all over again.
Spice up an otherwise humdrum existence.
Brilliant.

but in my friends group (mid 30s), most of them are happily married and have been married for 5-10 years. Nobody divorced, and unlikely to be. Marriage requires maturity, commitment and hard work. Cynical people shouldn't get engaged/married since they tend to give up.
