one of the main downsides of the word “fiancée” is that it doesn’t immediately communicate “engaged to a girl” when spoken aloud

which leads to “my fiancée” / “oh, who’s the lucky guy?” which is honestly pretty darned awkward


Ugh. I used fiancée and had to deal with the awkward exchange frequently. Even now when I mention my spouse, everyone wants to assume wife. 😡
