Since then I have come across this phenomenon dozens of times, almost always in working-class couples, and usually younger ones. But what they mean is more like my “steady lady” or my “steady man.” It could mean the person they are living with, or the father or mother of their child.

Engagement is not a promise to marry, but rather an indication that they are thinking about it.People no longer think of a wedding as a milestone that happens somewhere between high school and having children.They think of marriage as what sociologists call a “capstone”—that is, something they earn after many other things are in place in their lives, like a good job or a nice house.First, he will go to Nebraska to visit his family and then he will come and see me in Kentucky. Their travel arrangements are made and paid for by the government. Claiming to be deployed for three years is a play for your pity. These people know you and they are not blinded by love.I’m supposed to pay ,500 in fees to his unit so they can release him, and he will give me the money when he comes home and goes to his bank, Wells Fargo.
