Announcing an Engagement

Engagements and engagement announcements seem to be a thing of the past now. Most people don’t even hold an engagement party anymore and would just proceed on to the wedding dinner. So it was quite amusing to read in the newspaper classified column of an engagement announcement. In the olden times, I believe the announcement was made to inform the public and to allow anyone who didn’t agree to dispute it. I guess people just don’t want to take chances nowadays!
