Between boyfriend or girlfriend and husband or wife is "fiancé" or "fiancée," a pesky little word with an accent mark (and two Es if you're talking about a woman). For many people, getting to utter this word is one of the perks of being engaged. Recently, Christina Ricci revealed that being able to say "fiancé" is her favorite thing about being engaged.
According to Ricci, who debuted her ring in February, "People take you so much more seriously once you start throwing around that word." That's probably true, but I always felt weird about using the short-lived status label, like I was bragging or something. But maybe that's just me; how does it make you feel?
