    Breaking an engagement

    Say you got engaged and after that you started having second thoughts or getting cold feet, is it morally or ethically right to break the engagement?

    Gosh, I don't really know. In a sense it would be right to break it off if you weren't 100% sure...rather than to go ahead with it and have problems later on but then again, can you be 100% sure about anything?

    On the other hand.. I think it would be kind of wrong because you should think all that stuff through before you actually agree to it. And it isn't fair on the other person if you're gonna just turn around and break it off

              yes; i would say break it if your not happy. no point in ruining two lives and subsequent childrens' lives if your not happy with your spouse-to-be.

                what is the real reason of breaking it off...is it cold feet(just nervousness) or more then that?

                  The thing is, marriage is a risk no matter what angle you look at it from. You can try and calculate that risk but its just a try and in the end just as much of a gamble as an arranged marriage would be.

                  People get cold feet all the time, its a reality. However, it is just that...cold feet and nothing more.

                  I would make a list of pros and cons and take it from there.

                    it depends upon the situation and reasons why any one wanna break up the engagement. i wonder why ppl get engaged when they're not pretty sure abt their partner to be, wether they can get by or not.

                    I personally feel it brings pain for both
                    Breaking up is'nt a gud idea.......... unless their is a strong reason behind

                      i think its not ethically right to break up with someone.......every relationship needs some time to grow fully mature....

                        In our families, once you gave "ZABAAN" then you've to stick to it no matter how worse is the situation!

                        You have been asked once, later whats the point of playing with other's life! Just because of the cold response or nervousness? Com'on.. who guarantees you you wouldnt face it the next time... Get out of bollywood films

                          lots of things in this world happen which are unethical. tho phir yeh kya cheez heh.

                          waise if someone starts to feel this way in the engagment period only is this not strange. engagment period is supposed to be happy and dreamy. problems start after the wedding not before. if htey start before i think maybe those problems might be abnormal adn signalling that you might be heading for danger. better to save yourself now.

                          and it certainly bery well may be pâinful to othe other party but it is your life and you have a right to look after your own interests.

                            Its better to break off an engagement than enter into a messy marriage.

                              its ofcourse nt fair to the other person but it wud be better to do this now than later when u end up married n have kids....that wud be worse much worse. But do make sure that you are sure abt what you want and are not just nervous about the whole situation and tryin to get away.
