The definition of a fiancé is a male who is engaged to be wed.
An example of a fiance is a man whose girlfriend just said "yes" to a marriage proposal.
A man to whom one is engaged to be married.
Origin of fianceFrench, from past participle of fiancer, to betroth, from Old French fiancier, from fiance, trust, from fier, to trust, from Vulgar Latin *f&imacron;dare, from Latin f&imacron;dere; see bheidh- in Indo-European roots.
- Traditionally, the spelling fiancé is used for a man who is engaged, with fiancée being the female counterpart. (This is a reflection of the corresponding distinction in French.)
