Is 21 too early to get engaged?
20 and 21 is not too young to get engaged. You are already a stable couple, and as you plan a long engagement, I would have no problem with your plan if I were your parent. I think that you can get engaged if you want to. If possible I recommend that you live together for a year and a day.
Is 19 a good age to get engaged?
No, do not get engaged that young. Every once in a while there is a couple that gets engaged young and it’s the right choice and they live happily, or at least make it work for the rest of their lives. In most cases though, you’re going to change drastically from the age of 19 to 23, much less 30, 45, 60.
