‘he went back to the valley to marry his fiancée’
‘‘It is the story of all the women left behind during the First World War — the sisters, the fiancées and the bereaved,’ said Jeannie.’
‘Ironically, most of the disappointed fiancées said that their beloved had spent over $300 on the proposal (not counting the ring.)’
‘Seung-hun wanted to break his prior engagement with his fiancée to marry Hye-kyo.’
‘And he is clinging to the hope that his fiancée, who he planned to marry in the summer, returns home safe and well.’
‘One tale tells of how in the time of Emperor ‘Claudius the Cruel,’ marriage was forbidden as men were unwilling to go to war leaving their wives, families or fiancées.’
