About engaged
An engagement or betrothal is the relationship between two people who want to get married, and also the period of time between a marriage proposal and a marriage. During this period, a couple is said to be fiancés (from the French), betrothed, intended, affianced, engaged to be married, or simply engaged. Future brides and grooms may be called fiancée (feminine) or fiancé (masculine), the betrothed, a wife-to-be or husband-to-be, respectively. The duration of the courtship varies vastly, and is largely dependent on cultural norms or upon the agreement of the parties involved.
Long engagements were once common in formal arranged marriages, and it was not uncommon for parents betrothing children to arrange marriages many years before the engaged couple were old enough. This is still common in some countries.

McGregor and Devlin have been in a relationship since 2008 – long before the fighter was dominating the octagon in UFC. He’s thanked her countless times for staying by his side through his journey.

“My girlfriend worked very hard throughout the years and stuck by me when I had essentially absolutely nothing,” he’s previously said, according to The Mirror. “I only had a dream that I was telling her. For me to be able to take her out of work, give her everything she’s ever wanted, and to travel the world with her fills me with pride. It keeps me going.”

McGregor has said his life may have been different if Devlin wasn’t around.

“My girlfriend has been there since the start. She has helped me throughout this career. If It wasn’t for her, I probably wouldn’t be where I am today.”
