Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to point out the legal nature, purpose and effects of the engagement prior to marriage in nowadays Romania, and also in old Romanian regulations, dating from the beginning of the XIX-th century. Equally, for a complementary perspective, the engagement prior to marriage as a religious institution will be briefly analyzed. In the final part, a conclusion will be pointed out, regarding the social perception of the engagement and also the reasons that made it a contemporary institution in Romania, despite the fact that it is not found in most modern Civil Codes.
