Mixing of the Betrothed Couple

Question: A boy and girl are engaged to be married, but they already meet each other and go out with each other with the permission of their parents. Is this permissible?

Answer: An engagement is not marriage and it is therefore Haraam for the two to meet or to be in privacy. This is tantamount to fornication. If they are unable to stay away from each other, they should marry as soon as possible And Allaah knows best what is most correct.
