Tie the grammar knot: Fiancée vs. fiancé

Writers who engage in the use of these two words sometimes find themselves a little red-faced when their writing comes before an audience.

fiancée is a woman who is engaged to be married while a fiancé is a man who is engaged to be married. The easy way to remember them as that “female” has two e’s in it, as does fiancée, while “male” has one e, as does fiancé.

Follow that simple rule, and you’ll get the spelling right until the day you die.
