    Default Fiancé or Fiancée?

    Are these spellings interchangeable? Do they mean the same: a person who's engaged to marry?

    Or maybe one makes reference to an engaged woman and the other to an engaged man -in which case, which is which?

    a man engaged to be married : le fiancé
    a woman engaged to be married : la fiancée

    feminine usually takes an extra "e"
    even in a name like René, girl's name : Renée
