Halocho #1615 - May one get engaged during the 3 weeks?

We learned that the destruction of the Bet Hamikdash (Temple) started on 17 Tammuz with the breaching of the walls, and ended 3 weeks later when it was set alight.

During this period of mourning, we do not get married.

Getting engaged is permitted during the 3 weeks.

Until Rosh Chodesh Av one may even celebrate with a festive meal, but without music and dancing. After Rosh Chodesh Av one may not have a festive meal, but one may serve refreshments.

One may even get engaged on a fast day, but no food may be served.

אֵין נוֹשְׂאִין נָשִׁים, אֲפִלּוּ מִי שֶׁעֲדַיִן לֹא קִיֵּם מִצְוַת פְּרוּ וּרְבוּ. אֲבָל לַעֲשׂוֹת שִׁדּוּכִין, אֲפִלּוּ בִּסְּעוּדָּה, מֻתָּר עַד רֹאשׁ חֹדֶשׁ אָב. וּמֵרֹאשׁ חֹדֶשׁ וָאֵילָךְ, אַף עַל גַּב דְּמֻתָּר גַּם כֵּן לַעֲשׂוֹת שִׁדּוּכִין, מִכָּל מָקוֹם אָסוּר לַעֲשׂוֹת סְעוּדָּה, אַךְ יְכוֹלִין לֶאֱכֹל מִינֵי מִרְקַחַת וְכַדּוֹמֶה
