"This has become a huge issue between my fiancee and I"???

A huge issue for I?

between my fiancee and ME!!! Learn basic English!

Thank you for your comments. it is getting dumber and dumber. Listen to the TV announcers - they can't even speak correctly. OMG - glad I'm in the last half of my lifespan; dont' know if I can take 70 more years of poor grammar.


Whenever I hear someone refer to themselves as "I," it makes me cringe.
