What about in situations where the marriage was arranged or forced? They may not necessarily have been engaged to be married?

Honestly I don't see why these questions are that complex.. I think most people know whether they've been engaged and/or married or not. I think DIAC just wants to know about our history of very committed relationships. As to why they need to know if one's been engaged or not, I don't know for sure. But I'm sure there's a good reason.

That's a good question. I'd say as soon as you know you're going to marry someone the engagement begins. But if it's arranged since birth then you can't really say you were engaged as a baby.. I'm sure you could just explain it in the additional information section of the form.

You have to assert to DIAC that you married your partner willingly... so forced marriages should not be applying anyway. Arranged marriages are different, but still - one person is agreeing to marry the other. Between the time the two partners agree and the time they are married, they are engaged.

I don't think the questions are to determine if you were engaged to your partner before you married him/her (of course you were!). I think it might be to determine if you have previously been engaged and not married that person. I had to submit details of partner's ex - name, birthday, dates of relationship, etc. and they were never married.
