Fiancé vs. Fiancée

I was looking up the correct spelling for the word that means a person engaged to be married and discovered that there are two different words depending on if you are male or female. A bride-to-be is a fiancée while a groom-to-be is a fiancé. Though originating from French with the accents, it seems that in English it is acceptablet to omit the accents. Though spelled differently, the pronounciation is the same.

Ah, the power of Google.
