A:

Bismillah

 
Thank you for your question. There is no problem in breaking an engagement before marriage. It is in the case of divorce, that if the issues can be fixed that is is discouraged to divorce. If you have a change of heart at the engagement stage there is no problem in breaking the engagement.
 
May you always be successful
