Example very unclear

Tu novia y tú habéis estado comprometidos hasta este año.Your girlfriend and you have been engaged until this year.

The meaning is unclear to me — are they no longer engaged?  

Then, in my opinion,  the English should be:

..Your girlfriend and you.were engaged until this year, not have been. But maybe I do not understand what is being expressed in Spanish. In any case, the English sentence is not clear.
