No way we can say yes or no to such a question. Alcoholics, including recovering alcoholics, differ significantly. That he's been dry for 3 years is good, that he's had 3 relapses not so good ( depending on how severe they were and how long they lasted ). And as Annon2 says, he has been dry since the last relapse ended. How does he behave during a relapse ? What help does he seek ( if he seeks it ) ? Who does he blame for his relapses ? Does he recognize potential triggers for relapses and does he strive to avoid those ? Be cautious. Maybe engagement was not a great idea till you had fully thought out all of this, and had observed him as a friend, for longer
