    How did he propose?

    Advertisements
    If you're engaged or married, how did your SO propose? I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy today
    DH proposed to me when he was on Block Leave, On Christmas Eve.He asked me in front of his whole family, and as I was a bit self conscious due to our age difference, my mind went blank, and instead of saying yes, I stroked his cheek and said..."Aww, you shaved for me".(Because he always refuses to shave when he's on leave. Way to ruin a romantic moment, eh?
    I'da married him the next day, but my mom made me wait til I turned 18, lol.
    Thank you Brentscrystal!

    haha! "aww you shaved!" how funny! The "official" proposal with the ring was 10 days before the wedding cause he was on leave! I took him to the house and he got in the trunk and took out his bag, unzipped the bag and pulled out the ring and gave it to me...I think he said something like "will you be my wifey?" lol yeah...it's sooo romantic I know

    I had to read this twice. When you said got in the trunk, I actually thought he got in the trunk..and was trying to figure out why, lol.

    My DF proposed with a ring I always wear. We were laying in bed watching tv. Not how I always imagined it, but perfect for us.

    His proposal was a spur of the moment kinda thing..We were lying in bed & he just asked "Will You Marry Me"..Shocked & confused, I told him that if he could remember in the morning what he had asked me, I would answer him..Needless to say, he got up at 5 am & asked me again..We were married 2 months later we were married.

    Christmas Eve at dinner with my family. We were at a nice restaraunt and he said he had an announcement to make when everyone was done eating. He got down on one knee and said since it was Christmas time, and people give gifts at Christmas time, he wanted to give me a special gift. He opened up the ring box and asked me to marry him!

    It was Christmas day and we were opening christmas presents. He told me he would hold our daughter, who was 2 months old, so I could open mine. I gave him socks and hershey's with almonds candy bars... and he had hugged me and said "socks... just what I needed." and he started eating one of his candy bars when he handed me a box wrapped badly. I opened it and inside was a smaller box, and I opened it and inside was a piece of crumpled up paper. I uncrumpled the paper and it said "will you marry me?" He was sitting in the floor with our daughter on his knee. I looked at him and he pulled out a ring. It was the cutest, most thoughtful thing he had ever done. We got married 3 months later.

    Awww some of these stories make me feel all bubbly inside. My hubby propsed to me twice. Once when we were just laying there talking about our dream jobs. And he smiled at me and said. "Hunny I have a surprise for you." He got up went into his gunsafe, hiding from me what he was doing, and walked back. He wrestled me and pined me to our bed and was grinning goofily. He slid the ring on my finger and let me go. When I saw the ring I almost cried. He asked me to marry him, and to stay by his side for the rest of our lives. How could I say no? It was odd but it suited us.

    The second time occured AFTER he decided to join the Marines. He randomly stopped while we were in the mall and he got down on his knees and asked me, if I would still marry him, as a future Marine. We were married ten days later.
