When you decided to pop (or was asked) the question, was it romantic? Dramatic?

Asked by Tenpinmaster (2920points) February 11th, 2010 from iPhone

Please share some of your moments of engagement when you asked, or were asked “the question”. Was it romantic, funny, were you expecting it? For all of you who actually asked your SO to marry them, were you terrified of what they might say

No… The wife asked me and I paused- only to go Ummmm (and get down on my knee’s and reach into my pocket for a ring I had purchased several day’s before because I was planning to ask her) and say _Yes I would love to marry you (putting the ring on her finger)... she is gasping for air and had bug eyes and was drooling with excitement like an animal Only to excuse herself to sit down and go Oh Crap- did not see that coming

When I was in an abusive relationship a few years ago, the guy literally threw the ring and the box at my head.

Tenpinmaster's avatar

@Violet wow.. r u serious? what did you say?

Violet's avatar

@Tenpinmaster yes I am serious, I think I was already crying, and after he threw it at me, he just left the house. I eventually said yes. We never got married.. thankfully. The abuse only got worse after that

@Violet That is absolutely terrible. i am sorry :( I hope you found someone that treated you a lot better. Are you married now?

I had proposed to my lady twice. The first time, in 1997, we had been together for three years. She was still undergoing medical treatment for injuries inflicted in an earlier, severely abusive, relationship. Meg didn’t want to marry, or even become engaged, until she was physically well (her injuries made it impossible for us to have “normal” sexual relations). I had told her that I would gladly marry her even if we could never have sex, she disagreed.
The second time, in 1999, her physical condition had greatly improved. Her doctors had told her that it was all right for her to have sex. We very gently and carefully succeeded. The next morning I proposed again and she accepted, as she had told me earlier that she would. We postponed the wedding until the orthopedic therapy had her walking normally (and dancing!), about six months later.

@stranger_in_a_strange_land that is the sweetest thing ever! I’m glad that things worked out really well for you. Are you two still happily married?

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

@Tenpinmaster Meg was killed in a car crash a little over three months ago. She was only 32.

@stranger_in_a_strange_land oh jesus… god I am so sorry :( how do you deal with such a loss.. i can’t even imagine what must have been going through your head, and your heart for that matter.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

@Tenpinmaster My head has been totally messed up since it happened. I’m just trying to remember our good times, hence my responses to questions like this. A form of therapy I guess.

Tenpinmaster's avatar

@stranger_in_a_strange_land Well I hope your heart can heal from such a devastating loss. I appreciate you sharing that with us and hope that you can have solace and peace in your life.

@Violet ; Perhaps you should track him down and take you Crop and give him a good smack! Tell him your _reciprocating

Violet's avatar

@phil196662 If I knew where he was… well, I shouldn’t incriminate myself..

Violet's avatar

@Tenpinmaster no, I am thankfully not married. I left that guy years ago (it was very hard. Cops made it easier). I am with the most wonderful guy now. I couldn’t be happier. We’re not even engaged yet, but we do talk about it;.

Tenpinmaster's avatar

@Violet isn’t this the best part :) :) talking about the future, talking about getting married and having kids. I love talking to my sweetie about all that stuff. She’s the one to also introduce me to fluther! =D

Violet's avatar

@Tenpinmaster there is nothing more fun to me, than talking about our future house, cars, our kids, our wedding.

phil196662's avatar

Totally good mindset @Violet – just go for the future! But don’t scare someone too much…

Violet's avatar

@phil196662 Oh don’t worry, he brings it up just as much. He talks about our next house all the time.

phil196662's avatar

@vilot; And the Dungon?

Violet's avatar

@phil196662 we call it a sex room ; )

phil196662's avatar

I like dungeon because there are toy’s everywhere! Beconing to be applied to supple, soft and sensitive flesh of a willing submissive seeking pleasure deeper that previously experienced…
