Well I took you Venice, kissed you under every bridge in a Gondola whilst the Gondolier sang "Volare" and "Ciao Venezzia" then got pissed, nervous and maybe even paranoid and had an argument with you. So now we're back in the kitchen at home do you still appreciate the effort?

I met Karen on a Thursday evening and I wasn't looking for a girlfriend, much less a wife. Within 20 minutes I knew that this was the woman I'd spend the rest of my life with. She had about the same feeling and when I went home I called some friends and told them. She designed a wedding dress.

We went to a ballgame on Saturday (she had free tickets-Braves) and then I couldn't see her again til Tuesday. So I sent her some flowers and said "I'm so happy you've come into my life." On Tuesday we were supposed to go watch a movie but I picked her up and said, "We have to talk, ta' hell with the movies." She agreed immediately and we went about talking about the whens and wheres of getting married. We went to a friend's house and I introduced her and we told them we were getting married. Late that night, about 2 AM we stopped in a Denny's for coffee and she reminded me that technically I hadn't proposed to her. I was eating an English muffin at the time and said, "Okay......Not upon a knee, but looking across this table and English muffin.......Will you marry me?" Fortunately she did say yes.........16 years ago. She was 27, I was 36. Absolutely the greatest and best thing that has ever happened to me!

Well, my mister was my younger brother's friend. He showed up one evening in August on a Harley. Asked my brother if he wanted to ride. Then, he asked me if I wanted to ride with him.

I said, "Let me change clothes" (had on shorts and halter top) I came back out in jeans, leathers and boots. In October he said "I think I want to make this permanent."

We were married the next March. That will be 29 years this coming March. (I wanted to be married on April 1, but the preacher wouldn't do it......I wanted "Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms at the wedding. My mother forbid it.)

She waited tables at the White House Restaurant on the morning shift where we all went for breakfast before heading off to the job. I asked her out and we never were apart after that. Went to Bloomington to see Taj Mahal one night in my '64 Ford pickup. I asked her to marry me on the way home and she said yes so we did. That was 22 years ago. I was 27 and she was 19. We still have never been apart.

We'd been going out for a couple of months, having a great time. I didn't think it was serious, till one night we went for a long walk. We stopped on a bridge overlooking the Taconic parkway in Mount Vernon, NY. he said something like, when we get married. I was flabbergasted. It lasted a great 32 yrs. They were the best of times. A drunk driver drove him off the road. The end of the dream. Funny thing, 30 yrs. before, my aunt & her boyfriend were on the same bridge and he said I'll jump if you don't marry me. She said jump. He didn't. They both were married happily to others.

My first long term relationship, I thought long and hard about marriage but finally popped the question. It lasted 17 years but eventually ended.

The second long term relationship I thought long and hard about marriage, kept finding excuses not to and after 10 years she said "you don't really love me - do you" and left. Trouble is, I did (and still do after 6 months apart).

Seems I took the wrong turn on both occasions - oh well, I've still got my guitar.

Tom and I met at a pre-Christmas client party at Fishtraks recording studio back when it was on the 3rd floor of Walker Hersey's house in Rye, NH. I came down the stairs from the studio and standing at the foot of the stairs were Denise Brown, the designer I worked with at McAllister & Co. (type shop -- we did the label & LP jacket design for Fishtraks), Hal Inglis, who owns a local ad agency, and Tom, local trad musician who had gone to school with Hal. I joined the conversation. Denise and Hal later drifted off in opposite directions and Tom and I went off to find a refill for our wine glasses and to trade songs. He also introduced me to his musical partner, banjo player Bob Frost, who was head of printing for the state of NH at the time.

Anywho, my co-workers left; Tom said he'd take me home. And there was a snowstorm going on. Both Tom and Bob lived some distance from Portsmouth (Tom was separated from his wife and living in Massachusetts), so I offered my floor for the night. I had just moved from Kennebunkport into a vile 3rd floor, 2-rooms & a bath apartment less than a month earlier. Frost traveled with a sleeping bag in those days and I tossed Tom a snugsack and a pillow -- Bob on the kitchen floor (probably with one of my cats sitting on his face) and Tom on the floor of the other room.

There was a major crisis the next morning. Not only did I only have one coffee cup, but tea drinker me didn't have any coffee, either.

The thing is, Tom never left. It was a "snow day" for him (he was a teacher) so he found a squalid winter rental at Hampton Beach. So we had my "townhouse" and his "beach cottage" for the rest of the winter. Fourth of July weekend, when his soon-to-be-ex-wife moved out of their house into her new one (just up the road -- it was a very friendly relationship), he and I moved into his house in Nottingham.

That December 15th, while celebrating the fact that we had known each other a year, we found ourselves planning our wedding. Thought at that point it might be a pretty good idea to get married. I don't think there was any asking (or formal proposal) involved. We were married the next June after school was out -- Bob Frost was our best man.

Alinact -- Fer heaven's sake, man, if it's only six months you've been separated and you really do lover her, get your heinie over there, make some kind of act of contrition and let her know, unmistakably, that you do love her and want a future together. That's not long to be "broken up," if you're really in love with her.

And, yes, Mickey191, "Marry me or I'll jump" may not be the absolute MOST effective proposal line. ...

Mickey191 - I think Peg means men she finds attractive. It has almost nothing to do with physical appearance assuming of course that he has most of his teeth and the ones he has are brushed fairly regularly. But, of course, I can't speak for Peg.

Amergin - I agree. That's why I said "No".

true Sinsull; attractiveness is in the eye of the beholder, and yes, I did mean what *I* find attractive. That said, I am an attractive woman in the conventional sense and tend to find, well, attractive men, attractive...but this is certainly a highly subjective thing.

Why would anyone marry someone they did not find attractive??? I mean, husbands and wives are supposed to sleep together and have sex, yes?

I'll tell you the story of my 2 (yes, I said two) proposals. In retrospect, I find much humor in them. My first wife (neat lady) PROPOSED TO ME! That marriage lasted 26 years, until I stopped it. After nine single years, Bride Judy and I met. I courted her for six months, and damned if SHE didn't propose to me too! Sure, yah, O.K., I went along with the game plan until the morning of the wedding. As we were getting dressed for the wedding, with the whole famdamly around, I was suddenly obsessed with the thought, "damnit, I want to propose just once." So I kicked all of her daughters and other family members out of the bedroom, where they were fussing with Mommy, and proposed to her! She seemed surprised that I felt that I needed too, but I sure felt better. It's being a grand marriage ... we're in our sixth year. CHEERS, Bob

I'd gotten off my shift at the bar and got home about 3am, crawled into bed and was just drifting when the alarm clock went off. He rolls out of bed and shakes me saying "C'mon, we're going to be late!" Me, the sleepy, fuddled thing that I was, said "Okay..." and got dressed.

We hopped in the car and started driving south. I was still tired, really cranky, and had to pee. I mentioned it might be a good thing if we stopped at the next exit, and he said "Okay". I dozed off, and woke up as we passed the exit. "Hey, you were going to stop.." He apologizes and promises to stop at the next one. The same thing happens three more times, and despite the fact that my back teeth were floating, I said "Please, we have got to stop somewhere.." He kept driving.

We finally arrived at this lovely park in Brown County, Indiana. I was in NO mood to enjoy the fall weather at 5am, and headed straight for the port-o-johns. As I came around the back of the car, he hands me a backpack, grabs my arm, and starts to head us both down this little path. Right about there, I can only assume that the urine backed clear up into my kidneys must have affect my brain in some way, because I threw one hell of a fit. I vaguely remember asking what sort of sadistic bastard would drag some poor woman from her bed in the wee hours to drive her around the countryside and tortue her very full bladder (I was sure he hit every pot-hole on purpose) I told him precisesly where he could stick his little backpack too, and threw it at him.

It turns out that he'd had about enough of me as well, and in a voice that I'm sure they could hear in Kentucky, yells at me how he envisioned us having a lovely picnic at dawn, watching the sun rise over all of the golden trees, and he was going to ask me to marry him, but now we were late for sunrise and "After the events of this morning, I'm not sure I want to marry you anymore.." We both stared at each other for a minute, blowing smoke, and then started laughing so hard that I really needed to go to that port-o-let, and how!

Afterwards, we got back in the car and drove home, laughing the entire way. We never did get married, but we've been friends ever since, and he still delights in telling people about how on the day he proposed to me, he was kind and sweet and ever so gentle, and I threw a knife at him (apparently my backpack had the breakfast gear in it and there was a little plastic knife tucked in there somewhere?) Love makes you do really stupid things, but for gawds sake, don't ever stand between a woman and a toilet.

He asked me to marry him before we were even going out with each other, when we were best mates and working together. I said "no". Then, after three-and-a-half years of being best mates and then some, when lying in bed, after the most intense silence I have ever heard, he asked me again. I asked him if he was serious, he said he'd never been more serious, and I agreed to marry him. Now if we can get ourselves in the same country for longer than a weekend and work through the long distance problems, we can actually tie the knot.

We were having a big lovers' row and (uncharacteristically for me as I am normally very calm) I threw my prized mandola at her.

Being very small, quick and agile, she jumped out of the way and the said mandola smashed against the wall, breaking into about ten pieces.

After a moment's initial astonishment and dismay, we both broke into fits of laughter and during the making up agreed to tie the knot.

That was 24 years ago and we are still together!

I later repaired the mandola and sold it when I had an instrument repair business shortly afterwards! I am not sure the purchaser ever knew the real story behind the unusual glue lines!

The following year in the same pub Geoff called for silence in the midst of the singing and playing and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes and 12 months later we got married in Whitby and of course had the reception in the Tap and Spile. How could we follow that? Well when I discovered I was expecting twins due on the last Friday of folk week!!!! They were actually born 3 weeks early so we took them to the festival with us.

we never had a marriage proposal between us ... we were kids and talked about marriage and what we wanted our life to be, and what we wanted from marriage, and what we loved about each other ... and when we were practicing sex while experimenting with birth control (apparently we had it backwards) ... the pregnancy led our conversations to discussions with parents and hard plans for married life. We married at semester break. I finished out Freshman year of college. Our eldest was born about the same time school ended and the rest is history. That was 31+ years ago, and I'd do it all over again in a heart beat.

Once I had a Moroccan stranger propose to me in Barcelona, but I don't count that.

I knew that my X2B was going to propose, what surprised me was the ring. We were going to get married after I finished my PhD, but before that we had a huge (long-overdue) fight and I threw the ring back. (We didn't split up, just got unengaged.) Years later I got very drunk at a party and told him I'd like to get married after all. After three days ("I wanted to make sure you were sober") I was asked if I still meant it, and we were married about a year later. GREAT wedding. Terrible marriage. We had Marie's Wedding as our recessional, the Moms had no say...

The first time we were walking in a field of uncut hay and wild strawberries behind my parents' farm. I swept her into my arms and asked her to marry me. We held it together for 17 years.

Last December, while sitting in the theater waiting for Harry Potter to start, Rebecca turned to me and asked me to marry her. I agreed and then asked for my "rock". She wasn't prepared for that but, then, I was just kidding. We will be married in July.
