TMI Tuesday | Marry Me, Will Ya …
One of the things I am most proud of in my life is my marriage. It’s a unique relationship that has endured its share of ups and downs, good times and bad. But what I am most proud of is the fact that my husband and I are committed to making it work. So many marriages seem to dissolve and the two partners involved don’t seem to want to put in the effort.
Let’s face it, society today revolves around a disposable mentality, combined with a hunger for immediate satisfaction. It’s why divorce is so prevalent; it’s why debt is so prevalent. No one wants to put in the blood, sweat and tears to achieve success; no, they want it delivered right now.
One of the other reasons why my marriage is unique is the fact that we have worked hard to shed the hang-ups that also seem to doom some relationships. Now that we have been able to find some harmony through a more adventurous spirit, the excitement has blossomed, and the experience enhanced!
1. Do you believe in marriage?
Absolutely, I do … but I also believe in working hard to make it come alive and be something to celebrate for many years, not just a trend.
2. Have you ever proposed marriage or been proposed to marry? What happened?
Yes … 22 years ago on August 14, and it’s still going strong.
3. What would be your dream way of proposing marriage?
A romantic setting in the shade of the Eiffel Tower? Maybe on a sunset-lit beach in the Caribbean?
4. What would be your nightmarish way of proposing marriage?
Count Vlad’s castle?
5. Mainstream society has engagement rings; in your opinion, what token should be given to signify engagement?
Why mess with tradition … besides it’s fun to catch guys trying to steal a peek at my ring finger on my left hand; even more so on those days when my work requires I not wear my rings.
6. What do you think would have happened to cause someone to have “Will you marry me?” on the back of their caravan?
Maybe nothing … maybe the people with the caravan are travelling ministers, going across the countryside marrying young lovers and the words on the back are their calling card?
BONUS: Tell us about someone you would have proposed to but never had the chance/opportunity.
Can’t say there is anyone out there that qualifies. I’m happily married to the only person who is worthy of that role.
