any interesting proposal/ wedding stories?

7 posts in this topic

me and my fiance are getting married in a year and we got engaged almost a year ago so we are starting to plan stuff out and it got me thinking if any body had any neat proposal or wedding stories.

i proposed to jen at my buddies grad party. he lives on a farm and it is were we first met, we first clicked when we were up in the woods shooting trap and handguns so i decided it would be a good spot to ask her to marry me, i carved a heart into the front of a tree with our initials and i carved marry me into the back side of the tree,

well we are at the grad party and a few people know about the proposal but not everybody so i am nervous, i finally work up the courage to do it so i ask her if she wants to go on a four wheeler ride, so we ride back into the woods and i stop in front of the tree and she thought my carving was very sweet but she would not get off of the four wheeler, finally i had to shut the thing off and make her go look at it, i told her there was one on the back side also, so we walked around and her eyes got wide and i got down on one knee and she said yes. it was pefect, funny thing is she knew i had bought the ring but she was totaly caught off gaurd.

Having been behind the camera at a bunch of weddings and after being married three times myself, I'm absolutely NOT going to comment on fishinchicks' blatant acknowledgment that it's all about manipulation! If I was prodded into making a comment, then I'd have been manipulated. No way! gringrin

bearbait, great way to ask her. Way to go, and the best of luck to you! gringrin

Marge and I had been together for about a year or so. We were on vacation. We had been camping on my family's land in Nebraska, then her family's land in Wisconsin (after an 11 hour drive, with a quick stop at Cabela's to buy an 1851 Colt Navy revolver), and then we finished it off at my buddy's cabin near Webster.

We were on the back porch. I had been waiting for just the right moment. Eventually, I realized that I just had to ask her.

"Hey, Marge, should we get married?"

"Sure. Yeah, let's get married."

So we did. Beautiful wedding, big party, the whole nine. It's been great so far. She's my best friend, and we got a good thing going.

Congratulations.

And yes... it's all part of the plan.

Notice the "man" in manipulation, think there might be a correlation? smirk

    • Rather than the concepts of teams I think it more appropriate to think in terms of philosophies. Each "team" has a philosophical way of dealing with certain issues: tax codes, immigration, war on drugs etc,  So even though your candidate may be weak you are going to vote, not for them, but for that teams way of dealing with those issues.   A simple example would be tax codes.  The democrats think individual taxes for the top 10%'s should be increased where the republicans believe that reducing taxes on that same 10% will stimulate growth through trickle down economics.   So in essence, you're not voting for a particular candidate, you're voting for the team that will deal with these issues in a way you feel is best. 
    • Like Obabma, he sets up a straw man false premise and then proceeds to attack said straw man.      He is deceived by the fact that the most polarized folks are the ones making the noise, thereby creating a false impression.    You persist in wanting to discuss this article.  Why is that?      
    • So lets recap.   Decriminalization will not reduce prison populations by a noticeable amount.    Will not reduce crime.   Will not reduce monies spent combating drug suppliers and dealers.   Will not lower the consumption rates.    - Will allow regular everyday citizens who use/possess and get caught, not ruin their lives with a crippling criminal record.   May encourage the the habitual users to seek treatment/help.      Which I have no issues with.   My issues are saying with decriminalization it will save tax payers any money.   That's my beef.    
    •   I didn't see the Socialist party listed

    • Nick they are all trash, your party included, until you figure that out you are no better than some blind Trump supporter.
    •   That was a long time ago.   The media has become far more partisan than it was at that time.   

    • You are starting to sound like a helpless snowflake in desperate need of big government to take away the burden of personal responsibility away from you. I try and take a big picture approach and not mico manage our laws based on political views outside of science or common sense.

      No one is advocating for drunk driving or murder to be legal but I guess that doesn't stop you from using wild assumptions without anything to back them up.

      All most of us are asking for is simple freedoms and choices and a government that stays out of the way. Having a bunch of drugs that kill and half of the legal and half of them illegal makes no sense. You either stand for personal freedom and responsibility across the board or you don't, picking and choose this stuff based on political leanings is about as backwards as it gets and you just end up looking like a complete hypocrite. Keeping drugs outlawed because people die is the same kind of reasoning people use to take away guns. All the while you are more likely to die from eating too much McDonalds, you simply can't outlaw stupid people or the things they do and expect that to work. We as a people need to stop trying to control things are completely out of our control, all it does is waste tons of money and time and it does a wonderful job of ruining people's lives.
    • I really don't like a president calling out news media outlets by name and whining about the media. Obama did it with FOX and talk radio and now Trump is doing it with CNN and the NYT's. It's one thing for each men's supporters to do it. But I don't recall GWB or Reagan or Carter calling out the media by name in public.   I don't buy the claim from some(nobody here) that doing such is a sign of a dictator(the same, btw, who cheered BHO doing it). It just makes a president look weak and whiny and looking for other's to blame for their own failures. Not that I'm a fan of the NYT's, but I do believe in freedom of the press even the press I personally don't care much for.   If you're an elected official, the press is supposed to be a thorn in your side
    •   This is what Del was probably talking about and yes he is right, we do have to pick a side or at least a candidate when we go to the polling booth but there is no need to defend every single move the candidate makes and vilify every single move the opposition makes.      I'm not sure what makes us think and behave the way we do, I didn't take enough psychology or anthropology courses in college to answer that question but I do know that to me it is even more repulsive than the small minded thinking that goes in to hating one sports team although they are basically the same as your chosen sports team. I can see liking and rooting for one sports team or political faction over another but the pure hatred for the opposite team is mind boggling to me.     These are the fine points of this article as I see it. Now would anyone like to have a discussion on these points?
    •   This paragraph is important because I believe that most people now when faced with a political discussion do indeed "turn off their intellect". It's the only way to get through the hypocrisy that arises when one chooses a side so completely.
