Will you marry me?
Such a simple phrase, so easy to say yes to, and so impossible to understand the implications of when acceptance will entail. Valentine’s Day is just about upon us, and to mark the day, 4Mothers will be talking about proposals gone right. For the record, we four are all (still, currently) married, so we may end up talking about our own proposal stories, but then again, proposals come in all shapes and sizes, so who knows?
Do you like the celebrations? I know many people get annoyed at the forced and commercial nature of the day, but I always remember my university roommate who defended Valentine’s Day by saying, “of course we don’t need a special day to remember our loves because we can celebrate them all the other days of the year, except that we don’t”.
So, before we talk about proposals, we’d like to be among the first to wish you a good day tomorrow, complete with a virtual box of chocolates. Happy Valentine’s Day, readers. We are so glad you come here.
