My Very Unromantic Proposal Story by Kimberly Rose Johnson
I wish I could say my husband went all out and planned the perfect proposal, but that would be a lie. LOL I am probably married to one of the least romantic men on the planet. I’m constantly amazed by the proposal videos I see online. These men really put a lot of thought into how to propose—not my honey. 🙂
My man put zero thought and planning into his proposal. He actually proposed the day he purchased my ring. We’d talked about marriage and had even looked at rings, but he wanted to surprise me. Well he certainly did that. 🙂
He was visiting me in Oregon the weekend of my 19th birthday. The day before my birthday, we were sitting in my parent’s living room watching Air Wolf. Does anyone remember that show? It was one of my favorites. Anyway, I was sitting on one couch, and he was on the other. One minute we were watching TV and the next he pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him. I don’t remember if he got down on one knee or not. I don’t think he did.
I was shocked! I was still 18 and honestly didn’t expect him to propose so soon or in a moment like that. But, in spite of his lack of planning and impulsive proposal I said yes. We were married two months before my 20th birthday and have been together ever since. This year we will be married 27 years.
I guess that goes to show, a super romantic proposal isn’t necessary for a good marriage.
