Bet no one's done it but...

Anyone asked or been asked for their hand in marriage today?

I'm not planning on doing it, Mr Sue safe for another 4 years

there was no fancy proposal at our house.

it was sometime august last year, we were on our way to a butterfly house in spalding somewhere, and i turned to lee and said - probably about time we got married. if we do it before we leave the country then we can throw another party.

yeh alright then.

and so we did, 6 wks later.

Good to see romance isn't dead

Mind, that's more my kind of thing, I don't do big romantic gestures

I made the mistake of asking 16 years ago!!! I was drunk though although Danny said it still counted, however nearly 14 years of marriage shows that not everything that I have done while being under the influence of alcohol has been a bad thing
