Our engagement story isn't big and spectacular. We had been dating for just over a year and we actually nearly broke up right in the beginning because my faith is so very important to me and well, his wasn't as important. It was my dedication and unwavering faith that made him start taking a closer look at his. Long story, short - he started attending my Church as faithfully as I. Now the Orthodox wedding ceremony is quite lengthy and different from the Protestant ceremony and we had been talking about eventually one day getting married. I was used to the questions he had every now and then about the ceremony and what nots, so when he took me by the hand after service one day and took me up front to ask more questions it didn't surprise me nor raise my suspicions.

He asks if we got married was that where we would get married at and I pulled him back to in front of the featured icon and was telling him 'no this is where we'd actually stand and then walk around the table that would be there...' yada yada yada but he kept pulling me back up to the front of the Church and saying something about getting married right there. He finally had to say, "Just stand here a minute!" so I'd quit trying to take him back in front. So I did, then he got down one knee and said, "Well, if here is good enough for us to get married then here is good enough for me to ask you to be my wife. Will you marry me?" as he presented me with a ring box. I was so shocked that I just stood there with my hand over my mouth and then finally nodded and said something like yes before he got up and we hugged.

It's actually all on film as one of the girls was filming it as they realized what was happening! I later found out he wanted to keep me behind the icon so no one would see us in case I said no!! He was afraid I might because it was so early and we had both been burned very badly that we wanted to take our time. But it really did feel right.

As we were walking out of the Church one of our good friends walked up and said, "Did I see what I think I just saw?!" It was so cute!

We were married three months later :)

I'm 27 years old right now. I met my husband when I was 16 years old, as we went to the same high school together. We did theatre together and honestly weren't that close at the time. We ran in different social circles, and hardly spoke. I also didn't find him attractive back then either. He graduated the year before I did. I saw him again the summer before my senior year started at the video store not far from our high school. He had lost a lot of weight and had my attention. I wasn't honestly thinking about dating him at that time as I had just gotten out of a short relationship and was feeling disenchanted with men. However, we exchanged phone numbers in the video store and agreed to spend some time catching up.

Over the next couple of months we hung out and talked a lot. I loved spending time with him. He was quickly becoming a person I would include in my best friends circle. He writes poetry and was sending me a lot of his poetry for editing. A friend of mine clued me in that the poetry was actually about me. I started looking at him a little differently, seeing if I felt there was something there. We went to my homecoming together for my Senior year, which I think was before I found out about the poetry bit. When I decided I was interested, it took my a few tries to get up the nerve to tell him I knew about the poetry and I was interested. We ended up breaking up after 8 months because my mother and a couple close friends didn't approve of him. I still wanted to be with him but the pressure was tough to handle and I was starting to think they were right. A few weeks after, I begged to get back together with him. We almost did, but had a fight and I started dating someone else.

Fast forward almost 2 years. I had finally broken up with the guy I was dating. Chris and I had started talking and hanging out again towards the end of my relationship with my boyfriend at the time. My feelings for him were as strong as ever. We hooked up the same night I broke up with my boyfriend, which was DEFINITELY not in the plans AT ALL. I just needed a shoulder to cry on, but you know how it goes when you're a damsel in distress and the guy you love is in your company. I knew the day that we got back together that he was the guy I would marry. That was August 13, 2004.

I was finishing up my AA degree and then doing my BA degree and life was hectic and finances were tight. Marriage sounded nice, but there wasn't enough time and money to plan anything. A lot of friends and family and even people we just met who heard our story had started to say "Why aren't you married?" Our plan was to just wait until I had finished graduate school to get married. We love each other and know we want to spend forever together, so the legality wasn't important right away. I finished my BA degree and started working in a call center. I had medical insurance initially. When I started a grad school program (which I later decided wasn't for me), I cut down to part-time and was grateful my employer still let me keep my insurance. With budget cuts, they decided that part-timers would no longer be eligible for insurance benefits come 2010. Chris had just finished a Surgical Technologist program and started working at Harborview Medical Center January 4th of 2010. We got married January 16th of 2010 so that I could get on his insurance and order my prescription refills. My brother and one of my best friends Zach were the witnesses, and our friend Josh became a licensed reverend just so that he could marry us. We were worried about how much a judge would cost and if a judge would be willing to do a weekend thing. LOL We are planning to have an actual celebration this year on August 14th. Our friend Josh will be there to act as reverend again for the short recommitment ceremony we will have, so that our friends and family get to see an actual procession. The whole ceremony will cost us only about $2,000 (dresses and tuxes included) cuz finances are still tight, but we're excited to have an opportunity to celebrate

LOL Yes, we do, but haven't been since our honeymoon! We've been so busy having babies, we haven't had a chance to go. But - we are definitely going this coming spring & summer. We've decided to "camp" in our backyard a few times first so the kids get an idea of what it's like before we go out. I can't wait! emoticon

Love these stories!

I was staying at my sister's house the summer before my Sr year of high school (I was 16). She invited her friend and friend's boyfriend over for dinner one night. I opened the door when they knocked and knew when I looked at the friend's boyfriend that he was going to be my husband one day. A couple of weeks later, they broke up and he (Eric) was coming over to "hang out". My sister, her boyfriend, Eric, and I all went camping a couple of weeks later and from then on, Eric and I have been together. We moved into an apartment together the night before I graduated h.s. in June of '02. He proposed at a lake, during a camping trip on my sister's birthday that September. (My dad hid in the bushes by the lake taking pictures and shooing people away while Eric proposed.) 9 months later, we were married and I got pregnant on the honeymoon! (Oh..and we went camping for our honeymoon - notice a trend?)

Our story fits how our life has gone.

My now husband and I met just over 21 years ago. I was engaged to someone else and knew my now father-in-law because I worked with him. I worked in WI and he was in TX. He brought his family up with him when he came up for work and that's when I met him. We became friends, but the longer I knew him, the more I thought about him and knew that I needed to end the relationship I was in.

We began long distance "dating" in May, and in November I moved to Texas, knowing him, his parents and his best friends. That was it.

On New Year's Eve day we were out shopping and looking at rings. We were very broke and couldn't afford a diamond, so I picked out a sapphire ring for $120. My hubby was insistent that he couldn't give me that since it wasn't a diamond, but... I won :)

We went to Six Flags Holiday in the Park. We were waiting in line for the horse drawn carriage ride, when we heard a commotion, and they began to refund our money. Someone had spooked the horse, overturned the carriage, and sent the "driver" to the hospital in critical condition. Hubby was going to propose on the carriage, and there was no plan B.

Instead, we drove to my apartment, picking up a bottle of wine on the way, and he proposed when we watched the ball drop on TV. He was sitting on the couch when he proposed. Didn't even get down on one knee.

Our life has had more ups and downs than the roller coasters at Six Flags!!!

"Live in such a way so that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, the Devil says "Oh, NO, she's awake!"

Our engagement story...
When I was preparing for my Junior Prom, I had the guy, had the dress and was set to go (a month or so before time) only to find out that the guy (who went to a different school) had told a girl at his school that he'd go to prom with her... it just so happened that both proms were the same night!
Having the dress already my parents had said I WAS GOING! I didn't want to go stag, so was complaining about it at my church youth group when my youth leader said "ask my son.". She put a bug in his ear, I asked him at church that Sunday and he said "Sure" and walked away. I wasn't sure if he was serious or not! He didn't ask the date or anything! But he called me that Thursday and asked me out...
I thought he was a dork... but was at a point in my life that I felt school was more important than guys, and I was just tired of the relationship thing. I did not want a relationship, so I decided who cares, and we just went out as friends... From the end of March until the night of his prom in mid May! We also saw each other at least once a weekend in between! Our parents even started hanging out together more.
Long story short... he was the one. In Feb. of my senior year I found out I was pregnant and we got married that June. We had decided months earlier we wanted to get married, but knew at our age our parents would never allow it... then when the pregnancy 'happened' that changed things a bit!
The pregnancy ended with a stillbirth in September of 1996, but we will be celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary in less than a month! We are together only by the grace of God, and our CHOICE to love each other!

Tom and I met in 2004 when I took a new job. I was training at his store before mine opened. At the time I was with someone else. He kept coming to my store and asking for me and then one day he brought his adorable 3 yr old son. After that I finally took his number (but this time I was single). About a month and a half later I was pregnant (oops). We decided to NOT get married b/c of the baby... we'd just see what happened. That next mother's day his son came in with a small gift for me... inside was a little bear holding a rose (at Beanie Baby) and under that was a stone box with my engagement ring inside.. he and Tom asked me to be in their lives forever and then Tom asked if I would be his wife. It was May 8, 2005.

Ronnie and I were high school sweethearts. After my graduation, he asked me to marry him but I said "Not now I have to go to college first". Shortly after I left for college, Ronnie left for Connecticut( I am still trying to understand why Connecticut!!!). We stayed in touchfor about 3 months and then decided the relationship would not work. So....fast forward twenty years to January 2008. Ronnie with the help of a friend looked my mother up on-line. To his suprise (and my suprise) he found my information and my mother's information. He called my mother because why would I be in Birmingham, AL he thought. My mother (being my mother) did not confirm or deny any information about me. Ronnie talked with my sister who was at my mother's house and gave his information to her and told her he would like to hear from me. My sister who remembers everything about Ronnie and me texted me, "Ronnie called". I called her to get details--Ronnie who? What did he want? I called Ronnie the next day.

Ronnie and I talked every weekend for about a month; then every other day for about a month; then we talked every day two to three times a day!!!! Enough talking we need to see each other..April 2008. We were married on July 11, 2008.

Hi everyone... I had fun reading everyone's engagement stories... here is mine (it is really long I know)...

My best friend met this guy online, and they dated for about a year before she decided to move to Texas to be closer to him and go to school (we both lived in OK). Her boyfriend at the time had it in his head that I would be a perfect match for his friend, but his friend lived in SC at the time and was engaged...LOL... So of course I ignored her boyfriend when he would talk about his friend! Well turns out that the guy from SC broke off his engagement and ended up moving to Texas to go to Seminary at the same time that my best friend moved... So the guy from SC (my soon to be boyfriend) and I met for the first time when we were helping my best friend move into her apartment.

It was not love at first sight- atleast not for me, and I am pretty sure that he was oblivious to girls at that time since he just ended a long relationship.

Well the next month goes by, and my friend got to know Donny a little better because they would all hang out together. I remember distinctly gettting a call from her and remember her saying that Donny was perfect for me, we talked about the same things, and she could just see us being together...she kept going on and on... I laughed at her and said "well if he is so perfect, maybe he is right for you!" So to say the least I was not interested... but then...

I decided to go visit my friend, so she made arrangements for us to go on a sort of double date type thing, and of course I would be "stuck" with Donny since he was the only other guy she knew. Well on the way there I got pulled over and got my first ticket, so I show up at her apartment with tears in my eyes (and very embarrased). I don't even remember seeing Donny until we got in the car!!! Then I remember looking over at him and I started to get the butterflies (you know what I am talking about). That was our first date I guess... we wouldn't officially be together until a month or so later, but our relationship grew fast... it was a long distance relationship at first, then I moved to Texas a year later and roomed with that friend...

The proposal... well Donny called me one morning as he was driving to class and told me to turn on the radio... so I turned it on, and I couldn't find the station he told me to, and I finally got to it... I thought maybe he had dedicated a song to me or something. He was trying to stall a bit because he had already said the proposal to the announcer which they recorded ahead of time, and now he was just waiting to have it aired... So there we were on the phone and finally I heared the announcer say "Donny, I hear you have something to ask someone".

My heart jumped a thousand feet high- I knew what was coming, but I couldn't believe it at the same time... He made his proposal and of course I said YES! They started playing Michael W. Smith's The love of my life... It was a truely amazing day and I didn't even get to see him until after 6pm!!! There was no ring, but that didn't matter to me...

He actually proposed to me twice- the second time with a ring at my friend apartment where we first met... that was just as sweet too..

We have now been married almost 5 years, and have "been together" almost 7... wow how time flies!

I met my husband on internet relay chat (IRC). This was back in the day when the internet was starting out. I had an assignment for one of my classes to talk with someone online and then report back. Well, I talked with him. I liked him because he didn't ask sleazy questions. We talked about religion, politics, etc. a real intellectual conversation.

I then kept going to the lab everytime I didn't have class just to talk with him. I didn't even eat. I would eat a pack of crackers and that would be it. We finally started to talk on the phone and we would talk for hours. He lived two hours away and boy was my father mad when he got a $300 phone bill one day!

He then moved down to Pittsburgh. I picked out an apartment for him and my parents and I moved him in.

We started talking on the computer in January of 1994 and he asked me to marry him in March. We were married May of 1995 after I graduated college.

I met my husband in my first year of college - he was actually my best friend's roommate and I was engaged to someone else at the time. He had just returned from Desert Storm where he served as a Marine.

When my best friend met him, she called me right away and said that this guy was perfect for me. (I had gotten engaged after only a short period of dating this other man, and we just weren't right together). So I met him, and he instantly liked me - his first words to me as he hugged me were "God, you are beautiful!" - and I liked him too, it was like love at first sight. But I held off - I was engaged, after all, and he was living w/ my best friend. Even just as roommates/friends, still, you never know.

So months went by, and I broke off my engagement. He would always try to talk to me when I called my best friend or visited. One night I called to talk to her - knowing she wasn't home - and we ended up talking all night. We were inseparable after that.

We were young when we met, so we had a whirlwind romance and got engaged after a year or so. However we moved in together as well, and that put a strain on the relationship. We broke off the engagement, and he moved out of state and I got my own apartment in the city. We didn't talk for a year.

The next New Year's Eve he called me. I was living with my best friend now and I was out at a party. She got the call and wasn't going to tell me he called, knowing our past. But the next day she did, and I called him and we slowly became friends again. I wanted more, but didn't want to push things. Then it just happened, and we were back together.

We've actually been engaged three times - in the first engagement he proposed without a ring, and then again with a ring. In the second engagement - the one that stuck (third time's a charm) we went on a trip to Memphis with my sister and her boyfriend and he had planned to propose to me in a hot air balloon. However the weather had other ideas and we had to stop driving and stay at a hotel, we were snowed in. He proposed then, he had stopped at a gas station for champagne.

We have now been married 10 years on March 13th :)

It may sound silly but my husband and I have ALWAYS celebrated the day we met as 'Our Anniversary'.

We met at a Halloween party thrown by his mother. I worked with her for over 3 years before I agreed to meet her son. From that first night we became inseparable. We took our relationship very slow. Once our relationship matured I found a new job so I wouldn't have to work with my boyfriend's mother anymore (little awkward)

Anyway- fast forward 3 years to the day. My then boyfriend arrived at my apartment all dressed up, with a pumpkin flower arrangement (very beautiful) and a bottle of wine (which we don't drink). He took me to a very nice restaurant for dinner. Then we went back to my apartment. He asked me to play some music while he got us some wine.

When he came into the living room he looked so nervous. (So cute- I knew what was happening) After a few songs he got down on one knee (Faith Hill's song 'Beautiful' was playing) he told me that he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. His voiced cracked when he opened the ring box and sad "Will you marry me?"

I was so excited! He slipped the ring on my finger the second I said "YES!" Then we hugged and kissed...PERFECT NIGHT!

This halloween will make 9 (NINE!) years TOGETHER!

My engagement story. Well it's not very extravagant which is kind of my style. I am a jeans and t shirt kind of girl. I always dreamed it would be but thats not at all saying I didn't love the way it went down. We was visiting my grandmother one night and Wayne said let's go over to your dad's house which is right across the street from my grandma's house. When we got there him and my dad went back in the bedroom for a few minutes. I didn't really pay any thought to it because my dad is always buying mew stuff and showing it to Wayne. Next thing I knew Wayne and my dad came out in the living room. Wayne got down on one knee. I realized at that moment he was in the room asking my dad for my hand in marriage. Which I thought was GREAT!!! He said "Patricia I love you and could not imagine my life without you. I do not see my self with anyone else ever. Would you be my wife?? And I cried and shook my head and said "YES" And he presented me with a beautiful princess cut ring.

One of the best ways (so they say!) to keep the love alive is to remember the love you started with. So post your engagement story here so you can relive it!

WHEN WE GOT ENGAGED

September 8, 2007

HOW IT HAPPENED

Well it was a surprise for me at Anton's going away picnic as congratulations from leaving his place of worship at Madison Heights and switching over to Pontiac Spanish.
He did tell me all week that we were going to have a great weekend. I had to pick up some food from Mexicantown for his Mexican theme party. So I was there late (on purpose so the food would still be warm when we ate.) He texted messaged me while I was gone and was like "Do you love me?" And I texted message him back, "Of course, I'm driving all over the place doing stuff for your party and I'm exhausted!" lol And he text me back, "Well we will see later."
So of course in the back of my mind I was like, "Hmmm that's funny maybe he's going to propose today." But then I was like nah I don't think so, too much stuff going on.
Then I when I got there one of my Aunts and a couple other family members were all there before anyone else in my family. And they were like, "We're here to wish Anton goodbye from Madison Heights." And I thought, "That's weird, I don't remember putting them on the evite, but okay."
And my parents got there around 3:50. About 10 minutes later we started the games. So everyone was summoned over to watch the games. There were over 100 people there. Some of Anton's family and many from his hall. There were two pinatas. Once was a racing car and one was of the little Mermaid. They had the kids break open the first pinata and there were a bunch of toys inside.
Then they were like "now there's an adult pinata and Tashena you have to go first." So I had to be blindfolded and hit the pinata that was that had the little mermaid on it and was in the shape of a heart. I hit it twice and I'm like, "Am I done now, can someone else do it?" And Anton was like, "No you have to break it." So I kept hitting it and it broke. Anton took off the blindfold and said, "get your prize." It was a box with a tag with my name on it with big letters.
I was just in shock and didn't pick up the box didn't even move. So he picks up the box and gets the ring out and he's like "Well I guess I'd better do this now." He gets on one knee. Then my phone that's in my pocket rings and I have to shut the sound off. And he gets nervous and his voice is shaky so he takes a breath and is like okay and tells everyone how we've known each other for 6 years and I'm his best friend and he'd like to spend the rest of his life with me. And then he asks me to be his wife in Spanish. And everyone shouts for us to translate it so we repeat it in English.
So then I'm asking him questions and find out that everyone but ME (everyone at his congregation and all my family) knew that this was my surprise engagement party in addition to his going away party!
