My friends and I have talked about this before - this thing called marriage. Here's one thing to keep in mind - before marriage there is an engagement - an actual event of asking someone to marry you (this is usually what the guy does).
I am here to speak on behalf of women (I'd say most women) and say that we do NOT want to be proposed to on a holiday, birthday, anniversary, Boss' Day or any other such day. Women want their own day.
Christmas and New Year's are behind us until they come around again in 11 months, so we don't have to worry about any Christmas or New Year's proposals at the moment. But darnit! Valentine's Day is coming and you know that many guys will ask their girlfriend's to marry them on that day. Can you say - corny??
It's crazy that guys do this - girls want the proposal and the wedding to be on their "own" special day - not a crazy national holiday or such that you have chosen so that you can remember your damn anniversary.
Anyway...that's my rant for today. You know I usually have at least one! Be original guys...Valentine's Day is not the perfect day for that! How about February 12th or July 17th - don't those days sound exciting?
