Proposals are important. We aren’t saying we expect our guys and gals to splash out thousands to get down on one knee on an exotic island during a candlelit dinner and surprise us with a flashmob and diamond ring as big as our heads (although we wouldn’t say “no” either).
We do, however, expect more than a lazy “We’re still getting married, right?” We don’t want to hear any excuse about double-checking to make sure she was on the same page. u/Rhalellan could have done don’t the double-check with a decent proposal. It’s only marginally better than when my dad asked my mom by grunting, “Well, will ya?” She hasn’t forgotten it either.
