… That is a tough one, maybe ask him if he will wear your ring?

Sorry I’m pretty stumped, hopefully someone else has better advice πŸ™‚

Good luck though, it sounds wonderful!

Aww, that’s so cute! I love that he wants to be proposed to too. πŸ™‚ You could phrase the way MrsvH-T: suggested, which I like. Or if you guys like to be silly, you could ask, “Will you put up with my snoring and annoying family (or insert your own inside joke) for the rest of our lives?”

If it were me (and I’m all about embarassing my other half), I would come up with a speech and get down on one knee in the middle of a crowded place.

Something like, “Captain Crunch, you bring such joy to me every day. You’re my best friend, my favorite person in the world, and I want to spend every day of the rest of my life with you. Will you wear my ring/will you marry me?”

>:D

I would ask him to marry you haha. Just be super romantic and do exactly what a guy would do…get down on one knee and everything. That’s really sweet!!! I love that idea.

You could say something along the lines of “Baby, on so & so day you made me the happiest woman alive by asking me to spend the rest of my life you. With that being said, will you wear this ring to show the rest of the world your never ending love for me?” πŸ˜› Something like that.

awww i love this whole idea!! of the rings you posted, i really love choice 2, but it might look really wide on an actual finger. is this ring going to be different than his wedding band? because if it is, choice 3 would be fine–traditionally Jewish wedding bands aren’t supposed to have any breaks/are supposed to be solid, but if it isn’t an actual wedding band, i think it’s fine…? it’s really up to you guys though. i know Jewish couples that don’t adhere to that tradition anyway.

and as for asking him, even though you are engaged I think you can still ask him to marry you. even though hubs and I already are married, I still sometimes like asking him if he’d marry me πŸ˜‰ to me it kind of symbolizes the fact that staying in love and commited to one another is an active choice we make every day. there’s no way the answer would be no, but it’s still nice to think of it as a choice so we don’t take it for granted

ETA: on the when you’d ask–I’m like you and would be totally way too impatient not to ask right away! I don’t think I’d be able to wait until the cruise if I were you!
