If I understand it correctly, because you were feeling insecure that his ex-wife still has his last name, you had an argument on your way to your engagement trip (and the argument was probably your fault for the most part, safe to say?) Then the way to overcome this “unpleasant” engagement/proposal story is to forgive yourself, move on and look forward to your wedding day and marriage to a wonderful man.

babeba: We actually don’t remember how or even when we met. It was during our…wilder…years. It bums me out because there are a lot of things that happened around that time that I’d rather forget, but I’ve ironically forgotten all the memories I really wish I had. We just kind of became friends over time, but we were party friends first. Although I don’t think “friends” is even the right word for what we were before. =/
Point is, I know what it’s like to think back on aspects of your relationship that should have been adorable and feel less-than-elated.

A perfect proposal is one where one person asks, “Will you marry me?” And the other person says, “yes.” You had that.
Think of the question/answer as a cake. Now think of everything surrounding the question/answer (arguments, etc.) as icing. Now go enjoy a naked cake.

I do not understand why his ex cannot keep that last name. I have never heard of this type of situation.

If you have a problem with your proposal story then it is at least partially your own fault, sorry to say. And why can’t his ex keep his last name? Wtf? Seriously you saw fit to not only insist on that, but to argue about it? Damn.

I think I once heard a tale of someone dying immediately after proposing so no, that is not the worst proposal story ever. Not by a long shot.

This has clearly run it’s course so I’m going to close this now for review.
