What are some ways that you can propose marriage to the woman you love that will be romantic and meaningful?

We were told of one man who took the woman he wanted to marry to a romantic dinner and then took her to their church afterward. He then asked her to go into the restroom to take off her nylon stockings. She questioned him about his request, thinking it was a bit strange. But he asked her just to trust him and he would explain his request later.

She did what he asked and afterward was led into the church sanctuary. He then took her over to an area that had a spotlight shining over it. There he provided a chair for her to sit on, brought out a basin of water (that he had prepared ahead of time) and proceeded to wash her feet.

As he was washing her feet he told her of his deep love for her and asked her to consider being his wife. He said, “I want to serve you and wash your feet for the rest of our lives together.” It didn’t take her long to express her love to him and to accept his proposal of marriage.

Isn’t that a romantic story? What a beautiful beginning for a life together and what a wonderful attitude to have! We pray he never forgets what he had proposed to her —not only to marry, but the attitude of the heart.

Another wedding we proposal we read about in a past issue of Marriage Partnership Magazine. In this article, it told of a man who had arranged for a stranger to help him surprise the woman he loved with a book that would lead to his marriage proposal in a very romantic setting. Rather than try to explain the story of his wedding proposal, we would like to have you read about it for yourself.

There are additional ways to propose to the woman you love. A few examples are:

•  Find a secluded quiet place and simply get down on one knee and propose.

•  Tape a video proposal and post it on YouTube. Tell her you found a great video you want her to see.

•  Use poetry word magnets to write out your proposal on the front of her fridge.

Got Cold Feet When It Comes to Creative Marriage Proposal Ideas

We also found a humorous and yet helpful video that tells of one man’s findings as to the best way to propose. We hope it will help you to plan for your wedding proposal. This is titled, “Marriage Proposal Christian, put together by

Above all, keep in mind that you can have the “perfect proposal” and the “perfect wedding” but if you don’t plan for the marriage (no marriage is “perfect”) —putting the time in beforehand and afterward to make sure your relationship grows rich in love and commitment, it’s all for naught.

Plan a fun proposal… yes. Plan a nice wedding… yes. But most important of all, plan for a great marriage and then do what it takes to make it that way, which will be a lifetime commitment and a lifetime of working for it to be that way.

We’d LOVE to know of your ideas and maybe a testimony from those of you who have already proposed and found it to be a positive experience. How did you propose?
