We asked readers to share their marriage proposal stories with the New Castle News for a special Valentine’s Day Contest we are conducting. Here are today's contestants.
My day began with an apology letter from my boyfriend, expressing his sorrow for not being able to return home for our five and a half year anniversary. However, in lieu of his presence, a gift was waiting for me.
Last April my fiancé, Michael, and I were on a cruise in the Caribbean. We had been planning this trip for a long time.
Once upon a time, there was a boy who loved a girl. He took her to a place filled with unspoken stories hidden behind wrought iron fences and marble façades. There, beneath the violet blue sky and red autumn leaves, he laid a picnic on a satin cloth.
Mine was so simple .
I was very excited to hear of your Valentine’s Proposal Contest since my proposal was on the front page of the New Castle News on Valentine’s Day back in 1996.
Sept. 4, 2009, was just a regular workday for me. It was a couple weeks into the school year, and it was a very hot day. I took my classroom outside to play around 2:45 p.m., and at 3 p.m., a co-worker came outside and said all the teachers MUST get into the school immediately.
My fiancé proposed to me nearly nearly two years ago. We had been dating, long distance, (he lived in South Carolina and I lived here in Pennsylvania).
In the summer of summer 1991, we went to the mall and passed a jewelry store. I decided to look like every woman does.
He drove to a school playground and parked the car. I was angry because I thought he wanted to neck.
My fiancé proposed to me using a puppy.
