How did you know that she was the one? 

“I knew she was the one because she completed all the empty spaces that my life had and I knew that she would fill them with Happiness, I liked the love she has for people, I like her heart full of love and kindness.”

When did you know that she was the one? 

“When I saw the brightness of His eyes as she looked at me and that perfect smile when she spoke to me.”

Did you stress over choosing the ring? 

“Choosing the ring did not stress me so much, the most stress I felt was when I bought it!”

How did you propose? 

“I gave her a ring that said LOVE, that was not an engagement ring but with that ring I expressed what I felt for her. Showing her that my love was real, after that I gave her an engagement ring… The way that I gave it to her was awful because I was nervous!”

Do you wish you had done it differently now? 

“Yes, I would love to be able to do that. Make her feel like the love of my life. I would plan for it to be in a more romantic place and less nervous.”

What did you think when you saw her walking down the aisle toward you on your wedding day?

“I wanted to cry, in my mind I only heard angelic choruses singing Hallelujah. I was marrying the love of my life and nothing could have made me happier than that moment.”

How did you know that she was the one? 

“Something felt different. Good and bad. The good was knowing she was different from everyone else I knew before her and the “bad” was a gut feeling I never had. I knew it meant something good.”

When did you know that she was the one? 

“I don’t think you ever really know. It is something like a leap of faith. Sometimes I look at everything in my life and am still in awe that I am married and have her as my wife. She puts up with a lot so I am more than thankful.”

Did you stress over choosing the ring?

“I stressed out with the ring when I told the saleswoman my budget and she pulls out all the big price tag rings. MEN, DO NOT BE AFRAID. I was not ashamed to go to the on sale case and pick out a ring in my budget that was once the price of the ‘bling rings’.” 

How did you propose? 

My plans kept changing. I DO NOT RECOMMEND WHAT I DID. But yes it worked great. I knew I wanted to do it the day after my wife’s birthday. I didn’t get her anything, not even a card, for her birthday. The following day my wife and I were heading to Gettysburg for my family’s reunion. I asked her father that morning if it was ok to take his daughters hand in marriage. (I didn’t want Kayla’s mother to accidentally spill the beans). We go have the reunion, ring in the front trunk of the car and… IT RAINS ALL DAY.

I was hoping to propose somewhere on the battle field. No luck. Kayla was mad at me and I felt like she was ready to rip my heart out for not getting her anything for her birthday and the weather wasn’t helping either. “Maybe I can propose at the circle in town. (Nowhere to park and still raining). I was thinking “If I can’t pull this off today she will never talk to me again.”

Heading back home, it hit me. Her grandfather owned a service station in our hometown and her father still works there. Kayla grew up at the station. I’LL DO IT THERE!!! Less than a mile from the station I start jiggling the steering wheel, acting like we may have a flat tyre or something was wrong with the car. I get out, look at a tyre, say a few obscenities to sell my story, I get in the trunk and get the ring out. I then ask if she could come and take a look. She has to shed her blanket cocoon and put on shoes. But after a few choice words of her own she comes around the front of the car to me on a knee. You can figure out the rest. She said, “No”. Quickly followed by an “Oh my God, YES”.

Do you wish you had done it differently now? 

“Nope. Maybe gone ahead and gotten her a birthday card.”

What did you think when you saw her walking down the aisle toward you on your wedding day?

“I’m not sure. I was in shock I was getting married, a second time, but that is a different story. There was nothing special about her walking down the isle because she was the most beautiful person I knew even before the wedding.”

How did you know that she was the one? 

“She met almost every “thing” I wanted in a partner, and she was easy to talk to and really beautiful.”

When did you know that she was the one?

“Within 2 weeks of meeting her.”

Did you stress over choosing the ring?

“Nope, her mom provided an heirloom diamond and I had it put into a new ring.”

How did you propose? 

“I took her to a local pottery painting place. What she didn’t know is that I had gone to the same place a week earlier and painted a clay heart-shaped jar and painted “Will you marry me” on the inside when you open it up. So as she was finishing painting her pottery, I went and got the one I made earlier, put the engagement ring inside, and came back to the table. Then I dropped down on one knee, opened the jar showing the ring, and proposed.”

Do you wish you had done it differently now? 

“No, it went perfectly.”

What did you think when you saw her walking down the aisle toward you on your wedding day?

“She was beautiful, and I remember feeling so grateful and proud that she was about to be my wife! Score!”

How did you know that she was the one? 

“I believe that there are multiple people that you could potentially marry, and have a very happy life together. I don’t think there’s only one person in the whole universe that is just for you. However, when you say “I do”, that person becomes THE ONE! So with that in mind, I actually met my future wife when I joined an organization that sends teams locally and globally to serve. We were on the same team, working together for months. I got to see how she reacted to situations, and really got to know her on a deeper level than “hey, let’s go watch a movie together”. It was in the process of spending those times together that I begin to realize that she could definitely be ‘the one’.”

When did you know that she was the one?

“There is always an initial attraction that I think is a given, and a starting point. But one of the times that I knew she was “the one” was when we would argue or disagree and still be best of friends. Also meeting her parents and getting along with them was one of the strong indicators that we would work. Because, as they say, you’re really marrying the parents!”

Did you stress over choosing the ring?

“I did not. I gave her a nice watch because we kept our engagement private for a couple months, between family and close friends, since I had accepted an assignment with an agency that would take me away for the summer months. We didn’t want her to be left, bombarded with all sorts of questions while I was gone. When I returned we went ring shopping together.”

How did you propose? 

“It was on her birthday, so I pretended that I had a whole event planned out for the occasion. I had scouted out a location, where I hiked a trail that went around a lake for a few miles. Towards the end of the trail I had gone off-trail and prepared a place, initials carved into a tree. When we got to that spot I spread a blanket. We had prepared a picnic, with a special fancy picnic basket that her dad gave to us as a gift after I met with him to ask his daughter’s hand in marriage. She thought it was a birthday gift. As we were sharing our picnic together I pulled out a wooden box I had made, which contained the watch that I purchased. I got on one knee and asked her if she would marry me. I already knew the answer… 😉 “

Do you wish you had done it differently now? 

“I would not have done it differently. However, if I could go back maybe I’d skip the part where I lock my keys in the car when we got to our destination.”

What did you think when you saw her walking down the aisle toward you on your wedding day?

“I’m a sensitive soul. I do cry. And if I remember correctly, I shed some joyful tears when I saw her walking towards me. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.”

How did you know that she was the one? 

“I knew that Laura was the one because she is beautiful and I couldn’t get her out of my brain, and more importantly when are together she makes me laugh and understands me, and I could/can talk to her about anything and she would listen and make me feel better!”

When did you know that she was the one?

“I knew Laura was the one pretty much right away, I can’t think of one moment that made me know, just in general being with her, being comfortable with her, and having the feeling of I’m willing to work to make her happier and our relationship better and closer.”

Did you stress over choosing the ring?

“I did not stress over choosing a ring, I had a good idea of what Laura wanted, I had a budget that I wasn’t going to go over and I knew that ultimately the ring was just a symbol of our love and not something that Laura would get upset over the design, look, or size of the ring.”

How did you propose?

“We went on a mini hike on her birthday to a waterfall that I knew she liked.  While were there we walked down to the waterfall and I popped the question! 

Do you wish you had done it differently now? 

“The only thing I wish I had done differently was I wish that me proposing could have been a bigger surprise.  She didn’t know exactly when and didn’t know how I was going to do it, but I knew that she knew it was going to happen soon, and I think when we were taking our mini hike she had a very good idea it was going to happen then.”

What did you think when you saw her walking down the aisle toward you on your wedding day?

“I remember feeling nervous for Laura, because I knew she didn’t want all the attention on her..and as a bride on her wedding day I knew there was going to be a lot of attention. I was thinking how beautiful she looked and I remember looking at her dress and all the work she put into our wedding being amazed at how smoothly it was going and our friends and family being able to experience this moment with us was special.  I was also excited for Laura to get up there with me!”

Ask your husband these same questions and see what they say! You may be surprised to hear their answers and what they have to say! And men! There is hope for you, even if you are super nervous to pop the questions!  Just know that there is an end to this planning and you’ll have answers like this one day for yourself. Happy planning!
