I've got the ring and I am proposing.

Recommended Posts

Okay, spare me the "don't get married" crap. I have an amazing woman and I love her, and I am honestly lucky to even have been with her as long as I have.

So, I have got the blessing from here parents, bought the ring, and I am planning to propose soon.

I am thinking about doing it the week after Easter. We both have the week off and our families are going to be at the beach anyways.

She has always wanted to go to Charleston, so I am thinking about making up something with her parents about how they got free tickets to something down there (giving us an excuse to go and hopefully keeping her surprised).

I have never been down there, but I heard it was beautiful. It seems like a good opportunity to take her to a place she wants to go badly, as well as popping the question.

I have heard that the battery is pretty awesome, and white gardens too. Sullivan's Island?

Thoughts? Advice on Charleston?

The only don't get married crap you'll get from me is to make sure you're 110% certain she's THE ONE... AND that she thinks 110% that you are THE ONE for her... If she is and you are, then marriage can be great, and I'm happy for you.

Charleston is very nice... watch out for the sang gnats this time of year, they will carry you off.

Pretty much anything that you do that is from the heart will be appreciated I'm sure.

Charleston has the third longest among cable-stayed bridges in the Western Hemisphere. Also, would make a good place to jump from instead of making this horrific mistake you are speaking of.

Just kidding. Congrats!

Definitely get some low country food while your there. Best I've ever had was while there. Seafood omelets, shrimp and grits, etc. Good stuff!

Congrats, it is a fun ride.

The only advice I have is for both of you to strive to give more than your 50% to the relationship, as it actually requires 100% from both parties.

Oops. I have more. Communicate. Also, the best way to avoid temptations of all kinds is to avoid situations where it comes up.

Ok, done.

Charleston? Was just there last summer. Had a great time. We stayed at the Mills House, but probably should have gone with the French Quarter Inn.

Food: Peninsula Grill and Magnolias were memorable, but I'm a tourist and people on this board are locals and know a hell of a lot more than me.

We've been dating for four years, and I do not know how it has happened.

I am definitely "marrying up" and I am not even rich!

She would kill me if she knew I posted this.

really? my brother in law does that with his wife and it creates all kind of issues...guess it really depends on the couple. He is in a situation where he makes a lot more money than his wife and uses that as his "trump" card I think.

My husband makes more money than I do too but he doesn't play like that.

I always use a debit card..he prefers cash.. ..I know exactly how much there is in there because I'm the only one in my account and vise versa..

this has worked for us for 12 years..if I need money, I ask (which I despise) but the one thing we never ever argue about is money. When we got married we decided to keep it the way it was because it had already worked so well the 4 years prior. Why change it simply because we're married..if it ain't broke, don't fix it

Obviously when you have kids it's a little different..sure have a joint acct..but I really think that you should have your own to do with what you want
