These are my grandparents. They were high school sweethearts and they have been married for over 65 years. Within the past year, my grandpa got sick and developed Alzheimer’s, so he lives in a nursing home now. My grandma goes to see him almost everyday, but each time she walks in he gets so surprised and excited and relieved by her presence. You can just hear the joy in his voice. It’s one of the saddest and most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced. I hope that one day I can find a marriage like theirs. They are the two most selfless people I know, and such a wonderful and pure example of love.

Ok, this is what I want to wear for our Alice in Wonderland wedding, but mine will be in red (and slightly longer in the front XD) and it should totally have armored pauldrons.
i have limited sympathy for people who get told “no” after a public proposal because public proposals are pretty much emotionally abusive
if you think it’s kinda cute, you can discuss it beforehand and then do a staged one later
but putting someone on the spot in front of a crowd of strangers (or worse, friends) and demanding they give you a yes or no answer to a complex question which will affect the rest of their life is
really not okay
