Unconventional Proposal Stories, KDWB And Marriages That Last

Little Boy in Toy Car Marriage Proposal

On my drive into work this morning I was listening to the Dave Ryan in the Morning show on 101.3 and they had the most interesting excerpt about wedding proposals. I found this ironic because I was just thinking about wedding blog ideas.

The discussion was about wedding proposals and how long marriages would last based on the type of proposal. Dave Ryan explained a “theory” about proposals stating that the length of a marriage is dependent upon the time, care, and effort that went into the proposal. Long story short, the more detail in the proposal, the longer the marriage. I love the whole notion of the proposal and being able to share 'The Story" with everyone. However, unlike the radio heads on KDWB I do not always think the proposal theory holds true. Sometimes marriages last a long time with the shortest, or even the most unconventional of proposals.

Dave Ryan and the rest of the crew played a game with this theory. They had people call in telling their proposal story and then would guess on whether the couple was still married. Some of the calls were hilarious. I can not remember every detail but a woman called in and said that her significant other asked her if she wanted *this (expletive reference) for the rest of her life. Half of the crew believed they were divorced because of his casual way of asking, but surprisingly they were still married…19 years later.

Dave Ryan said it best when he said it should not matter about the proposal story as much as it is hyped up to be. A true marriage will last when you still want to marry someone despite how casual, silly or insensitive a proposal might be. It is the person you want to marry, not their proposal.

I am not engaged but my significant other and I have talked about marriage. He told me he knows exactly how he wants to propose. Of course I am excited to be able to tell my "story," but in reality it doesn’t matter how he proposes; it’s the fact that he wants to propose and spend the rest of his life with me. That is what is most important.

Do you have a proposal story you want to share? Feel free to comment and share your story!

Doctor Who is now considered a British Institute and has come a long way since it first aired on November 23rd 1963. The very first show saw the Doctor travel 100,00 years into the past to help some dim cavemen discover light. After 26 seasons and seven Doctors later the series came off our screens in 1989 much to the disappointment of the huge devoted fanbase. In 1996 an attempt was made to revive Doctor Who but it wasnt until June 2005 when it came back with a vengeance with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth Doctor that put the series back on the map as it were. It then went on for 5 years with David Tenant portraying the Doctor until 2010 when Matt Smith took over the role. Today it is still a great family show and has attracted many new fans. If youre a new or old fan of the show there are Tours and museums you can go and see some of the locations and memorabilia of this classic show. The Doctor Who Tour of London will take you on over 15 locations from the show, some from the new series and some from old sites like the location of The Invasion and Resurrection of the Darleks. The tour also takes you to the TV museum in London where you will get to see some of the cosumes worn in the show and props used. Also you can buy gifts and memorabilia from the shop. You will learn all about how the shows were made so the tour is also educational. If you want to take pictures of the locations thats not a problem. Remember the front door of 10 Downing Street in Aliens of London? Well you can get up and close to this and get your picture taken in front of the door. Rose Tyler fans will love the tour as you get to drop by her home in the show. Why not go that extra mile and actually meet a Doctor Who star. Well this is possible with private or group tours. You will get the general tour but included will be a pre-arranged meeting or lunch with a celebrity from the show. This will obviously depend on availability of the celebrity and the cost will reflect the popularity of that celebrity. There are tours in London and also Wales. The Wales tours take you to Cardiff where you will see lots of location which were featured in shows since 2005. You can leave from London or at Leigh Delamere services station on the M4. There is a Doctor Who exhibition in Cardiff which you get to see. At the end of the Doctor Who tour you get a souvenir group picture sent you by email which is a nice touch. For seriously devoted Doctor Who fans there is a 3 day tour which takes you to all the locations in both London and Cardiff. You will see locations from the past 45 years as well as recent sites from the lasted Doctor Who series. Day one is based in London where you get to see 15 sites. Day two takes you to Cardiff where you get to mean the real life owner of the to see we have an Gothic property used as the location of the school in Human Nature. The final day is partly spent in Cardiff with a walking tour at Cardiff Bay, then you head back to London but a stop at Stonehenge to see the site of the Pandoica. Then its dinner at The Cloven Hoof pub in Devils End b efore you taken back to central London.
