The Rambles of Neil Monnery

Another pointless voice in the vast ocean that is the interweb

Hey Baby…I think I wanna marry you…

with one comment

Romance. It is all a mystery to me. However some people are a little bit better than myself and they certainly have a lot of good friends and family who can help them out if they want to do a big gesture. I’m not entirely sure how this video passed me by in 2012 but it did and when I saw it last night I cried. I genuinely cried at the beauty of it.

Embedded below is a video of Isaac as he proposes to his girlfriend Amy.

I watched it again today as I was writing this blog and I cried again – out of both eyes. If you can watch the above video without crying then I’ll be mightily impressed. If a stone-hearted cynic like myself blubs at romance then I’m pretty sure everyone would. I suppose it is just the sight of seeing genuine happiness and deep down we all love true romance no matter what we portray. We want to be happy and we love to see other people happy.

Amy’s reactions are just wonderful and how would anyone react to seeing all their friends and family take part in an event just for them?

Now the likelihood of me ever proposing is a long shot. The fact is I don’t believe in marriage and obviously the whole getting a partner thing is also an issue but if I did – and yes I know that is a big if – I would love to do something that was truly memorable. I’m sure any proposal is romantic and memorable but doing something truly out of the ordinary, original and special. Yeah that is how I’d like it to be.

Beautiful. I hope they have a long and happy life together. I truly do.

  1. I’m afraid I wasn’t so moved, partly because I hate that song, but also for other reasons.

    It’s good that Amy was so receptive, and hopefully they’ll be happy together. But suppose she hadn’t wanted to marry, or had been doubtful? There’s a HUGE amount of pressure being put on her. By that stage in the relationship she will care for him and not want to hurt his feelings, especially in front of all their mates, so she might say yes against her real wishes.

    And if she refuses? Then several of that crowd will never talk to her again, or call her a bitch for rejecting him however nicely in public. As I say the pressure just piles on and if this becomes a big trend there will be outcomes a lot less happy than this one. That, and not just my heartlessness, is why I don’t like this video as much as you.

    Now, if any ladies are reading this and want my lovin’, this is a better tune:
