Yes, that question!

I need some creative idea's to pop the question to the Woman. We have been together 14 yrs. Yes 14. Without getting into a long story there's been a lot of health issues in the past 5-6 years ( mostly me) that has delayed this. I've mentioned this before on here. I've come to the realization that I need to do this and not delay it any further. Health issues don't seem to go away or get better.

I'm not doing this before xmas. We just lost another young family member to Cancer, her birthday is actually coming up. It's going to be a rough xmas. My woman is just getting over a 12 month long Cancer scare a month ago as well, and we have another member with what looks to be throat Cancer. Basically it's been a really rough time, the family is quite tore up right now.

At first I thought hey it's xmas time, maybe spread some good news around the family during this rough time. But the more of I thought of it I have decided not to have a moment thats 14 yrs in the waiting to happen at this dark time. Probably January'ish maybe feb once things settle down so I have some time to come up with something clever.

We are not the type of people to spend boat loads of money on anything wedding related. So I'm looking for clever idea's, something cute/special that she'll remember.

If you have way more talent than me - write her a song.

Maybe a story song that she follows along to like a treasure hunt leading her to the hidden ring...

You could hang the ring from the Christmas tree like an ornament and send her over to "investigate" the new ornament. Then when she gets it and turns around, you be on one knee and propose...

Do it this way:

"I was going to ask you something."

"Oh," she might say expectantly, "What might that be?"

"Uh..gosh, I can't remember what it was. Must be my alzheimer's or something. Never mind."

Take the grill off your speaker cab, put ring on speaker, turn amp to ten, call her over and have her stick out her finger, get down on one knee, ask the question, hit a big E chord and hope it lands on her finger.

Play your guitar like you normally do but when she walks into the room pretend like something is off about the guitar and making a noise. Then look at the headstock and go oh can you grab that for me and have the ring dangling off a tuner post.

That sounds a lot like the "ooops. my clothes fell off" routine. :vroam:

Aside from RUN! SAVE YOURSELF!!! - My normal advice.... (and many others here it seems!)
I'll tell you what I did and maybe you'll get an idea?
I took my wife to meet my folks.... on the way back... we stopped for a break and took a walk next to the Kern River. I hopped out onto a big rock and talked her into joining me! When she did, I dropped down on one knee and asked...

It's a running joke to this day for my wife " If I hadn't said yes you'd have pushed me in the river, wouldn't you!?" To which I reply "No, not you Honey, I'd have jumped!" :D

When she's sitting at the table, walk in with the ring, slam it on the table in front of her and yell "HAPPY NOW????" and walk away. :evil:

It'll be memorable, if nothing else! Of course, this is coming from someone who proposed after sex, so...

Then again, she hasn't smothered me in 25+ years of waking up next to each other!

(Seriously, it's not the asking that has to be memorable, or the ceremony - it's everything after. Good luck!)

Since there is sadness in the air ... Give her a reasonable romantic get-a-way weekend after New Years and do it there.

I gave my wife a jar of jewelry cleaner. She looked at me, the way she's looked me a thousand times since (very puzzled...), and I said, "They had a special on this stuff. It's really expensive. But if you bought it, you got one of these..."

And I pulled out the ring...

It was the last time I was able to shut her up for 5 minutes...

I've been married and divorced twice, so you may not want to ask this question of me. BUT, speaking from experience, my advice is to keep it simple. Sincere, romantic, heartfelt, more or less one-on-one without a lot of hoopla or fanfare (NO appearances on scoreboards at sporting events, etc.!) If you've been together that long, you hopefully know each other well. Hold her hands, look her in the eyes, and speak from your heart. Your sincerity, your honesty, your love... that's what she'll remember.

Good luck to you. I wish you the best.
