A woman should never propose marriage to her man. I mean, I did a bit of research around the web and it’s obvious as to why, but I’ll spell it out anyway:
Because unless he takes the initiative how else is she supposed to know if he’s really committed to her?
Him saying yes to a proposal isn’t enough of a commitment. It’s a completely different thing to her saying yes if he asked her, of course. Why? Because it’s different, that’s why.
Because it’s emasculating.
There’s nothing worse than having a woman tell him she thinks he’s amazing and the pick of the bunch. Can you imagine how much that would ruin his self-esteem?

Whilst the bride and groom were having their photos taken after the wedding, we snuck off and explored the castle unaccompanied and unhindered. So here’s what we found hidden inside…
