Marriage proposals these days are becoming events people long to experience. It doesn't matter if you are not the bride-to-be sef. My people, we love feferity shaaaaaaaaa. Wasn't it our parents the groom would approach many years back? It was so simple back then. Don't you wish we were back in those days? Kidding! Heck no!

Well well well... There are many cases of bride-to-be go way emotional during marriage proposals. I like the ones that do so in a cute way,  I don't freaking care if it's all staged, just make it cute. Buahahahahahahahaaaa. But you see ehn, I once saw the video of a woman who fainted. Jeez! And it was public. I so wished deep down that it was a private sontin. We would faint ourselves to death and dust off the embarrassment lol. One other girl kept running around without accepting the ring. And that was even a private proposal. Chai.

So,  my question is this? Would you prefer a private or public marriage proposal? Why? Join the conversation in the comments section.

I prefer public proposal. I know many have been messed up but I very well like the glamour that comes with it. I would not mind to be on Bella Naija o. It's just once in a lifetime, so why not?

Hmm. This proposal thing when the man needs to get down on one knee, where did it all start from sef? I nor know whether I go propose sef. Maybe I go just tell her, "Babe I wan marry, I like you, make we marry". But if I eventually go with the tide, it's because I want her to have gist to tell her friends, and it's going to be private.

Dear Future Husband,
It's our marriage. So it should be our proposal. Just us. I am indifferent to public tho. But why the stress? We'll even be more real and true to us when it's just us. We'll read all the emotions and there won't be any fakeness masked.
Thank you
