Check out this article on extreme marriage proposals from  It’s really amazing what some guys will orchestrate when asking their girl to be their wife.  And what’s even more interesting is the fact there are companies that assist in these extreme engagements! I think some of these tactics are a little extreme – but hey we all love to tell a great story.  But I think to plan an extravagent engagement in part to trump how your friends got engaged is plain stupid.  A marriage proposal, and a wedding is not about competition, it’s about spending the rest of your life with someone.   But I guess some of us (myself included) perpetuate this train of thought because when ever we hear that someone got engaged, we always ask two things 1) how did he do it? 2) what’s the ring look like?   Am I right?
