His Post-Doc Proposal

| Romantic | May 22, 2012

(My boyfriend and I are at my apartment and standing in the kitchen, drinking wine while I make dinner. He is discussing his options for post-docs when he graduates, most of which are overseas.)

Me: “You realize that if you move overseas, I most likely can’t go with you unless we’re married.”

Boyfriend: “Yeah. Does that time frame work for you?”

Me: “Sure.”

(There is a pause as I stir the food.)

Me: “Wait. What just happened?”

(He proposed for real that Christmas, and we are now happily married and living overseas with our 1-year-old son.)
