Marriage Proposal Disaster Stories

Tell Us Your Marriage Proposal Snafus!

Seth Rogen adorably described how his nerves led to a change of plans while proposing to actress and writer Lauren Miller last night on the premiere of Conan.

"I felt like someone had given me like a truckload of heroin to hold onto, I felt like the feds were going to kick in my door at any second. I couldn't have a conversation with my girlfriend. All I could think of was this ring."

So he decided to propose immediately, only to find her changing in the bedroom. "I'd already kind of started, and I was like 'Oh man, her [chest is] out! That's not part of the plan!'" he said. "I didn't picture it like this, and I know she didn't."

Not going as planned is what makes a proposal, or anything really, memorable. So if you're married or engaged, or ever have been, tell us what last-minute changes, faux pas, or disasters you and your intended encountered.

I would much prefer a Seth Rogan type of proposal over an elaborately planned out one. The unplanned burst of words just seems more honest.

I'm awaiting my own proposal ("soon", he says, "soon!") .. but I just had t comment on the fact that we can discuss things like the difference between clitoral/vaginal orgasm and how to deal with men who climax too soon and all kinds of risque, erotic topics ... but we censor the word titties. Basic cable can say it but Tres doesn't? I thought that was a little silly.

Well, he decided to propose on Valentine's Day. We went to dinner, where he proposed, but then we had to go to a party where a female friend of his and his sister, who had both just been through traumatic breakups, were bringing new dates. So we couldn't tell anyone that we had just gotten engaged! I found myself sitting on the couch while my husband and his friend's date (who turned out to be a total boor) got into a debate about holocaust movies. Not the romantic evening I had pictured.
