Lesson Transcript

Will everyone marry me? Today, we are taking a look at 10 Marriage Proposal Lines.
1. Veux-tu m'épouser? "Will you marry me?"
“Will you marry me?” And I guess that one is the most common way to propose. So would you, will you? No.
2. Veux-tu me faire l'honneur de devenir ma femme? "Will you do me the honor of becoming my wife?"
And that’s how you propose to your lady friends. Now, let’s see how you propose to your men friends. We won’t. “Will you do me the honor of becoming my husband?” is what you should say to your male friend.
3. Veux-tu me rendre l'homme le plus heureux du monde? "Will you make me the happiest man alive?"
Well, veux-tu me rendre la femme le plus heureux du monde? is how a woman would say, I guess. “Will you make me the happiest woman alive?” In that case, just give me chocolate and - me rendre l'homme le plus heureux du monde, I would say.
4. Tu es celle/celui que j'ai attendu(e) toute ma vie. "You are the one I've been waiting for my whole life."
Well, keep waiting. What if you get rejected? That’s not really a proposal though. You can say it to anyone you love I guess. Cheesy!
5. Je veux être avec toi pour toujours. "I want to be with you forever."
Nothing lasts forever, people. That’s what wedding is about right? Being forever with someone, forever. Are you ready for this people?
6. T'avoir à mes côtés est ce qui me complète. "Having you by my side is what completes me."
Tu tu… I guess that’s what the heart is about. That’s sad if you’re not complete by yourself. It means you need someone else to depend on. Yeah, positive rating or reviews.
7. Je ne peux pas imaginer ma vie sans toi. "I can't imagine my life without you in it."
This feels almost like the guy is breaking up with you and you are begging him to stay. That’s the kind of sentence you see in movies. I cannot imagine my life without you. That’s how it’s done in the movies.
8. Je voudrais pouvoir tout te donner, mais j'espère que cette bague suffit. "I wish I could give you everything, but I hope that this ring is enough."
Take it. Take it now. If you are going for a diamond, you notice that all the stones that look almost like a diamond and it’s a tiny bit more shiny, but it’s way less expensive. So you should go for that one instead.
9. Je sais maintenant que toi et moi sommes vraiment faits pour être ensemble. "I know that you and I are truly meant to be together."
Ah thank you. I think so too. I love you forever.
10. Nous sommes faits pour être ensemble. "We are meant to be together."
Passion only lasts this much whereas love keeps growing. So that’s why it’s nicer when its logical because you love the person because first you can stand by yourself. So that’s nice. Then, you go along with the person because it’s normal and more logical and because you can tolerate each other, not because you are afraid of being alone.
So tell me in the comments if you would marry me and I won’t marry you. Have you ever done a wedding proposal or a marriage proposal? Let me know in the comments. Bye and don’t forget to be nice to your partner and propose to them with what you learned today.

I DEFINITELY would marry you, Lya! Since the 10th or 11th video class you watched with you hosting it, I felt in love. Are you free? Any chance? You won’t regret....
