I just ordered my GF a ring. I already have the location and photographer set up. She absolutely love pictures so I thought I would do that. Even though I know she will say yes I'm still absolutely nervous to do this. I guess I just need to man up about it. haha. Im not going to ask till after the first of the year so if anyone here has any good tips on this subject I would appreciate them!
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
My advice...don't do it
Think it over...
Signature goes here
Seriously though.. Congrats! I was the same way too when I did it. I knew what she was going to say. Was still nervous as all hell when it came time to do it though.
I'm the youngest here, so I can't really give you advice on marriage, but congrats!

As the King of failed relationships, the only advice I can give you is don't take my advice when it comes to relationships.
Congrats to you and your future Mrs.
Oaken, I may be the oldest guy here. I am once divorced. Please, please my friend "TAKE YOUR TIME"! what'asm another 10 - 15 years? Make damn sure she is the one because if she's not and she kicks you out, be prepared to bend over and kiss your ass, and half your assets, good bye. I am living with a pretty cool lady now buit we agree we are never going to marry. When you get older it becomes an even more important idea because if you marry, you suddenly have lost possibly everything. Since Iowa considers b oth of a married couples income when figuring how a nursing home gets paid if you should happen to land in one. All assets must be spend down before and help arrives. So if you have $750,000.00 and your new spouse brings in $30,000.00 after the nuptuals, then if either one of you or even both end up in a care center all that money has to be spent down (her $30,000 AND your $750,000) before the gov moves in to help you.
Anyway, if ya gotta do it, good luck to both of you.

That was funny.
Congrats Oak. I hope it goes well. Sounds like you have nothing to worry about. Just go with the flow.
