Marriage proposal ..

I want to sincerely thank Duolingo for helping me in learning my girlfriends mother tongue and in doing so, gaining the ability and confidence to ask her dad if I can marry her.. Grazie!!!

Did you know that "esposas" in Spanish means both "wives" and "handcuffs"? Una coincidencia? :)

Felicidades!

So cool!!! You'll LOVE being married, I promise! It will have it's ups and downs but just stick it out with your forever person. It is SO WORTH IT! <-----------married to my handsome Prince Charming (King Arthur look alike from Merlin) for 11 years! Together for 13! He is still absolutely gorgeous but even if he wasn't gorgeous I'd still love him forever and stick with him forever. It is WORTH every moment!

I agree. It takes work, I've only been married two years, and it's the most difficult/most wonderful thing I've ever done. Feels like yesterday when I was asking her dad for his blessing..

Oh, that's so romantic!!! Congratulations! :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TanteGeorgette

Wow, that's amazing!! Congrats!! Bonne mariage!! (ok, I'm only on level 6 french!:)

Hope i could learn some Egyptian/ Arabic for my bf.. his mother-tongue language. (Maybe it will be included in Duolingo Languages in the "near" future?!) Our common language is English, just for coomunication purposes. We communicate somehow, but thats the main point ;P Good Luck with your proposal...!! (I'm the romantic kind.. definitely she will love it!! ) ^^

I would love to learn Arabic


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DanzaItalia

That's cute, I wish someone would take the time to do that for me!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MeghanTighe

Congratulations! I am assuming her Dad said yes. :)

You made my day.

Congratulations! I'm doing the same soon ;o)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ruth-mac

Hopefully it's not the same girl! ;-) Good luck with that OldShoe!

What a great love story.

That's incredibly cute! Maybe one day I'll be fluent enough in German to have conversations with my boyfriend's mother (and hey, maybe I'll be the one to ask for permission to marry)!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/smearedink

I've been observing for awhile now, and I believe that Duolingo's primary objective is to help people get married.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anonyduck

This explains some of the German phrases I have learnt... 'A motorcycle? For a wedding? Why not a house?' 'She has three relationships.' 'That is her wife.' And, most usefully, for me: 'Your cat is your family.'


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/smearedink

I like that motorcycle one, I wish we had it in French. As it stands, I am afraid to plan a French wedding because of the possibility of receiving motorcycles.

At least we have "She wants a young couple" in French. That's bound to be useful!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PaulMEdwards

You can meet the nicest people on motorcycles!

    I also saw "I want a woman" :D


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SophiaGucciardi

    Well, if you want to flirt, I've heard "Your cow is beautiful" is a surefire way to get a girl.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Albrechtion

    Lol I've gotten that one too... I believe I left some comment in the form of a rather crude joke


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ricaloca

    Yeah, but watch out for "I don't talk to lawyers" and "How many are against us?" You know the bad times are coming.

    Edit: it's obvious THIS couple won't need these phrases, though! With the DL community supporting them, should be a lifetime of happy memories ahead!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Anonyduck

    Yes, and my congrats to PeterC93 (soz got a bit sidetracked with Duo's quirks ;) )


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/exocoetus

    and "she never wears clothes" :))


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jnderington

    Haha that made me laugh so hard. I have thought this whole time that some of the sentences are strange but I have only finished the first checkpoint so not to weird yet. I can't wait to get to those.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Racinewrites

    I always wondered about "Sie schläft in seinem Bett."


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Trang.

    I almost fell off my chair when seeing this lol


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ryan2CuervoRojo

    Ha, "a cat is your family"! That's funny, yet very true! ;3
