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..

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!! ) ^^

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)!

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

October 15, 2013

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.'

October 15, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/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!

October 15, 2013

https://www.duolingo.com/PaulMEdwards

You can meet the nicest people on motorcycles!

I also saw "I want a woman" :D

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

July 14, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Albrechtion

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

November 23, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/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!
