The woman told readers that she was thinking of tricking him into going to their wedding.
Forgetfulness can happen but telling your partner that you had no idea that you proposed is plain weird. Also, not to mention the heartbreak you'd cause your partner. However, such an incident happened. One bride planned her wedding for seven months only to realize her fiancé had no recollection of the proposal.
According to 7News, a woman took to social media to share her bizarre story. She started the tale by telling readers that her boyfriend had asked her to marry him several months ago. "Nine months ago my (who I thought was) fiancé asked me to marry him," wrote the woman on Facebook, according to 7News.
Though he did not have a ring during the proposal, the woman was thrilled. She just wanted to be with him and was ready to wait for the ring. "He didn’t have a ring so I assumed it was a spur of the moment decision, but I am a chill woman... I understood the ring will come later and all that matters is we have each other," said the bride-to-be.
The excited bride did not wait too long. Soon after accepting his proposal, she started planning her big day. She wanted to have her dream wedding and everything was right on track. But the moment when she told her partner about going dress shopping is when all hell broke loose.
The man looked bewildered by the dress shopping idea and said that he never proposed to her. "I have been planning my dream wedding for seven months now. When I told him I was going dress shopping, he looked at my(sic) like I have five heads. Long story short, he claims he never proposed to me!" wrote the woman.
Her partner's response left her stunned. However, it took an ugly turn in a matter of seconds. The woman revealed that her partner further went on to say they were not even dating. “He said ‘Why would I propose to a woman I’m not even dating?’” recounted the woman.
She further told readers she was thinking of tricking her partner into going to their wedding. “I’m thinking of tricking him into coming to our wedding and just seeing what happens,” wrote the woman. She added, "Not too sure what else I could do.”
The bride's post confused the readers and they were divided. Some opined that the bride might have misunderstood the man. “It’s gotta be that... like she grabbed him a snack while she was up and he said ‘Ugh marry me” or something and she ran with it," wrote one. Another stated, "She probably said something clever or cute and the guy said ‘Will you marry me?’ tongue in cheek.”
Meanwhile, there were others who thought the man was playing games and manipulating the woman. "Everyone’s talking about how [bizarre] the woman is, but no one is talking about how the dude might have been gaslighting her the whole time," wrote one. Another added, "I 100% believe this could happen because more than one boyfriend has asked me to marry him (either drunk and/or sociopath). If I were a bit more naive I could see myself taking it seriously. But yeah, some guys DO do this. Not normal guys, but some guys."
Some even shared similar experiences. “This happened to me. Proposed, planning a wedding without a ring, used the ring money to buy a hunting licence(sic) and bow then asked me what the hell I was talking about when I brought up my ring." wrote one woman.
