World’s Longest Marriage Proposal
On February 14, 2006 in Raleigh, North Carolina on Valentine’s Day, Cameron Kelly asked his girlfriend Angie Kreimer to marry him by writing her a 113-page proposal and publishing it as a paperback book and received a one-word answer: “Yes.” Cameron delivered the unique proposal as a Valentine’s gift to his unsuspecting girlfriend, along with breakfast-in-bed at their home in Hillsborough, North Carolina. The book is entitled, “50 Reasons Why You Should Marry Me and 51 Reasons Why I Should…” and features a cover with an adorable photograph of the couple on a recent ski trip. Inside are 101 pages of text and 44 color photographs. “It’s a sort of prose-poem, with pictures,” says Kelly. “We already knew we were committed to each other,” says Kelly. “And we’d even talked before about engagement. But I was looking for a way to make it formal by doing something special, which also showed Angie the way I felt about her.”

Tips for a Great Valentine’s Day Proposal
Popping the question, “Will you marry me?” on Valentine’s Day has many advantages such as being very romantic and on an unforgettable date. The key to a successful proposal involves preparation, location and timing. For preparation, go shopping for a ring, be sure you have surreptitiously collected information in advance such as ring size and what style ring your sweetheart might prefer and keep the receipt. Select a location and decide on a method of surprise such as placing the ring in a wine glass or presenting it on a dance floor during a romantic song. Do not be afraid to get creative and be original and most importantly be yourself. Timing is everything as you want this very special romantic moment to coincide with your beloved’s availability and make sure the light-of-your-life is not working a double-shift or running errands. Create a sense of urgency but most of all create a moment your soulmate will never forget.
