Won’t you make your marriage proposal?

In the bathroom, 5-years-old Taka suddenly asked me “Won’t you make your marriage proposal?” walking around the edge of the bathtub.

I know he is copying the phrase in a TV commercial of a Japanese news paper publisher, Asahi-shimbun. The commercial suggests to make a marriage proposal filling the page of the news paper, printing like “Please marry me, Juliet.” with very large letters. I don’t think this is a good idea…

As for myself, I didn’t proposed by my husband. I was the one who wanted to get married, but he was not as it is a common matter for a man of age 30, so I rushed him to marry me and prepared for marriage by myself and finally, you know, we’ve got married.

I felt a little bit sad about this missing a marriage proposal from my boyfriend-now my husband, but recently, in 8 years of marriage life, I found one good thing about this.

When I have a fight with my husband, I can think like this;

“Well, I’m the one who decided to marry him. I’m the one who chose him. This life is my decision, not his. So, I should fine the good way to live with him.”

Sound like sour grapes? Maybe…YES!
