Husband Drops to One Knee and Stuns His Wife with the Ring She Lost 15 Years Ago

Nov 10, 2014 By Abraham 0

You wouldn’t expect one of the sweetest proposal videos to come from a couple that has already been married almost 40 years, but here you go…

Despite spending months looking everywhere for her missing wedding ring, Lacey Butler’s mom never found it. She finally concluded that it had gotten lost at a job site or maybe even stolen. She resigned herself to the fact that it was gone forever. That was 15 years ago.

But guess what her husband just found? It had been in a small box that had apparently been tucked out of the way for over a decade.

When he showed Lacey, they knew they had to add a twist when he gave the back to her. So he decided to use the “new” ring to ask her to marry him all over again.

Lacey says…

So here you go — my dad proposing to my mom again after 38 years of marriage with my mom and her apron, in the garage!

Lacey makes sure to note, “Maybe she was a little dramatic, but hey, it’s her missing wedding ring!”

Nov 6, 2014 By Megan Berman 0

When you’ve been in a relationship for a long time, you and your partner start to share interests. You adopt each other’s speech patterns, and even start to think the same way…until your brains completely meld together and you basically become one person, apparently.

These couples are so similar to each other after all their years that they inadvertently bought each other identical cards…

“My parents’ 30-year wedding anniversary was yesterday. These were the cards they got each other.”

“My parents got each other the same Valentine’s day card by accident.”

My dad was in Toronto for a job interview and picked up this card for my mom knowing Valentines was coming up, little did he know she got him the same card here in Ottawa. Married 32 years strong!

Wait Till You See Where This Photographer Hid to Get the Perfect Proposal Pictures

Nov 3, 2014 By Abraham 1

Photographing a proposal is tricky business, because it’s hard to get good shots of the moment without alerting those who remain unaware that the moment is about to happen.

Well, when Adam approached photographer Chance Faulkner about documenting the moment he asks Bailey to marry him, Chance had an idea.

When the time was right, Adam and Bailey went on a lovely Autumn walk. They stopped in a clearing, Adam got down on one knee, and Chance was able to get these perfect shots without Bailey having a clue…

Woman Records the 108 Catcalls She Gets in One Day on the Streets of New York

Oct 28, 2014 By Joey White 12

When director Rob Bliss‘s girlfriend told him how bad the catcalling was on New York City’s streets, he had to do something about it.

For 10 hours one day, Bliss walked around New York with a backpack that had a camera hidden inside. Following him was actress Shoshana Roberts, who simply walked around the city in jeans and a t-shirt. She faced over 10 incidents of street harrassment per hour over the course of that day.

This condensed video of that day shows what countless women face every day just walking down the street…

This Man’s Life Was Saved When His Nurses Sneaked His Dog to Him in the Hospital

Oct 25, 2014 By Megan Berman 0

Pets can often feel like a beloved member of the family: we count on their unconditional love and companionship, and in turn, they count on ours.

And for one man in Kentucky, this was especially true recently. 73-year-old James Wathen was so sick and weak that he couldn’t eat, or even speak above a whisper. James told his nurses how much he missed his dog, Bubba, and sensing that it might be their final goodbye, the care team conspired to reunite the best friends.

The only problem? The hospital didn’t allow for the admission of pets. Undeterred, James’ nurses worked in secret with the shelter Bubba had been taken to when James was admitted, and managed to sneak the little pup into the hospital…

Apparently, Bubba had also been doing poorly since he was separated from his best friend. According to the President of the shelter Bubba had been living in, he showed the same symptoms as James

The dog quit eating a week ago, which is very strange. The dog didn’t know where James was and James didn’t know where the dog was and believe it or not, they both stopped eating at about the same time.

Since the reunion, both James and his best friend have made a complete turnaround. And Bubba now has carte blanche to visit James in the hospital whenever he wants.
