I respectfully disagree with the original post.

Well, this is open for debate. I don't have any hard data. I've just noticed that in my circle of friends the guys who made a big fuss about proposing were the ones whose wives later acted the worst.

It's just my view that, begging a woman to get married, even in jest, starts the marriage on the wrong foot. I think it's dangerous to view a marriage proposal as "trivial". It's a symbolic event and the way you do it will be remembered by her forever even if you've forgotten it.

Wives are constantly testing to see what they can get away with. I spend huge amounts of effort keeping my wife from getting out of control, though in a loving way. This is an example of setting that standard.
