A graduation can be nervewracking enough. Add to that a struggle to get your new badge pinned on that seems to take minutes not seconds. Then proposing to the woman of your dreams and hoping she says yes. Matthew Schotanus accomplished that and more when officially becoming a firefighter and EMT with Martin County Fire Rescue in Florida. Way to go, Matthew!

Bride-To-Be Gets Six Rings To Choose From

We see a ton of proposal videos here at RightThisMinute, but this very clever idea is a new one! One of the added stresses of getting engaged is making sure the ring is totally perfect and exactly what your future bride would want. Sure, you can go to the jewelry store together, but that takes away the element of surprise. Or you can be like this guy and get SIX rings so your lady love has the ultimate choice.

Man Defies Paralysis For Special Standing Proposal

Man Defies Paralysis For Special Standing Proposal

Why kneel down for a proposal when you can stand? That's what Jacob Newbern did for the lucky lady in his life, Mary Batar. She's been supporting him with her positivity ever since they found out Newbern was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that causes paralysis. After 22 days of treatment at the Orange Park Medical Center in Florida, Newbern was ready to go home, but he wanted to leave with a fiancé. After setting up a special romantic setting, he surprised Batar by revealing he could stand again and asked her to be his wife! Such a touching moment for the duo of five years that are also parents to 10-month-old twin girls, Kallie and Kinsley, as well as a 3-year-old daughter, Braelynn, according to ABC News. All the best to the happy couple! View Now

A Very 'Titanic' Proposal!

A Very 'Titanic' Proposal!

If you've ever seen the movie "Titanic," you know one of the most infamous scenes is when Jack joins Rose for a first-class dinner, later giving her a note to meet him at the clock tower by the Grand Staircase. The clock tower is also the setting for many important parts of the movie, so keep that in mind as you watch this video! Jeremy Brown decided to surprise his girlfriend Mori Madrid during a tour of the Titanic Museum Attraction in Tennesee. The couple are huge "Titanic" fans, so it was only fitting that Brown got down on one knee, asked Madrid to marry him and presented her with a replica of the movie's famous "Heart of the Ocean" necklace all as music from the movie played. Is it any wonder that Madrid said yes? (Also if you're a big fan like us, you'll realize this is very similar to the final scene from the movie where everyone claps and watches Rose and Jack kiss ❤️). View Now
