I love, love, love romantic stories.
Especially when I have some inside scoop.
Though I have no idea who the fellow is who emailed with this question, I’m only posting it on the condition that we get THE REST OF THE STORY and at least a photo of the happy couple.
But first, Romeo needs our advice.
My girlfriend is currently an au pair. I want to marry her, and I’d like to propose to her soon.
However, I want to be sensitive to her situation as an Au Pair. I don’t want my proposal (and — I hope — our engagement) to have any negative effect on her Host Family. We of course would not get married until her contract is up.
What’s your advice for proposing, in a way that is sensitive to her Host Family situation?
What should I consider, so that I have her Host Family’s support?
