Wow. You sure did not know her very well. Never ask a very public question unless you know the answer. YDI. And FYL for being a slow doucebag.
@76: HOLY SHIT LOL If this is real... No wonder she shot you down OP. Seriously, why so young? Were you scared you'd lose her to someone else? Well you definitely lost her now man, FYL for that, but YDI. (Before we get into a WHO CARES WHEN PEOPLE MARRY argument, obviously OP's girlfriend cares)
you all have to realize the area he lives in. he lives in nova scotia. the capital of novascotia is halifax. halifax is compariatable to a little village in ontario. people ther get engaged and married a lot younger there than in a big city. so stop worrying over how young they are. buy yeah... she shouldnt have laughed aobut it in the restaurant... especially if both parties parents where there...
109 .... so all small towns are automatically behind a couple hundred years? (I say that because you seemed to imply it happens quite frequently, and young marriage only happened quite frequently back in the olden days) Lol, our town size is 3000, next one over is 1800, and I just went to my cousin's wedding, she's 25. We're a bunch of backwards, southern Illinois rednecks, and yet we seem to be marrying just as frequently at not-so-tender ages as Chicago. Actually, don't chicks in the big cities get unplanned preggers more often, and thus probably marry young more often as well? See, I can make stupid assumptions too.
Ummm... I live in Halifax and the population is about 400,000 which, while not gigantic, does not make it a small village. We're not "backwards", or "behind the times" and there are only 6 cities in Ontario (a province about 20 times the size of Nova Scotia) larger than Halifax. So 109, I recommend doing some basic research or picking up an atlas every once in a while so that you can actually have an idea about what goes on in your country and not look like an idiot when one of us 'village folk' know more than you do and put you in your place on the internet.

Ummm, no. We don't marry at 16 here (In Halfifax). How about you visit us sometime? For our American friends, we are similar to the city of Boston, only much friendlier. Unless we've been insulted like this. And we're not like a little village. Haha oh well... I just hope you're not from Ontario, because that would be sad. Guess what? I don't own a cow OR a chicken either.
Halifax is the 13th biggest city in Canada, not the 7th (there are other provinces than Ontario and Nova Scotia). If it were in the US it would rank right around 45 (the size of Oakland). Also, New York only has a couple million more people than Toronto, which would rank number 2 in the States ("beating out" LA (Montreal is also larger than Chicago for 3rd rank, and Vancouver is about the same as Houston for number 4)), and the US as a whole only has 3 cities more than Canada with 1 million or more people (9:6). Why do people refuse to actually know things before posting shit on the internet? It takes only a couple minutes to learn these things, so do everyone a favour and stop feeding the flames of stereotyped ignorance.
no thats not true. it is possible to get married at 16 years old in canada as long as you have your parents permission first. @ the OP yeah maybe next time you should make sure that you 16 year old girlfriends actually wants to get married, i mean i don't blame her for the way she rejected you what sane person wants to get married at 16?
129: Uhm. You think people get pregnant because there's nothing else to do...? Generally... when bored, we small-town ignorants... go somewhere else, lol, not fuck randomly. I'm pretty sure you can be just as easily bored in the city, especially if you've lived there for a long time or your whole life. But either way I was being slightly sarcastic in that part of my post. Technically speaking, a large town would probably have more pregnant underaged girls, simply because there are more underaged girls to be impregnanted. Ratio speaking, I wouldn't know, and don't really care lol
To me, that's a giveaway. If someone drags along not only his family but <i>her</i> family, the focus is on him. "Look what a great proposer I am!" Meanwhile, from her point of view, her entire family and a bunch of strangers are standing there smirking at her knowingly. Literally everyone but her knew, and it's obvious that only one answer will be regarded as acceptable. She's basically just a prop in his show.
You must be a blond bitch yourself. You know nothing about her. We do know that he did not have much knowledge about his relationship with her. Is 1 dinner and romantic music all it takes for you to say "yes" to a marriage proposal? If so, we now know a lot about YOU. Like, you were probably born in New Jersey, are desperate for a guy, perhaps because you are a slut, a lard, or are an ignorant 14 year old.
Umm....he never said it was his "new" or "recent" girlfriend....I don't get why everyone's saying OP "doesn't know" her...Obviously they know each other pretty damn well, or else they wouldn't have met both sides of the family (which is a biiig step). Maybe she was surprised like, "omg no wayy!"....maybe try again, except by yourselves. My older sister did that. Her husband had to ask her twice because they had gotten into a fight, she was mad, and she was watching tv. She said "Huh? Oh, yeah. Sure."
I cringe at stories like yours. It reminds us all that stupid-ass families like yours pro-create faster than cock roaches. He DID NOT know her intimate thoughts if he went through all the expense and work to set up an elaborate event and was unsure of the outcome. OP is the type who does things and gets surprised by the outcome. He is absolutely a future top contender for a DARWIN AWARD. Now do you understand shit-for-brains?
for real, how are you gonna ask without knowing first. a proposal is made after knowing the real answer. It is made in front of people just for show, to let people know that ya'll are really getting married. YDI, i'm glad ya'll ain't gettin married and having some stupid kids there's enough dipshits out there, i bet OP believes in love at first sight.
#21: Um, how does "You were probably born in NJ" fit into any of that? You're a fucking idiot. Perhaps the person you're responding to just thinks she's a bitch because she said no to a proposal in general. She probably realizes that the guy wouldn't have proposed (with BOTH families present) if they haven't been together for a long while and expected her to say no. Again...you're a fucking idiot.
clearly you're blonde. it's called a joke because its a common stereotype that blondes are idiots. and no, not natural blondes, girls who dye their hair platinum blonde (Daisy of Love anyone?) because they think "omg that's hot." anyways. stop being an annoying little bitch. it was a joke. get over it.
This is also why you usually test the waters before making the actual proposal. Most people who are serious with each other will talk about marriage, so if the OP didn't discuss the possibility of marriage with his girlfriend before proposing, then he deserves it. Now, if he did talk about marriage with her and she sounded like she'd like to get married to him, but then she bailed during the proposal, then that's definitely a FML.

YDI it for thinking she was into you.
OH MAN!! :( She's a bitch... :( FYL DEFINITELY!
Wow that sucks. But on the flip side, why would you propose to someone without being at least 99.9% sure they were going to say "yes"?
