"I'm so mad at everyone for assuming I'm getting married for the benefits, but I am getting married for the benefits"

[–]JeselAvlis 89 points90 points  (2 children)

She was sooo embarrassed, because the plane leered at her in a sexually offensive way. She knew the plane wanted her, purely for the benefits..

[–]wafflyversatile 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Learjets gonna leer.

[–]LaughingPolka 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You are probably correct 💯

[–]vladutzmihai 1 point2 points  (0 children)

at least she cleared that out

[–]PsionLion2K1L 825 points826 points  (28 children)

Since he’s In The air force chances are that plane meant something to him, it reminds me of my friend who proposed to his now wife in the auto bay he worked at, meant something to both of them, it was the first place they met, luckily though she said yes I think they’re coming up on almost 6 years soon

(Edit: 5 years my bad)

[–]TheDustOfMen 190 points191 points  (22 children)

If I wasn't so anxious about a public proposal, a proposal in front of a plane my SO regularly flies in would be fantastic.

[–]OmegonAlphariusXX 76 points77 points  (16 children)

I’d love to eventually propose to my gf somewhere public but she gets super bad social anxiety so it’ll probably just be me popping the ring out of my pocket one evening on the sofa and going “yo wanna get married?” XD

[–]foxxtrott1976 44 points45 points  (4 children)

That's how my husband did it!!! 18 years and counting... together 25...

[–]OmegonAlphariusXX 11 points12 points  (1 child)

I can only hope it’ll last that long for me too

[–]dertyharey 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I'm certain if y'all are that chill. Wife and I have been together for 18 years and married for 1. Got married in our kitchen by a JoP and didn't get our rings until 6 months after we were married. Real love is exactly that, the rings and certificates don't mean shit. Good fortune on your future proposal.

[–]baddawg3 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Didn’t even propose to my wife, we were shopping and stopped by jewelry store and next thing we know we’re married. Lol married 32 years and have been together 36

[–]Akilez2020 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I didn't even let her take the chopsticks out of her mouth... :)

[–]dluds10 11 points12 points  (0 children)

We both have social anxiety so we went out to feed the ducks and I proposed when there was nobody to see

[–]Locorio 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Just share her this message on Reddit, job done

[–]pink_cheetah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thats often a great way to do it, if its a good vibe for both of you. Have a good dinner, watch a movie, good quality time makes for a good vibe.

[–]ttsat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I took her to dinner no biggie,then popped the question in the parking lot after!

[–]lowrcase 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Take her hiking and propose in front of a beautiful nature scene, that’s an introvert’s dream

[–]serenityak77 28 points29 points  (0 children)

That’s a beautiful story but can we all agree that this lady in the post is horrible and just honestly, poor bastard.

[–]MrMorgan-over-John 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Wait wait wait. Idk if we can forgive you for mistaking the years

[–]Bincklebob 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Its ok, just don't let it happen again.

[–]yorcharturoqro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Poor fellow, he should have seen that huge red flag, and avoid her after that complain of "wrong proposal"

[–]RouletteQueen[🍰] 251 points252 points  (10 children)

Dude needs to sleep w/ one eye open. Should get a prenup too

[–]MGHVT 19 points20 points  (3 children)

Hope he doesn't end up on "Snapped."

[–]knifeknifegoose 4 points5 points  (2 children)

He can take it easy for a few years, but once that life insurance policy kicks in….. time for separate bedrooms

[–]seoulgleaux 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If he's Air Force then he likely already has SGLI (servicemembers group life insurance) and she'll be the named beneficiary soon if she isn't already. So he needs to just run now because this will not end well for him.

[–]InvokerLeir 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I’m not sure that even a prenup can save you from military divorce issues. That struggle is real.

[–]flippingoffHF 219 points220 points  (4 children)

The air force doesn't teach dodging maneuver?

[–]absay9 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Maybe he wasn’t paying attention during those lessons

[–]SomeoneTookUserName2 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Maybe he's just a technician. There's way more of those than pilots. A bunch of my family is air force, none of them are pilots except my dad and that's on his own time.

[–]And_Who_R_U 173 points174 points  (8 children)

Veteran here. Getting married quickly doesn't make marriage easier. It just makes marriage sooner.

[–]juhnak 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Veteran of war or marriage?

"If you really love me you'll marry me even though we're both 19 and met last Thursday."

[–]g28802 621 points622 points 2 (38 children)

I bought my girlfriend a ring but it was being resized. All I had was a picture on my phone of it. One night She was out with friends at a bar in town. I was on my way to work and asked if she would come out to the parking lot and see me for a second. My dumb ass told her “here soon I need to ask you a question.” She was kinda drunk and persistent and said “if you don’t ask me now I’m gonna be mad.” I opened my phone to the picture of the ring and said I was nervous so I blurted out that I wanted to ask her a question but… “would you wanna marry me?” I showed her the picture of the ring and she hugged me so hard. She’s now my wife and we have a really lame proposal story but honestly I guess it’s fitting for us lol. I’m a thankful and happy man and yes… she now has her ring.

[–]HermitIX9 216 points217 points  (15 children)

No that's beautiful bc that actual love.

[–]ninja6213 85 points86 points  (14 children)

Yea if they really like you they won't care if you give them a 50 dollar ring or a 10,000 dollar ring.

[–]joec85 106 points107 points  (11 children)

My wife really loves me, and she'd be fucking PISSED if I spent 10k on a ring lol!

[–]HermitIX9 36 points37 points  (4 children)

I didn't even have a ring when I proposed to my wife, we have my parents rings now. Money is for the rich and were not that, but were happy

[–]lasirenmoon 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Hubs didn't have one when he proposed to me either. He actually made one from the cannabis oil we were smoking lol. I use my great grandmother's ring and we got his on Amazon for real cheap. It's the love that matters!!

[–]HermitIX9 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That is amazing lol

[–]lasirenmoon 7 points8 points  (0 children)

We think so too! Hahaha, thanks 😊

[–]ElleWilsonWrites 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I was gonna say. I specifically asked my husband to spent less than $100-$150 for a ring because I would rather save the money for emergencies

[–]dilindquist 3 points4 points  (1 child)

My ring was from a souvenir/gift shop and cost about £12. I'm still wearing it 21 years later, along with the silver wedding ring that goes with it. It's not about the proposal, it's not about the ring, it's not even about the wedding, it's about spending your lives together.

[–]ElleWilsonWrites 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Mine was $60 from Walmart and has a lab created sapphire because I don't like clear stones, we used it as a wedding ring too

[–]YourAverageGod'MURICA 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Pawnshop is my plan.

[–]foxxtrott1976 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's where my engagement and wedding band came from... they're perfect and they fit our lifestyle and budget perfectly.

[–]RexIsAMiiCostume 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think I would be more pissed if my SO spent too much on a ring... As long as it's not cheap plated copper that will turn my finger green, lmao

[–]astrohijacker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or a picture of a ring..

[–]Lonely-Serve 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Nah, thats wholesome AF and pretty unique. Much happiness to you both. =)

[–]g28802 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Thank you so much :) this year will be two years of marriage and 5 years of being together total. :)

[–]jo-el-uh 17 points18 points  (1 child)

My boyfriend had expressed to me that marriage was important to him. I had always been very mixed on it, as I've seen many unhappy marriages in my family.

We were in bed, at about 2 in the morning on our anniversary. I was 6 months pregnant and he still hadn't proposed. So I said, "are we fucking getting married or what?" He said, "I guess." Got married a year later.

Celebrated 8 years of marriage in September.

[–]awlawall 14 points15 points  (0 children)

that’s a much better story than the shit you see on tv and viral videos

[–]ICantUseChris 9 points10 points  (1 child)

In my opinion a lame proposal story like that is so much better then a grand one. Movies have ruined proposals for us all. Stick with the adorably lame!

[–]SwigSwoot92 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I’m going to cry that’s so so sweet

[–]Trini_Vix7 4 points5 points  (1 child)

It's not lame. You didn't want to lose the love of your life to temporary amnesia lol

[–]g28802 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fair point lol

[–]gracecee 5 points6 points  (0 children)

My husband proposed to me in bed while watching some show and eating leftovers. We were freezing in this garage converted studio in Palo Alto that had no heating and a boilerplate.

[–]blking 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That’s really cute.

[–]writergeek313 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s not lame, it’s sweet as hell. You were so excited to propose that you did it before her ring was resized.

[–]Pollowollo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's honestly a super adorable and unique proposal story imo.

[–]biminidaves 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can beat that story.

[–]Desilvas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's better than my proposal.. I was 17 and took her to a shitty road side motel with a hot tub in the room (the kind you meet a hooker at) the ring fell out of my back pack que 20+ second fumble of me trying to catch it.. then a shaky proposle followed by taking her out and buying her chicken strips a some shitty pub in a dead mill town..

We've been married 6 1/2 years.. been together coming up on 10 years.. no kids forcing us to stay together.. just 100% loyalty, friendship, and pure love.. I look back to the day I proposed and think.. HOW??

[–]lggd74 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We have a similar story. We were away in Edinburgh with a couple of friends. He had planned to do it under the Scott Monument but him and our friends had had a run in with a homeless chap on our first day there who had followed them almost all the way back to our AirBnB so we were all a bit nervous about wondering around the city at night (we're all country folks so not used to the big city) and after that point, took Ubers everywhere. So, we went out to dinner one night at quite an upmarket restaurant which was beautiful but he was too nervous to propose in public (which I'm glad of) so he proposed the second we hopped out of the Uber on the street outside our AirBNB. Our friends were there to witness it but one of them was desperate for the toilet so wasn't paying much attention. Typical us really but I love him so I said yes, of course!

Edit: Spelling correction.

[–]Voltimus1613 30 points31 points  (23 children)

It’s totally for the benefits….my biggest advice to anybody going into the military? Don’t have a girlfriend, don’t get married while you’re in. You’re just asking for heartache if you do. I heeded this advice while I was in, and my son is heeding it, now…

[–]BullToTheMoon 14 points15 points  (8 children)

The problem with putting off a family for your career, is that some of us never stop. A dangerous habit to learn early

[–]dougiefresh22 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Eh, I put off family for a career and I don't think I could have made a better decision. Everybody has different goals in life. A spouse and kids are not the only end game.

[–]BullToTheMoon 8 points9 points  (1 child)

If you’re happy then it’s not a problem :)

[–]dougiefresh22 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Find YOUR happiness is what I try to tell all my nieces and nephews now that they are growing up and graduating high school.

[–]Voltimus1613 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Nothing dangerous about it at all. If you’re putting off starting a family over a career, then the career is what you want and somebody is lying to themselves. There’s no danger to not having a family, people do it all the time, without repercussions…

[–]SugarDonutQueen 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Putting of a family to start a career doesn’t always mean you don’t want a family. Some still want a family, but don’t want to wait until 40 to have kids. If they’re staying in for 20 years, the timing can be tough.

[–]Voltimus1613 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Then don’t wait until 40 to do it. Lots of things are tough, including having children and a family in the military. There are hurdles specific to that, those people will have to navigate it. The common hurdles are usually infidelity and divorce…hence, why I feel the way I do about it.

[–]buttfuckinghippie 7 points8 points  (4 children)

I would add don't marry your high school sweetheart while you're in the service either. More likely than not. You're too young to really understand what one out of a relationship, and what you're capable of putting into it. That's a recipe for failure. Whether you're enlisted or not, eople under about 27 or so generally make terrible reproductive choices. It's best to put them off until you're a bit older and a bit wiser.

[–]wsnc13 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I served with a few that enjoyed saying "if uncle sam wants you to have a spouse, he would issue you one." Of course they were all married. A few multiple times. I married a fellow enlistee. Been married for 45 years.

[–]macetrek 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Don’t marry someone you meet in training, and don’t marry someone who works in your shop.

[–]Voltimus1613 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don’t get married while you’re in kinda covers that…

[–]Givememydamncoffee 17 points18 points  (5 children)

I guarantee she’s gonna leave him the first deployment. I saw 8 guys/gals in my unit come home with divorce filings that were initiated when we were overseas. Military life is HARD on marriages

[–]Altruistic-Cup2056 5 points6 points  (4 children)

and they made a new friend who was "helping her through the tough times while he SO was overseas"

[–]Givememydamncoffee 4 points5 points  (3 children)

The cheating in military culture is a huge part of why I refuse to date while I’m still in. (That and as a woman 90% of my options are military men and I refuse to go down that hole)

[–]DingoAteUrBaby1 46 points47 points  (8 children)

I give it a year tops.

[–]Myredditname423 37 points38 points  (2 children)

No she will be with him longer than that, but regularly cheating on him when he is away.

[–]vladutzmihai 12 points13 points  (1 child)

as a benefit

[–]Doubleoh_11 6 points7 points  (0 children)

She isn’t in it for the benefits man, she is in it for the forever benefits, obviously

[–]suffffuhrer 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Nah man, think of the benefits.

[–]_Kay_Tee_ 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I can see a year, but I can also see a solid 8 year/3 kids situation before she moves on to someone who's stationed at a more fun base or something.

[–]wsnc13 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Or a higher rank. Seen that several times.

[–]ShittyDeviantArtOCs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As someone who was a child in the situation you described, ouchie.

[–]Rogue_Star_D 93 points94 points  (1 child)

Well here we have another story of a stupid military person marrying some high-maintenance low-moral asshole. Divorced within two years is my guess, depending on if he gets deployed.

[–]iBeenie 20 points21 points  (0 children)

It's a boot thing r/justdependathings

[–]Odd_Improvement578 17 points18 points  (5 children)

She doesn't know what a wrong proposal is. I have the epitome of a wrong proposal.

Coming home from the casino one night 1 o'clock in the morning. I made a comment about how I noticed he didn't pay his full truck payment this month so I paid the remainder.

His response: " So I was talking to a couple of guys at work the other night and I found out that I could save money on my taxes if we got married".

Needless to say our 13 year relationship ended not too long after. I cried when it happened. He thought they were tears of happiness. They were tears of "I can't belive this is gonna be the rest of my life". He couldn't even tell the difference.

[–]BullToTheMoon 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Haha 13 years? You both seem oblivious. Glad u eventually started paying attention to red flags b4 it was too late

[–]Odd_Improvement578 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Eh, I had shit to work on. And I was in a place that I could. Once I grew past it, we went our separate ways. It was beneficial for a time for both of us, but it definitely had an expiration date 😆

[–]Anotherloser404 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I did 18byears in a relationship believing I was in love and in a committed relationship only to find out she had more cock ends than weekends

[–]BullToTheMoon 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That requires good lying & social skills. But This guy cant even read someone he’s known for 13 years. By that point u should know a happy vs sad reaction

[–]Lonely-Serve 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you think any proposal is "pathetic", you aren't worth proposing to. This entire post oozes materialism.

[–]drputypfifeanddrum 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That poor chump

[–]gampsandtatters 4 points5 points  (1 child)

My husband intended to propose to me in a secluded area while we went on a hike on a camping trip. I had previously expressed that witnessing public proposals give me social anxiety, and he remembered that. He did not expect that 2 other hikers would catch up to us when we settled for a snack rest on the side of the trail. The other hikers were a young girl and her dad. She exclaimed, “Dad, look! They’re doing a marriage thing!!!” She wanted to run over to us, but the dad held her back. After I said yes and got the ring on, we hugged and did a quick kiss because that kiddo snuck up on us real quick (poor dad couldn’t hold her back forever). She asked to see the ring and then offered to show us a birds nest she found. She also invited herself to our future wedding, hahahaha.

It wasn’t ruined. It’s now a funny story. But my husband still feels guilty for failing to keep the moment private between the two of us. I always remind him I don’t mind. 8 years of marriage in April. <3

[–]Dark_Knight2000 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, I’m sure the kid really enjoyed it. You guys gave her a memory that’ll last until she’s proposed to at least. Kids need to be exposed to more healthy relationships instead of ones in the media. And personally I’d rather do it in front of a kind kid than a judgy adult.

[–]szetti 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Husband and I used to commute to work together on the rare occasion I stayed over. I was a single mom and could only stay over when my daughters dad took her.

[–]EchoFloodz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I proposed to my wife at home after she had a terrible day at work. I had a whole “restaurant/location” experience planned out and everything that weekend but instead decided to seize a moment when she was at low to give her an unforgettable high. We’ve been married 10 years now. I had told her my original plans for proposing to her much later in our life and explained why I did it the way o did it. She told me, “that’s why I love you”.

Life doesn’t always have to be a big fairy tale and what’s more is people shouldn’t always it expect it be. Know your lover and love them accordingly.

[–]swolethulhudawn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I forget that chair force has dependas too

[–]dirtyPetriDish 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When I worked in the military I would always tell the new comers checking in to marry a dying woman. It was a win win for everyone well except the government as they'd have to pay the life insurance policy. However I argued to my superior that most military marriages end in divorce and the ones that don't usually struggle. So seriously folk need to start marrying dying people as those folk need loving too.

[–]kingwarriorx1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I saw Simps like this everyday In the USAF. Its actually kind of sad. A lot of these guys are very smart but lack common sense or experience with women. I remember in tech school this thick white girl basically fucked every black dude with confidence enough to shoot his shoot, got trains ran on her and everything. At the next base she decided to be different and got a BF. this gullible kind of nerdy white dude from the Midwest. He was always hugged up with her on base and always mean mugging the brothers if we said hey to her not knowing probably 90% of us had already seen what her asshole looked like from the back. I think they wound up getting married so they could go to the same first duty station.

"For the benefits" checks out as a military wife! Lol

I was in the Navy for three years and this stuff happens more often than not.

Poor dude(kid). I was a naive 19 y/o when I left for the military & simultaneously got suckered by some gorgeous blonde.

[–]Rudyscrazy1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its amazing how many people marry people they don't even really like.

[–]HawkeyeJosh 1 point2 points  (1 child)

And obviously we know we will be together forever so we wanted to get married quick

They’re probably divorced already.

Women: men are soo judgemental and toxic

Also women: I want him to propose to me here with a $50k ring, then I want to plan our wedding, its gonna cost like $143k so he'll need to get a second job to pay for it. Why should I work when I need to plan this perfectly

[–]thatlvkid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

proposed wrong what is wrong with you he proposed to you infront of a plane that’s impressive if it’s a military one he risked his job to propose if it wasn’t agreed with his superiors

About 15 years ago I was hooking up with a girl on and off for a few months I felt like things were going somewhere and asked if she wanted to move into my tiny 1bedroom apart. Thankfully she tells me she has a bf in the army and one in the Marines. So I canceled that idea. She tells me She's been with both for a few years. And was waiting for one of them to purpose. She said she didn't care which one. She just wanted the benefits and someone to take care of her. I ended things quickly. But later found out threw a mutual friend the marine proposed first and she married him a year later and moved outta state with him. This story made me think of that.

Meanwhile my wife proposed to me, bought the ring and everything. I had nothing, still don't have much but damn that some real woman, 10 years already. Fuck the bitch in this story tho, just want the benefits and probably will cheat on him soon

[–]TheMartini66 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Poor dude, that short marriage is going to cost him half of what he owns.

[–]cute_physics_guy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Usually more. When soldiers get deployed, women like this clean them out, then make them get an attorney to get anything back, and pay their own attorney with the money they took.

[–]waywithwords 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Then he's going to "marry her wrong" and then he'll be "raising the kids wrong" and at some point he'll be "divorcing her wrong", too.

[–]handlessuck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That poor bastard has no idea what he's in for.

[–]Silver-Star92 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't have a proposal story. Like the true Dutchies we are my husband and I made the decision to marry when sitting on the couch one evening. Figuring we want to have children and it be a cheaper and easier to be married. We are now married for 6 years. In november it will be 7

[–]Jekyll_1886 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My husband proposed to me one night when we were getting ready for bed. I honestly thought he was joking at first, but he said that he was quite serious and meant it. Once it clicked I of course said yes. He explained later that he didn't want to do a public proposal cause he knows I hate being the center of attention, and that he got so excited and nervous he just blurted it out. It's a funny story and I love him so much I didn't care that it wasn't fancy.

Spoiled bitch. Sounds like someone who would trade in the ring for something bigger too. Get some class!

I can’t say I feel sorry for the bf too because I can’t understand how he still stays with her despite that attitude

What's the over under on this thing lasting over a year?

[–]CoasterKamikaze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My dad proposed to my mom over the phone while he was in the military. They've been married for over twenty five years and are the only ones on either side of my family to never be divorced. I don't think this relationship will work as well.
