Proposal Stories

Siobahn & Gene

Gene & I had been together for 2.5 years last September. His job requires him to travel to Manhattan from our home in upstate NY regularly. While I was at home battling with chemo and sick as a dog, he was at the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001.

That day made me realize how much he meant to me. I knew I didn't want to lose him. If he made it back to me alive, I wanted to marry him. Gene, however, had other ideas. He always told me he didn't want to get married again and was quite adamant against it. We weren't planning on having any children so there was not that much reason, in his opinion, to wed.

In January of 2002, we met with our financial planner to discuss our strategy for investments and whether we could retire early as we planned. I was late getting home from work (as usual) and was introduced to our financial planner who congratulated me. I was puzzled but I let it pass. He went on to explain that he was congratulating me on my upcoming marriage. Of course, I answered "To whom?". So, actually, the financial planner proposed. I was stunned, to say the least.

Gene actually went so far as to get the financial planner to give me the engagement ring several weeks later! I keep expecting him to be the one saying "I do" in October!
