A New Way to Get Engaged | A Cup of Jo: Danny and I talked about getting married and decided, together, to get engaged. It was just two people talking about spending the rest of their lives together. I've always loved the way we got engaged, but people have said it was strange that he didn't "propose." We are equals in our relationship, we both decided to get married, and then we both made the decision to move to the next step. I really loved this article and this similar engagement story!
