There are a few moments in life that are so powerful and precious that they burn into your memory forever. Finding the one that you are going to spend the rest of your life with is one of those times you will never forget.
Not too long ago, a Reddit user posed the question, "What moment with your future wife made you think, 'Yup, I'm asking this girl to marry me.'?"
Their responses were phenomenal:
1. Laughing at all the wrong moments.
"Out to the movies with a big group. Stupid movie, but there was only one other person who laughed at what I laughed at. I figured out who she was. We went out. We continued to laugh at all the wrong spots in life. We have been married almost 25 years. Still laughing when no one else does." - dellpepper
2. Has the same heart
"We had been dating for about 3-4 months. We were holding hands after walking out of a store and reach the curb. Without skipping a beat, we both jump off the curb, the same as I have done since I was a little kid. My daughter and I now do it regularly. If you are still a kid at heart, find someone with a similar heart." - razorace1
"When we first moved in together and we were unpacking our books. I stepped back when we were done and I noticed we had doubles of all of our favorite novels. I remember thinking to myself, yup, she's the one." - dmasterdyne
4. Has all the right genes.
"Not married yet, just engaged. But once she drove us fearlessly through the most intense blizzard like an ice road trucker with nerves of steel like it was nothing. I knew then and there that I wanted her genes coursing through my progeny's veins." - cleverkid
5. Turned him into a bumbling mess
"She was literally the first and only girl that ever made me genuinely nervous in every way. I was normally so self-assured, so confident, so cocky, but something about her made all of that fall away to the point I was a bumbling nervous wreck. Thankfully, she apparently found this 'cute.'
"When her car was damaged in a parking lot while under my care (not at fault) and her first words to me when seeing the damage was 'are you OK?' that moment when you discover the woman you're dating cares more for you than an expensive inanimate object is the moment you know." - unknown
"We were on our way to a dinner thing. I had to stop and get air for the tires, and it started to rain... Hard. She spent three hours in the bathroom getting ready, and she got out of the car and put a hoodie on, and held the flashlight for me." - Johnsu
