Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.27.29 PMThis is one proposal that breaks all the laws of love, but ends up with a happy ending.

Matt Van Vliet met Samantha Labo four years ago when the couple was arrested at an underage drinking party. After passing a Breathalyzer test and a testimony from their parents, they were let go by the New Hampshire police. The two carried on a conversation while in jail, and the romance blossomed.

Four years later, Van Vliet enlisted New London, N.H., Police Chief Edward G. Andersen, the two cops who pulled them over, and pulled over this elaborate arrest proposal. He was handcuffed and everything, and when the officer conducted a pat-down, well, tadah, there was a ring box in Van Vliet’s pocket. He then went on to propose to Labo, and the dashcam on the police car got the whole thing.

It certainly is creative, and as long as it doesn’t break any laws, you’re good to go!

Honestly, I’m not a big fan of underwater proposals, being averse to swimming myself, and this interesting wedding proposal item underscores my fear: a British woman nearly died when her boyfriend proposed to her during a scuba diving trip in Turkey.

Stephanie Walker gasped in shock when boyfriend Anthony Taylor held out a laminated card that read, “Will You Marry Me,” while the couple was 12 meters underwater at the Marmaris Resort in Turkey.

The gasp filled Walker’s mask with water and caused her to choke. Luckily, diving instructors nearby helped her clear her mask out in time to see Taylor hold out a diamond ring. The couple returned safely to the surface, but not before underwater cameras caught Walker holding up another laminated card that read, “Yes.” (And yes, for the curious, there was no “No” card.)

I know there are Filipino couples that have also gotten engaged underwater. Is this something you’d like to do?

In the mood for a stunt? Propose to someone who you have no chance in hell at all of marrying.

Mexican TV reporter Ines Gomez Mont, who reports for Mexican television show TV Azteca, was politely jilted by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who is currently dating supermodel Giselle Bundchen (more popularly known as the former love of actor Leonardo DiCaprio).

Wearing a short white wedding dress, veil and red pumps, the reporter blurted out “Marry me.”

“I have a few Mrs. Bradys in my life,” he answered promptly.

“He is very gorgeous,” Gomez Mont said afterwards, “I know Gisele is very gorgeous.”
