You did not read the article. He was not stupid either. I thought it was a very cute way to propose. It was an accident and I feel for him and the bride. RIP

You probably should have taken 30 seconds to read the article. She said that she would have said YES!

What was wrong with proposing like everyone else does, on bent knee and giving the ring on her finger on land?

It seems between family and friends they want to make the proposal quite memorable. One brother proposed while riding horses on the beach. A girl friend was proposed to somewhere around Times Square.

So proposing like everyone else may not be quite how you picture it but rather for many various people, quite unique and special.

Now, in this case, I wonder if there was a prenuptial agreement or something.

Such a sad miscalculation. On The Other Side I do think most people are embarrassed to say how they died.
Most are by accidents I bet...stupid reaching, avoidable slipping, stepping on some precarious thing,
laughing while eating potato chips alone...ha, avoiding a squirrel..
Tennessee Williams must have been very embarrassed.

Were his last words something along the lines of, "Hold my beer..."?

Sometimes it's not about how others will feel, but rather, how the gf/future bride will feel. The excitement leading up to, and at the point, and AFTER, can cause some to attempt to think outside of the box and come up with creative ways to propose.
I proposed in the middle of a lake on top of a mountain. No family or friends were around, and there were no cameras. Just us. It was for us (well, especially her), not for attention.

I thought this story was sad, and frankly, I'm surprised he even died like that. Doesn't look to be THAT deep. I am pretty certain I've reached those depths while free-diving myself, without ever being in fear of drowning/

Not so much cute as dangerous. Could have been cute if he'd taken proper precautions, worn a tank, or at the very least a snorkel if he only planned on coming right back up and it wasn't too deep. I'm right there with everyone else wondering if he got too disoriented or confused to come up, and how much of that was due to inexperience or lack of knowledge.
Did anyone else find her saying they had 'enjoyed the most amazing bucket list experiences the past few days' to be jarring?
