Here at TheGloss we are clearly in favor of marriage, maybe, sometimes, for some people, if they’re the right people. That said, getting proposed to by someone you didn’t want to marry would be sad and awful for everyone involved. And getting proposed to by someone you don’t want to marry on a jumbtron is a horrible nightmare, because when you politely shake your head “no” everyone will boo you. Because no matter what that guy did in the past – cheating, murder, dog-fucking – you are now going to be seen as a cold-hearted bitch, who rejected someone on a jumbotron. What would you do if this happened? Would you just do a fake “yes” and then explain the engagement wouldn’t work later? How much later? I would probably just marry this person and stay with them forever to avoid this uncomfortable situation, dog-fucking aside. We could work past the dog fucking.
