Her father’s funeral was certainly not the place where she expected to receive a marriage proposal. However, in the middle of the ceremony, a woman saw the pastor kneel before her to ask her to marry him…

Thinking about his marriage proposal is a dream shared by many women in a relationship. What will be the place? How will he ask? Will he get down on his knees? Will they be one-on-one or in small groups? How will the ring be?

If everyone has their own idea on the subject, no woman dreams of her fiancé asking her to marry him in an absolutely incongruous context… And yet, it was during her father’s funeral that a woman was entitled to his request…
