Is it still a yes? #PendingProposals

It’s always the right time to ask “Will you continue to be my partner forever?”

The legend of Troy. Romeo and Juliet. Heartfelt songs through the decades. Simran’s dad realising what’s in her heart, and letting her chase a happy ending. All of these instances have one common thread connecting them – Love. No matter where we go, the journey we take, a (not-so) small part of us seeks out love, to find our soulmates and have our fairytale romance. Because no matter who we are, where we live, how old we are and what we believe in, we all want the same things – our forever person, and a fairytale ending.

A Pending Proposal
For a lot of couples, especially in India, happily ever after begins with marriage – a bond that, across human history, is said to have been made in heaven. However, not every marriage written in the stars gets the stage for a perfect proposal on Earth.

The reasons behind not having a proposal, you ask? From cultural differences to financial situations, the reasons are aplenty. Maybe, like Virat Kholi and Anushka Sharma, they felt their relationship evolved seamlessly from a romance to marriage. Or like Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput, the soulmates were brought together through an arranged marriage. Or perhaps still, they chose to keep their wedding private, much like Jessica Alba and Cash Warren.

Perhaps they were together for so long, their parents decided it was time for them to tie the knot. Or maybe, distance couldn’t keep their love apart anymore. Maybe the perfect ring took a longer time to find its way to you. Or perhaps every time they tried to ask, something kept interrupting the moment (thank you, hotel server and incessantly ringing phones), so they decided to just go for it.

So, we may ask, can we not create that moment of pure love even though we have found our happily ever after? And the answer is a definite yes! Your marriage is your story to tell along with your partner, in any way you want. Especially if it means expressing your innermost feelings to your partner with a #PendingProposal as a symbol of continuing love and commitment.

A proposal after marriage? Really? 
The idea of proposing to your partner after marriage may seem baffling at first, but think about it. After being married, you start learning everything there is to know about your partner – strengths, weaknesses, idiosyncrasies et al. You know how they express themselves, how their face lights up with a surprise from you and you know that no matter what life throws at you, you will make it through as long as your partner is by your side. So, now when you go down on one knee to ask your partner to continue being yours forever, it holds a completely different meaning. Because what is a pending proposal really, other than an unforgettable moment of a stronger commitment and love?

Love set in stones
To truly express the multitude of emotions leading up to a pending proposal, you need the perfect ring, one that signifies not just the present of your relationship, but also the past and more importantly, the future.

Drawing from the plethora of yesterdays that helped you build your today and shape what your future will look like, is the uniquely beautiful, 3-stone diamond proposal ring. Each stone on this ring symbolises a different part of your journey of love.

The leftmost stone signifies the beauty of all your yesterdays – the small fights, little pockets of affection and finding your rhythm with your partner.
The centre stone encapsulates your relationship’s present – being in perfect sync with your partner, building a stronger relationship based on love, trust and open communication.
The rightmost stone captures the possibilities of your relationship’s future – the promise of a continuing forever, together.

Little moments, Big love
Unlike what movies and fiction stories tell us, love isn’t about grand gestures and loud professions. It’s about the little things like sharing the morning cup of chai together or fighting over whose turn it is to do the dishes for the 376545th time , that make any relationship grow stronger by the day. As your relationship grows, you realise another important thing – there’s nothing more beautiful than wanting to spend the rest of the future with the same person you’ve built your present with.
