Though this would not be my personal fantasy (I am not the biggest fan of princess movies), what I love about this proposal is that it is hers. After 13 years of marriage, the best marriage advice I could give any couple is that you have to honor one another's interests. I don't love basketball. Or pole vaulting. Or reading science non-fiction books. But he does. And so when I see something that pertains to those passions, I pay attention. He does that same for me. That support feels like love and connection. And it's what sustains a marriage.
