Buying an engagement ring on the sly is difficult when you have shared bank accounts, as Michael discovered when he decided to propose to Bethany.
He realised he had to tell her that he’d spent a substantial amount of money, but her birthday was coming up so at least he had another excuse.
As they both love the beach, Michael chose his moment when they were staying in Torquay for a few days. They were on the beach and there were no other people around, so he dropped to one knee and popped the question.
He even managed to record the moment on his phone, unbeknownst to Bethany.
“Even though I kinda knew it was coming, it was so beautiful that I absolutely didn’t know what to say; which is very unlike me!”
