I am not the sort of person who normally would offer my opinion to a complete stranger but a paragraph in your recent report stated: "It is rubbish especially after we have been together for 12 years and it took him ten years to ask, because he said he needed to make sure I was wife material."

It made me so cross that I would say to the young lady concerned cut your losses and run as fast as you can in the other direction.
