In fact the proposal was a simple little matter.
It was the first day they had spent in their half renovated house, late in the evening after going out for dinner.
It was getting late and Marie had insisted on changing into her pajamas. She sat down on the couch getting ready to watch some television.
So after a few little questions (of which Marie was quite suspicious already - he had asked her why she was in her pajamas so early, but it wasn't anything unusual
for Marie) David got down on one knee and asked Marie to spend the rest of
her life with him in matrimonial bliss.
Marie's reply, of course, was yes.
