Awww SO Romantic: Gay Us Marine Proposes To His Partner At The White House
It’s Monday, and it’s always stories like this that make the day a little better. In a first ever in history a gay couple got engaged in the White House. United States Marine Corps’ Phelps got down on one knee and proposed to his longterm boyfriend (now fiancé) Ben Schock. Phelps said that he wanted to propose there because it was where they had their first date:
“I wanted to propose to Ben at the White House because that’s where we went for our first date, to the LGBT Pride Month Reception in June,”Although we had met a couple years prior at the 2010 Servicemembers Legal Defense Network annual dinner, we didn’t actually start dating until we both made it back to Washington D.C. two years later.”
“When we received an invitation from the Military Partners and Families Coalition to attend the White House holiday tour on Dec. 15, the coincidence that it would be the six-month anniversary of our first date — and also to the White House — was too big not to capitalize on.”
Isn’t that so sweet! Now that’s something that will definitely put a smile on your face. We wish the happy and newly engaged couple all the best and that their love grow exponentially each and every day. Congrats!!!
