“Then, in 1228, a law was passed in Scotland, giving women the legal right to propose to an unmarried man (on a leap day). Should he refuse, legally, she could claim a new gown or a pair of gloves in addition to a cash payment of one pound — and one pound in those days was a lot of money.”I had no idea that this Friday I have a free pass to propose to someone. An unmarried someone (which means I have to eliminate married men from my list of possibilities). Typically, I wouldn't consider it (I'm from the John Eldridge school of dangerous men rescuing princesses), but since a rejection would equal fashion AND money, it might be worth the awkwardness. Of course, for those who've never gone shopping with me, I will warn you: finding a gown that rocks my world will be tricky. You may decide to marry me after all. Which would make it win-win. I win (I'm not rejected) and you win (you don't have to dress shop).
Hmm. Who to choose?
