These Three Couples Got Engaged In The Middle Of The COVID-19 Pandemic & We’re All So Happy For Them
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, it seems like everything has come to a standstill. Get-togethers, dinner plans, and other scheduled events have been canceled, and even walking without fear in a crowded place is not possible for most.
However, the same cannot be said about everybody as some people don’t want to wait for things to get back to normal before going forward with their plans. Below, we have three couples that have taken matters into their own hands and moved on with their lives by getting engaged despite all the chaos brought on by COVID-19!
Ali Knapp and Billy Clemons
Billy is in business school, and in May, all of his batchmates were supposed to visit various international locations for a month’s worth of work. Billy made plans to visit Chile, where Ali was going to meet him. The two were supposed to go to Peru’s Machu Picchu, where Billy planned to propose to the love of his life in the presence of their mutual friends.
But due to the COVID crisis, everything changed. That is why Billy adopted somewhat of a unique technique. He set up a tent in is house and used the TV to cast the spot where he had initially planned to propose to Ali. He ended up a surprising proposal to which Ali said, “yes.” The couple posted the pictures on Instagram, sharing that they are now happily engaged!
Nicole Pompino and Bob Kane
Since Nicole met Bob in 2016, she has always insisted that she wanted to get engaged early. So Bob started looking at rings back in early January, and his initial plan was to put “marry me?” spelled out on balloons with their dog all dressed up on the side.
But after the world went on lockdown, he hid the ring in a closet. Later, he was fired from his job without any savings. Hearing this, Nicole started crying, and at that moment, he knew that it was the right time to make her happy. He took out the ring, got on one knee, and proposed to her. Nicole and Bob said that although it wasn’t supposed to be like this, they needed that joyous moment to lift them from all the sadness in the world. A lot of people thought so, too, as they shared their story on Social Media.
Julie Becker and Sam Spector
Julie Becker is a teacher by profession, and she had plans to visit Florida to spend her summer break with Sam. But due to the coronavirus, Sam convinced her that she should come early, as they were unaware of what the world would become in the coming days.
Sam tucked a ring in his pocket, which he picked out with his dad passed, who sadly passed away in January. On top of that, both of them caught the coronavirus. Thankfully, they are now recovering, and Sam even got a chance to propose to Julie!
