I'd really like to marry my girlfriend

Unfortunately, we live in a state where that's not considered legal. We're also in a very tight financial situation due to the fact that I'm struggling to finish a degree while also paying loans and making ends meet. I'm working hard at my current job (as well as constantly looking for a higher paying job) in order to save, but I fear that if I wait until we're financially stable to propose then it will never happen. I love her more than anything, she's my best friend and the love of my life and I know she knows that, but marrying her is the last way I have to prove that I want to be with her for the rest of my life. So here's where you come in. I plan to use your donation in order to purchase a very modest ring for her, as well as to aid us in traveling to a location where we will be able to legally marry. IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO DONATE, PLEASE DON'T! I'm not trying to beg, or forego working hard and saving on my own, I'm simply asking for your help. Also, I'm using this in lieu of wedding gifts, since the fact that we will have to travel means that it will be near impossible to have everyone we'd like to in attendance. I also understand that this situation can change! So if marriage becomes legal for us in Ohio, or I manage to secure a better job, or both, then we will use the money you've kindly donated for an awesome reception for you all! Thank you so much for even stopping by my page, please donate if you can, but again only if you can. Thanks!!

Hello everyone! Apologies on the lack of recent updates, our computer bit the dust and so it's been difficult for me to access the page regularly.

Currently I'm talking with both mine and Kat's families, I'm also continuing the ring search, I'll continue to post updates as I can. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated!!!

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, you're all amazing!! My next goal is $2,500. This will cover the travel/lodging/fees for the actual ceremony, which will most likely be happening in Illinois, New York, Massachusetts or California. So keep it up and spread the word! I'll be sneakily ring shopping over the next week or so and posting pictures along the way. I'm hoping to have everything in order for the proposal to happen sometime in February, so stay tuned!

Holy bananas guys thank you so much!! Never did I imagine so much support so quickly! I will certainly be ring shopping this weekend, I'll post pictures of my selections and let you know how the proposal goes....wish me luck! (because even though I know the answer, it's still a nerve-wracking question...)
