Diamond Engagement Ring

Diamond Engagement Ring

I have always loved the scene in The Time Traveler’s Wife when Rachel McAdams wakes up with an diamond engagement ring on her finger. She rejects the offer to her lover just to see if physics will allow it which, of course, it doesn’t…and neither will her heart.

Even though some might argue that simply waking up with a diamond engagement ring on your finger is not one of the most ideal or romantic proposal scenarios, I beg to differ. Waking up next to the person you love with a ring suddenly on your finger subtly hints that you didn’t even need the proposal or a marriage ceremony to know that you and your lover are bound together. Since you both feel so intertwined already, there is no need for words. There is no need to pop the big question or have any big engagement party to impress other people. You both are alone in our own little world together.

In the case of the movie, they truly were destined to be together and they were both already aware of that, due to the main character’s time travel capabilities. Therefore, simply slipping a diamond engagement ring on Rachel McAdams’ finger while she was asleep seemed very appropriate. However, even in a real-life scenario, where no one is time-travelling, I would not mind one bit if someone proposed to me this way. I think it would a delightful surprise to wake up and find one of these beautiful diamond engagement ring on your finger and know that you will be spending the rest of your life with your soul mate!

This act says so much without saying anything at all.
