As I suspected it would be, the answer was no.  She is nothing if not consistent.

Unfortunately for her, I am persistent.

Why this particular peccadillo of mine?  I am unsure to be frank.  Perhaps a sliver of a Catholic conscience remains in my sinner's brain and demands that marriage is the final stage.  A friend of mine asked why it was so important to me.  I don't really know, all I know is that it is.  Ten years (longer really) of being together is more stable than most marriages and yet I still want that ritual.  The odd part to those that know us, is that it's the man who wants the ritual, not the woman.  She'd be quite happy to leave things as they are and be done with it.

But I can't let go of the notion that we should be married.

Yes, we've talked about it, discussed it and danced around it until we agreed to disagree.  The only stubborn remnant of my faint hope is the tradition.

There is, after all, always next year.

I am about to expose a sad little tradition that began by accident ten years ago today.

Today sometime, I will ask a woman who is my everything to marry me.

Today sometime, I will take out the ring and get down on one knee and propose.

Today sometime, I will do what I have done for ten years in row because today sometime, I will ask and She will say no.

I will hurt for a bit then get better.

It's our tradition.
