This is why proposing on a pedalo is generally a terrible idea.
It was just all wrong from the start. After getting a little excited, and wobbly, his wife-to-be (or maybe not anymore) knocks the ring out of his hand and into the murky waters. For the sake of the article, let’s assume he never found it and the whole thing was a terrible nightmare.
It’s better that way. But seriously, I hope he found it.
