Asking the person you love to spend the rest of your life with you can be a daunting task in and of itself, but it seems like each year, proposals become more extravagant. If you just know that your significant other expects to keep up with the trends, or if you simply feel that the only way to pose such a life-altering question is with a massive display, then these suggestions are for you.
Popping the question while you’re in a breath-taking location shows no sign of slowing down in the coming year. Think about whether your next trip will be the perfect stage to pull out a ring.
For whatever reason, there’s something about an outside setting that makes people want to get down on one knee. Sure, indoor proposals can still be wonderful, but if you wanna follow the trends, then head outside.
Petting The Question
An increasing number of people are using their pets to help them ask for their partner’s hand in marriage. After all, it’s even harder to say no to a cute little furry baby.
Capturing The Moment
These days, it’s not enough to simply get pictures of your engagement. Many proposers have been making sure that a hidden photographer is on hand to snap some high-quality photos of the big moment, but another trend on the rise is making sure you get a video of the entire exchange.
Forgoing The Ring
This doesn’t mean that there’s no exchange at all, it simply means that many couples are choosing to propose with a different piece of jewelry instead. You may want to think about what your partner wears most, a necklace, a watch, bracelet, or even something more unusual if you think that perhaps a ring is not the right choice.
30 Husbands Share Their #PregnantWifeProblems and They’re Gold
Pregnancy is often a challenging time in any couple’s life. During those critical nine months, both partners get to know each other even better than they already did. Based on the following social media posts on Instagram, Twitter and beyond, #PregnantWifeProblems come in many shapes and forms. These people took to social media to share what it’s really like to live with someone who is pregnant.
Let’s Go, Baby, Let’s Go!
The following couple loves nothing more than going to NHL games during the weekend to watch their team play. It is a weekly tradition, so much so that they even have a season ticket!
However, when this guy’s wife got pregnant, he was more than happy to stay at home with her and watch the game from the comfort of their TV. Nevertheless, she was adamant that they didn’t break tradition. While hubby was able to enjoy the game, as usual, she couldn’t quite keep her eyes open.
Pickle Your Poison
Many of you might be wondering, what’s the obsession with pickles during pregnancy? Due to pregnant women’s increased blood volume, their need for sodium raises considerably.
Therefore, salty foods like pickles are simply the way to go. This devoted husband knew this after reading numerous manuals and made sure that he had a jar strapped up in the back seat of his car. Talk about safety first!
Croissant, No Questions Asked
For many pregnant women out there, giving alternatives is just not an option. Either they get what they want, or you’re cruising for a bruising. When this guy stopped at a cafe to pick up some treats for his wife, he asked her what she wanted.
When she told him exactly what she wanted, a croissant, he gave the worst possible reply he could have given. He asked her what she wanted if they didn’t have croissants. Next time, just get her what she wants!
Even when you are carrying a baby for nine months, you can still have a sense of humor. In fact, there are many pregnant women out there whose mischievous side comes out even more during this important time in their life.
Take this wife, for example, who appeared to leave a box of Fudge Rounds for her husband to dig into before he left for work that day. Upon opening the box, he should have known this would be the result…
Sharing Is Not Caring
It’s never advised to steal food from your wife during her pregnancy. This might not necessarily apply to all couples, and let’s make this clear: we’re not saying it’s ok to punch your husband in the throat, whether you are pregnant or not.
However, word of advice to all the husbands out there who want some ice-cream when your wife’s pregnant: just buy a tub for yourself. It makes things so much easier. And of course, give her us as much as she needs from your tub.
The Winning Formula
There is a chance that couples can go a little overboard with resources during pregnancy. It is perfectly normal to overstock on essentials and quite frankly, you would rather have way too much than nowhere near enough.
However, it’s best to go out as a couple to make sure that things don’t get out of control. If your pregnant wife goes out to get “some milk and baby formula, don’t be surprised if she comes back with half of the store.
Whatever the Weather
If you haven’t been to Dairy Queen aka DQ by now, where have you been all this time? It is a truly majestic place to get a variety of fast food and ice cream. When this woman was pregnant, she ordered her husband to go and get her virtually every single item on the menu.
Even though there was a severe blizzard that evening, he braved through the snow and got his wife every single thing she wanted. Now that’s dedication.
While we can’t see the entire conversation in this tweet, we can only assume that the pregnant wife began it by simply typing the word “pizza” to her husband. Once again, this a prime example of another husband who is trying to bargain with their significant other who is extremely deep into their pregnancy.
Word of advice people, if she simply sends you a message saying “pizza,” you go and get pizza for her immediately. No questions asked (except for maybe what toppings she wants).
This husband was excited to make his pregnant wife a tasty bowl of guacamole. While he loves nothing more than helping her out during this critical period in their lives, he is also a huge fan of the avocado-based treat.
There are literally morsels of guacamole left. While this guy would usually write his wife an angry text asking her why she left basically nothing for him to enjoy, this situation is under very different circumstances. He’ll take what he can get!
Sweetest Apology Ever
Let’s face it, pregnancy can bring out the best and the worst in couples. Tensions can be high, we can get into arguments and all hell can break loose at the drop of a hat. However, it seems to be universally agreed that the husband does everything in his power to make life as easy as possible for his wife during this critical time in her life.
More often than not, chocolate does a great job of extinguishing a variety of arguments. So you can imagine how happy this woman was when her husband baked her an apology chocolate cake!
You Taco Lot of Talk
We highly doubt that this pregnant wife would actually kill her husband if he didn’t bring tacos home. However, when your wife makes claims like that during this challenging time, you follow her orders! Why would she suspect that he was eating tacos at that very moment though?
Does she have some kind of sixth sense? What makes this message even funnier is that it is resting against a wallpaper of a photo taken from their wedding day! The juxtaposition is hilarious.
When you are shopping with your pregnant wife, you need to understand everyone, not just you, is a target. Literally. This term is even more fitting seeing that the following couple was shopping in Target.
The wife was absolutely flabbergasted when she learned that the candles had been relocated to another part of the store. Consequentially, she gave the employee who broke this news to her the evilest of glares and the husband actually felt sorry for him. He could tell that he was absolutely terrified.
Breathe Elsewhere, Please
It seems like virtually all of the senses are heightened during pregnancy. You feel like you can hear, smell, taste and see everything so much clearer and more often than not, this can actually be extremely irritating.
The closer one gets to the due date, the worse this phenomenon gets. While many of us wake up with relatively bad breath in the morning, this guy’s breath was just way too offensive for his pregnant wife to deal with, she told him straight up to turn the other way!
Who’s the Boss Now?
This photo perfectly encapsulates the dynamic between a husband and wife during pregnancy. At the end of the day, the one who is pregnant calls the shots. While we highly doubt that this woman ordered her husband to cook her dinner, her Instagram story is a funny interpretation of what is actually happening here.
Nice to see that she’s just kicking back in her throne as she watches her man make her dinner. Of course, we have blurred out a word in this Instagram story, but you get the point.
Time to Move Back In!
If your pregnant wife is struggling to sleep comfortably while sharing a bed with you, you simply have no choice but to move out and sleep on the couch until further notice. If you have a guest bedroom, then that’s a useful alternative. Otherwise, it’s going to have to be the sofa!
This soon-to-be dad had to sleep in the guest room for two long nights before he was able to move back into the master bedroom. He was even allowed to use his own pillow again!
Multi-Tasking at it’s Finest
They say that women are much better at multi-tasking than men. Ultimately though, that is just a stereotype and it really just depends on the individual. With that said, it seems like this pregnant woman is living up to the stereotype in a truly unique way.
Not only is she holding onto a box of chocolate chip cookies, ready to eat if she gets hungry, she is also enjoying a deep sleep at the same time, meaning that she is pretty much ready for anything.
The Curse of Vanilla
It is widely agreed that vanilla is the blandest of ice cream flavors. So when you are living with a pregnant person and you are attempting to share a tub of ice cream, there is a really strong chance that vanilla is what you will be left with.
Seeing that the person who is pregnant gets dibs on the more stimulating flavors, be prepared to have a pretty “vanilla” nine months. That’s just the way it goes when you have a tub that has three flavors in it.
When one is pregnant, it is important to have food ready to eat even if it gets to a point where the body is telling you not to. According to this guy, his wife decided to make mac and cheese even though she probably wouldn’t eat it all.
In the end, it turns out that she devoured the entire box and she absolutely regretted it. Pregnancies can make people do all sorts of weird, irrational, and impulsive things when it comes to food.
While you can plan when to have a baby, the reality is that women get pregnant all year round. It seems like no matter what time of the year a baby might be on the way, the fan simply needs to be on so the person in question can cool down.
This husband was extremely frustrated when he asked his wife if they could turn the fan off seeing that it was 15 degrees outside. As far as she was concerned though, they most definitely still needed the fan on.
Picnic On the Go
It’s important to have just the right amount of activity during pregnancy. If you overdo it, that can have a negative impact on the entire process. However, it’s also advised not to remain completely still during the entire nine months.
This couple had an important catch when it came to going out for walks. Every time they went out for a stroll, they would load up on a variety of food items. These included pickles, sandwiches, cookies and other snacks – each wrapped in a plastic bag.
Not That Kind of Frozen
When a pregnant woman has a craving, the best thing that her husband can do is help her satisfy it. Needless to say, it isn’t necessarily the time to play a practical joke.
This husband was sent out to pick up some frozen yogurt. While he was at the store, he noticed a package of yogurt with a theme matching the Frozen movie. He said that he was tempted to grab it as a joke but he’d rather live to see another day.
Pregnant women don’t take their food lightly. That’s a lesson that this husband learned the hard way when he tried to sneak some fast food into his house without buying any for his wife.
He received a rather testy text to kick off the conversation with his wife threatening to divorce him if he got McDonald’s without her one more time. He tried to defend himself claiming that the food wasn’t his but his wife obviously wasn’t buying it.
An Interesting Snack
Pregnancy causes some unusual cravings. However, it’s best to just provide her with what she needs without asking too many questions – or trying the concoction she’s created personally.
This husband shared an image of the results of his shopping list with a simple and straightforward caption of “Yes, my wife is pregnant. Why do you ask?” Luckily, he’s ready to cater to whatever his wife needs, even if that is a mix of rocky road ice cream and sliced pickles.
A Chilly Situation
Cravings aren’t the only changes that pregnancy brings. Many husbands also find themselves adjusting their thermostats to levels they never thought that they would before.
This husband shared an image of his and his wife’s thermostat at a fairly chilly 60 degrees Fahrenheit. This is almost impressively cold since most people keep their thermostats closer to 70 degrees. He shared that this was the temperature that his wife required when she took a nap before work. He jokingly described the temperature as “balmy.”
Ready for Anything
This soon-to-be mom was ready for anything when her husband shared this image. The picture shows a small takeaway container with snacks and an extra Hershey’s Kiss to boot.
Her husband shared this image and mused on why his wife was packing road snacks. They weren’t going out for the day or to anywhere special, just the grocery store. She was just ready in case she started to feel snacky while they were out. In fact, it’s a pretty smart idea.
Everyone Deserves a Pillow Fort
Pregnancy is a magical time but there are quite a few side effects. One of which is the difficulty getting comfortable when you lay down at night without plenty of extra comfortable tools.
This husband documented his wife’s challenge when he took her to a hotel for a relaxing weekend before their baby was born. She took full advantage of the amenities – namely the fluffy hotel pillows to relax into and find a comfortable position. She looks pretty happy in the image!
Sometimes, you don’t know what you want to eat until you taste it. Unfortunately, this also means you might taste something and realize it isn’t what you want at the moment.
This husband realized his wife was struggling with the latter situation when he started to find partially eaten snacks. This particular donut has one perfect bite taken out of it before it was put back. We can’t fault her for it – sometimes you just don’t know until you try it out.
She Knows What She Wants
When this husband was sent to the grocery store, his wife knew exactly what she wanted. So, she made sure to send him out with a list so that he wouldn’t forget anything.
Her list, though, has some strict demands that her husband would do well not to forget. She’s specified three times that he’s to get cereal. Not to mention, she included that he should obtain “all the cereal” and twice more that she needs plenty of cereal.
This time, a pregnant woman was here to share her husband’s effort to help her while she’s pregnant. He did this in the form of a bit of a spa day.
She noted that as her pregnancy went along, she was having trouble reaching her feet to paint her toenails. That’s when her husband stepped in to do the job for her so she wouldn’t have to worry about it. Even better, it seems like he’s doing a pretty good job!
Playing with Fire
Sometimes, humor is the best medicine when things start to get a little stressful. Other times, it isn’t very welcome at all. This husband decided to try the odds and play with fire when he answered this request.
We hope that this person’s wife saw the humor in the situation when this husband delivered a little too literally on a request. When his wife asked for a “small bowl of cereal” he gave her this – an almost doll-sized amount of cereal.
Practice Makes Perfect
When you’re becoming a new parent, there’s a lot to learn. So, of course, you want to practice before the baby arrives. Practice makes perfect, right?
This husband shared a photo of a cat that might not be too happy with his owners right now. The reason that this unhappy kitty named Skittles is wrapped up tight is that his wife wanted to practice swaddling before she did it to the newborn baby. What a patient kitty to help his family during this time.
An Impressive Feat
This husband took a second to share a particularly interesting talent that his wife found she had when she was 41 weeks pregnant. He even captioned it that “I love this woman so so so much.”
When many women get to be but so pregnant, they struggle to bend over. This woman found out that she didn’t need to bend over if she wanted to check her feet. Instead, she simply pulled her leg up to her face while she stood on one foot.
Cravings can hit anytime and anywhere. That’s a fact that this husband knows well after his wife woke up with a craving for a midnight snack.
As he tells it, she was browsing the internet when a picture of a snack came up: Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Oreo creme. So, she woke him up at 3 a.m. with the request that he run out and get some from the store. He reported that it was completely worth it.
A Helpful Spot
When it comes to pregnancy, sometimes you have to learn to do things a little differently. This woman obviously used her baby bump to her advantage.
Her husband managed to snap a picture of this cute moment while they were in the car one day. She was enjoying a snack on the road while she balanced the foam cup it came in on her stomach. It’s a pretty handy spot to balance a snack after all and a little ingenuity can go a long way.
If you’re pregnant during Halloween, you have to be a little creative. When this woman was pregnant, her husband showed the two of them getting a little creative for the holiday.
To accommodate her pregnancy, she wanted to choose a costume that showcased. Who better to be than Juno MacGuff from the movie Juno? To complete this couple’s costume, her husband went as Paulie Bleeker – Micheal Cera’s character from the movie – alongside her. We’re sure they got plenty of attention for such a creative choice.
It’s understandable that someone who’s pregnant is going to be a bit more forgetful than usual. They are dedicating more and more of themselves to their growing baby. So ultimately, the cogs just aren’t working like they usually should.
This guy described his wife as having a “mooshbrain” after she made him a sandwich for lunch without any filling in it whatsoever. He saw the funny side of it and couldn’t help but share a photo of the “blank canvas” on Twitter.
Marriage is all about compromise and even more so when there is a baby on the way. This devoted husband is giving his pregnant wife plenty of space so that she can have the comfortable sleep that she deserves.
Moreover, it seems like he is wrapping up in multiple layers so that they can keep the fan on during this point in her pregnancy. It might be cold, but at least she’s comfortable, and that is all that matters.
Pickles R’ Us
Just one social media post about pickles in a pregnant woman’s life is not enough! This devoted husband also made a concerted effort to stock up on as many pickle jars as possible, placing them around the house to make wifey’s life as easy as possible.
Even after buying all of these jars, this guy jokingly claimed that he wasn’t sure if he had bought enough pickles for his beloved, pregnant wife! We think they’ll be covered, at least for a few days!
Stuck in the Mud
Going out for dinner with your pregnant spouse can be an experience, in and of itself! In the past, you might have struggled to have room to order a dessert of any kind. However, when your wife is deep into her pregnancy, a big slice of mud pie shouldn’t be a problem, whatsoever.
If you have time, make sure to check out the original tweet as there are plenty more photos of the wife devouring this beautiful-looking cake!
Taking it Cheesy
Who said that women can’t live their best life out in the sun during pregnancy? This pregnant woman was perfectly fine kicking back for most of the day, taking in the sun’s rays, listening to music and feasting on a huge tub of cheese balls.
While pregnant women should stay relatively active during those nine months, it is just as useful to enjoy those moments of quiet. When that baby arrives, it is time to move!
Time to Fill Up
It’s easy to get carried away at the gas station. As if gas wasn’t expensive enough as it is. Before you know it, you can end up spending a fortune on snacks and other necessities while you are on the road.
However, this guy couldn’t help but post a tweet about the time he stopped at the gas station and left his pregnant wife in the car. It turns out that they didn’t even stop to pump up on gas. She just wanted a ton of snacks!
Field of Dreams
Many of us can relate to the following Instagram post. One of the greatest pleasures in married life is to kick back with your loved one during the weekend and enjoy whatever’s on TV with a variety of snacks.
This couple was excited to watch the football game and eat a big bowl of nachos, which is what they usually do during the weekend. However, this guy’s pregnant wife simply couldn’t stay awake. In fact, she ended up missing one of the best games of the season! Hubby didn’t mind though.
Huffin’ for Muffins
At the end of the day, it makes perfect sense that grocery shopping during pregnancy is going to be a bit pricier than usual. However, this husband found a hilarious way to make that point on social media.
This pregnant wife saw the funny side of it when her husband caught in the act of opening up a box of muffins just seconds before returning to the car from their grocery shopping! “Didn’t even get the car started and she’s opened the muffins,” he wrote on the Instagram caption.
Now You See It…
While it’s a very kind gesture to provide one’s pregnant wife with a chocolate cake, don’t expect to get a chance to eat much of it. This man was able to get a piece the night he brought the cake home.
However, the morning after, he discovered nothing more than some crumbs and a tin tray. It’s almost as if it became a race to see who could eat most of the chocolate cake. Needless to say, the man’s wife won this race with flying colors.
