Romance is the spice of life. Let’s admit it, we’re all waiting for our own version of a fairytale and a happy ending. After all, we all deserve a story that’s as unique as we are. Here are 7 love and proposal stories of people who got their own magical happy ending...or beginning!
We cannot have a list of legendary proposals without making the King of Romance, Shahrukh Khan and his wife Gauri Khan’s story, a part of it. They both met at a party when SRK was only 18 and as they say rest is history. Their love story, was in a typical fashion, completely filmy. Gauri’s parents, who were Hindu Brahmin, were against the relationship and did not agree to let Gauri get married to somebody from another religion who was a struggling actor. Eventually, after a long fight, they did manage to convince her parents. This is what SRK said about his proposal on The Anupam Kher Show - ‘I had a Fiat back then and I was dropping her home. That is when I asked her if she will marry me and went off, I didn't even wait for her to say 'yes' or 'no.' She must have said a 'yes' only, because then we were married off.’ True love always wins!

A proposal planned over a period of three years? Sounds impossible, right? Not for Timothy or Candice! When Timothy saw Candice for the first time, he knew she was the girl he wanted to marry.

There are some people who go all out for a proposal, spending a bomb on it and there are some who make a necklace for their girlfriends with the engagement ring hidden in it to wear around their neck.
